Our annual fete, which has been held every year since 1959, raises funds for the village organisations – the Pre-school, the WI, Speen Playing Fields, Speen School PTA, Scouts and Guides, the local Heritage Group and the Speen & North Dean News. In special need this year is the pre-school, so an extra 30% share of the profits will go to them. Every little helps, but we generate almost £1500 from those businesses who advertise in the Fete Programme. This year our advertisers, to whom we extend a really big “Thank You”, are :-
