Effingham Village Summer Fete 2010
The Summer Fete of 2010 took place on the afternoon of Saturday June 26th, and was organized by the Rotary Club of Bookham and Horsley.
The Effingham Local History Group took advantage of this event to make its first public presentation, by way of a stall serving to introduce the group and to advertise the forthcoming Effingham Commoners' Day event. This page shows some photos of the Fete, our stall and the items we displayed there.
