Thanks to all who came to the latest fundraiser for the Furry Dance, which was the delightful cream tea in Graham Wills’ lovely garden overlooking the estuary.We made a super profit of £496 and are now in the final stages of planning the entertainment for you at the Fete and Furry Dance on Saturday 6 August.

This year you can enjoy the fair rides, village band, stalls, car boot sale, dog show, tarot card reader and other stands plus an exciting display by Honiton Gymnastic Club. There will also be plenty to eat and drink with a BBQ, beer tent, teas and ice creams. We will have children’s entertainment at the Fete and in the early evening on The Green. And don’t forget the firework display later in the evening. We’d like to see as many people dress up and join in the Furry Dance as possible.

Please note the main village road will be closed from 6pm to midnight on Furry Dance Day meaning vehicles will not be able to enter or leave the lower part of Lympstone during the closure. The road closed signs will be clearly displayed and the Friends of the Furry Dance will be grateful for your co-operation for this special annual event.
