Quote from Thelma : "It was thriving, packed with holidaymakers, stalls of bric-à-brac, Cis’s parcels, knitted goods, tombola, raffle, etc, and games - the children love Jean’s marble one.  I looked through the gateway to the restaurant and the outside table area was packed . . . "

Evening Fete at Base Camp 29th May 2021.

Here we are in the middle of June enjoying some gorgeous summer weather.


The fundraising team have managed to hold two mini fetes on the lawn near Basecamp at Clippesby Hall.

We have managed to bank £692.00 for Church funds.  Special thanks go to all those people who kindly helped out and to all those who supported us . These events are most enjoyable and it's lovely to be able to talk to people about Clippesby Church, Jean has kindly put together a display so people can read about St Peter's . People who are on holiday seem to really enjoy these events,  (and so do our local village residents.)

Hopefully we can hold more fetes thoughout the summer months, and fundraising team hope to arrange other exciting events, so watch this space!


Stay safe everyone


God Bless

Robert’s 10k 2021, ending at Hall Farm House, Clippesby


Thelma's son-in-law  Rob Barker on return from his  10k run, a year after his prostate cancer operation which, because of COVID, was delayed from March to June 2020.

He found the moral support from Prostate Cancer UK so helpful that he decided to try and raise £2021 in a year by doing a sponsored run 12 months on.
