Review of Kew Fete 2015

  • Midsummer in Kew was given a great start at the 6th annual Fete on Saturday 20th June organised by local people for local people although its appeal drew huge crowds from further afield. Thousands of people flocked to Kew Green throughout the day drawn by the lively bands on the stage, opening with The Rock Choir and the squeals of delight from children on the traditional Victorian fairground rides.
  • There was plenty to enjoy including soul, folk and rock music with a toe-tapping performance from an Afro-Brazilian drumming band and dance and karate displays by local children. The busy Food Court provided an array of international cuisine from Jamaican jerk chicken, crepes, paella and Ethiopian vegetarian dishes to traditional tea and scones! Over 100 craft stalls drew the shoppers while children enjoyed the petting farm, the bungee and slide inflatables and Beat The Goalie.
  • The hugely popular Dog Show had a wonderful array of entries, many in the cross-breed and pedigree sections and the judges were impressed in the Best Trick category by Chanel, a chihuahua who showed her dainty pointy paw ballet moves! Best in Show went to Sid, a lovable Bassett Hound who also scooped Best Old Dog being nearly 11 years old. He won over Celebrity Judge Krishnan Guru-Murthy, anchor at Channel 4 News with his sympathetic eyes and model behaviour.
  • The lucky dip sold out early and raffle ticket sales were unprecedented which has added to the estimated funds of over £19,000 raised this year to be shared among 18 local charities: Kew Community Trust, Richmond Borough MIND, Kew Scout Group, The Holly Lodge Centre, The Mulberry Centre, REFUGE Chiswick, The Richmond Food Bank, Off the Record , The Haven, Friends of Abbeyfield, Pensford Field Environmental Trust, React, Spear, Leuka, Home Start Richmond, Star & Garter Home, Orange Tree Theatre and Small Steps.
  • Chairman of the Kew Midsummer Fete Committee Michael Glazebrook said: “Everyone had a fantastic day, helping us raise as much as possible for local charities. Yet again the fete brought together sponsorship and support from the local community and beyond. We’re still counting but our total charitable fund since 2009 now exceeds £65,000 which is down to our great volunteers who work so tirelessly and our generous sponsors, Taylor Wimpey, Richmond Vets, Fuller’s, Dexters, Honda Chiswick and Kew Park Rangers”
