This year will see the award of the first Sue Pickering Arts and Crafts Memorial Prize. Sue led the planning and organising of the fete for over 20 years and was key to making it happen. Sue, who died in 2012 after a long illness, was a talented artist and in her memory and in recognition of all her for for the fete, children from preschool age to 11 have been invited to submit artwork – this year based on the Olympics.

In addition to a small prize, the winners in each age group will have their names inscribed on the Honours Board, which will be displayed in the Vilalge Hall.

Winning and highly commended entries from the 2012 Sue Pickering Memorial Prize, judged by Julian Parsons and Dorothy & Philip Smith at the Village Fete.
