The best Party yet

Party at the Manor 2012 was the best yet. We reached our aims of bringing the community together, entertaining people of all ages from all over North Devon, showcasing Fremington and raising vital funds for local organisations.

The following all received �200: Lampard Vachell School, Fremington Guides, Fremington Brownies, Instow School PTFA.

St John Ambulance and Pilton School PTFA received �100 each.

May I finish by thanking all 200-plus volunteers, musicians and our main sponsors Contratec Developments Ltd, WS Hockin Transport, Care South, Woolacombe Bay, Kitemare, Fremington Quay Caf�, Graylings, SDS, McBains, Atlas Packaging, Creature Comforts, The Voice, Devon Outdoor & Camping Supplies.
