Fete raises �2,700 for Exmouth Hospital

Crowds turned out in force to the 51st annual Exmouth Hospital fete, raising �2,700.

Organised by the League of Friends, the event is the hospital’s main fund-raiser of the year, and was held in the hospital grounds.

Visitors had the choice of dozens of stalls selling books, cakes, bric-a-brac and games, with the Exmouth Town Concert Band providing the music throughout the afternoon.

Once again, the Withycombe WI provided tea and cakes on the lawn, while Exe Trail Ices supplied ice creams.

John Tansley, of Exmouth Farmers Market, provided and erected the awnings at the fete.
