COLYTON residents flocked to the annual fete at St Andrew’s Church this weekend for some traditonal summer fun. The fair was held on Saturday on the church green, where a number of stalls and traditional fete games and activities were set up. Volunteers from the 1st Colyton Scouts and Brownies ran the “Saints” Pimm’s bar and grill in aid of the church, while the Guides helped at the community cafe inside serving teas, coffees and homemade cakes. The Scouts also ran a skittles competition and coconut shy. Other attractions included a bouncy castle, portrait painiting, balloon art and musical entertainment from the Axe River Jazz Band and Colyton-based brother and sister duo, Six Days. Local organisations running stalls included St Michael’s Chapel in Colyford, St Andrew’s Choir, the Friends of St Andrew’s, and the Friends of Colyton Library who were promoting their upcoming talk with Ann Widdecombe and recruiting volunteers to help run the library following county council budget cuts. There was also a book stalls, plants, homemade cakes, a whiskey raffle and grand raffle.
