Summer Fete – Friends of Abergele Hospital

On Saturday the 21st June 2014, the League of Friends of Abergele Hospital are holding their annual summer fete. Bob Pearson of the Friends has written with details:

“It is to be opened by Darren Millar A.M. at 2pm in the hospital grounds.   Many different stalls will be there including tombola, bric-a-brac, plants, books, children’s toys, cakes, popcorn and many others.   A police dog handler and armed responce officer will be attending to talk to members of the public about their roles.  The lifeboat will be represented,  a display of childres dancing, the Cantorion Choir and the Rhyl Junior Silver Band.”

The Mayor of Abergele, Brian Roberts, will be drawing the raffle. There will also be entertainment from Bro Aled School and the Joy Cournock school of dancing. There will be a children’s play bus and the Red Cross will be in attendance. (Source: Iolo Facebook page)

I have fond childhood memories of going to the annual summer garden fete at the hospital in Abergele. Back in the 60s we called it the Chest Hospital Fete or the Sanny Fete. From what I hear from Bob and his hard-working co-workers at the Friends, this year’s revival of an old tradition promises to be a real gem.
