Dozens of families turned out to enjoy a “resurrected” village fete at the weekend.

Residents enjoyed food, music and plenty of entertainment at the newly revived Marlow Bottom fete, organised by the Barn Club and Village Hall committees.

Visitors on the day enjoyed a BBQ, donkey rides, a martial arts and Pilates display, as well as an exhibition by Marlow Arts & Crafts.

Children were treated to face painting, a bouncy castle, a miniature coconut shy, candy floss and a chance to see a police car.

Michael Earle, secretary of the Barn Club, said: “Up until the early 1990s there had been a Village Hall Fete but this was primarily to raise money for the Village Hall.

“There had also been the Rose Carnival which was replaced with the pop concert, Rock Bottom, a few years ago and that raised money for the Playing Fields.

“When both the fete and the Rose Carnival stopped there was nothing that could be described as a true community event.

“The committees of both the Barn Club and the Village Hall thought it would be a good idea to resurrect the idea of a village fete for everyone in the valley.”
