Abbotts Ann Fete will be held on Saturday 5th September. Because of the ongoing impact of COVID 19 this year’s Fete will mostly be on Zoom with some socially distanced activities also taking place.

Scarecrow Competition

New to the Abbotts Ann fete this year is the scarecrow competition and our themes are Key Workers, Funniest and Lookalikes. There is no age limit so get creative and get everyone in your household to help. As this is the first year we’ve tried this we want lots of entries!

Pet Show

Any type of animal can be entered into the Abbotts Ann online pet show. It could be cats, dogs, horses, donkeys, birds, hamsters, snakes or other reptiles, or even a stick insect. All animals are welcome- there are 12 different categories so something for everyone! To enter you just need to send in a photo or a video. The judging will be on line via Zoom at 2pm.
