Summer Fete 2023

Saturday 1 July 2022

Well done to everyone at St Matthew’s who helped in any way to make the 2023 Summer Fete on Saturday 1 July the most successful so far.

With last minute donations still trickling in it looks like we may hit the £4,000 mark. That’s a real achievement considering our family fun day coincided with the council-sponsored Northampton Festival on the Racecourse. And it means we raised £300 more than last year at a time of financial squeeze.

People were queueing to get in – some even arrived two hours before the fete opened and tried to buy items from our bric-a-brac stall, and the sunshine certainly helped.

The Folk Ensemble from Northampton School for Boys provided a wonderful afternoon of music, while our Noah’s Ark Trail attracted many families with children to the church itself. Many hadn’t been inside before and were amazed by its beauty.

It’s a pity the Fire Brigade team couldn’t stay longer due to an emergency, but we hope they’ll be back next year.

All in all, it was a fun afternoon and we achieved our greatest goal – bringing the community together and showing them everything St Matthew’s proudly has to offer.

Please find below a selection of photos.
