Dddington Village Fete – a great afternoon out

I hope the organisers of Diddington Village Fete were very happy with the fruits of all their hard work.

A large number of people came to the small village off the A1 near to St Neots to enjoy a real traditional village fete and a superb exhibition about Diddington and surrounding villages. Dave Dodman had spent hours preparing  wide ranging exhibition including fascinating accounts from people who were born at the Polish camp in Diddington during the  2ww. Even a representative from the Polish embasy came along.

Outside of the village hall there were lotsw of stalls and attractions including the Fenland Light Railway. I didnt risk sitting on one of the carriages but it was fun watching it go up and down the edge of the field.

Great day out… here are some photos.
