A VILLAGE fete near Tenbury will be opened by The Gruffalo.

The best way to find out what this is all about will be to get along to the Eastham Fete.

It takes place on Sunday (August 17) and will be officially opened by The Gruffalo at 1.30pm.

Entries for the dog show, which will be held in the centre of the green, will be taken from 1pm.

Music will be provided by a saxophone quartet and there will be a food court offering a barbecue, a bar, afternoon tea and ice creams.

As well as a tombola and grand prize draw, there will be the usual games and stalls around the green.

Entry and car parking are free but entry to the Memorial Hall to see the flower and produce show will cost 50p.
