There will be something for everyone at this year's summer fête at St John's Boxmoor in Hemel Hempstead.

After over a year of social restrictions, and following the very successful outdoor Christmas Carols in December, St John's Boxmoor is organising a summer fête in the church grounds, on Saturday, July 17, from 11am to 4pm.

There will be lots of stalls and a raffle, and you will be able to enjoy Clog Dancing displays and songs from Dacorum Community Choir.

The poor Vicar will be going in the stocks - with wet sponges being thrown at him.

There will be activities for the children too - including rides on a model train and a lunchtime barbecue for everyone to enjoy.

As it is an outdoor event, the following covid restrictions will be in place:

> The general principles of 'Hands. Face. Space', signs will be dotted around reminding people of this

> Masks are not compulsory unless you are in particular close contact

> Money will be handled by only one person per stall to prevent contamination

> Sanitiser will be available on each stall and expected to be used on certain stalls like The Stocks and refreshment area

> Distancing is expected but mindful that we are outdoors

> No Track and Trace required as there is no difference to what we are doing to people visiting the Marlowes.
