A Community Fete will be held on the grounds of Exmouth's Holy Trinity Church on Saturday, July 27, as part of the church's 200th anniversary celebrations.

Holy Trinity was originally built as a Chapel of Ease for the main parish church of St Margaret and St Andrew at Littleham, but the growing community in Exmouth eventually saw it evolve into a parish church.

The fete, taking place from 11am until 3pm, will offer traditional village games, stalls, refreshments, and even a zip wire ride from the top of the tower for teddy bears purchased at the event.

The Exmouth mayor, Joe Whibley, will officially open the event at 11am.

The church is also organising a flower festival between July 26 and 28, in addition to a community art competition, details of which can be found here.

Holy Trinity currently serves a lively Anglican congregation and also hosts numerous community functions such as concerts and film nights. It is also home to groups including a memory café, parent and toddlers, Brownies and Rainbows.

The Rev Steve Jones, the rector of Holy Trinity Church, said: "Holy Trinity has faithfully served at the heart of the Exmouth community for the last 200 years, and we want, this year, to take the chance to celebrate what this building has meant to the community and think of the ways it can continue to meet the needs of local people in the years ahead."
