Fun-filled summer fete
There promises to be something for everyone at The Rowans Hospice summer fete, a fun-filled family event at Lakeside North Harbour on Sunday 4th September.
The event, to be officially opened at 1pm by the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, will include a host of entertainment such as music, dancing and a fun dog show.
There are more than 50 stalls including homemade produce, crafts, games, competitions and also a display of vintage cars.
There will, of course, be the usual ice creams, face painting and children’s rides too. Other highlights include The Rowans Hospice Grand Summer Draw which will take place at 3.30pm, with a first prize of £1,000 plus plenty of other prizes. Raffle tickets are available for £1 each and are on sale at the fete until the time of the draw.
Eliza Dunn, events and community fundraiser at The Rowans Hospice, said: “This event is a lovely day out for all the family and, come rain or shine, the atmosphere is amazing. We hope that once again our local community will come along and support Rowans summer fete at its new, bigger venue at Lakeside North Harbour. Although there is no entry fee, please bring along your pennies to enjoy all the fun activities which in turn raises vital funds for local hospice care.
“I would also like to thank all the volunteers who help run the fete; without their dedication and enthusiasm we would not be able to organise such a wonderful event.”
Entry to the summer fete is free and there is organised car parking. Lakeside North Harbour is easily accessible from the Motorway and A27, centrally located within the Hospice’s ‘Area of Care’ – PO6 3EN.
