Rain can’t dampen spirits at the Miranda House summer fete

Despite the showers, the Royal Wootton Bassett community was out in force this weekend to support the annual summer fete hosted by local care home Miranda House.

Entertainment on the day included some superb irish dancing, a bouncy castle provided by Smiley Inflatables, ‘Hook the duck’, a raffle, tombola, bric-a-brac, homemade cakes and the homemade sausages donated by Hinton Marsh Farm, which proved very popular on the barbeque.

Miranda House Manager, Pat Shaw expressed her gratitude to everyone who supported the event:

‘Everyone has had a great time today! It is always wonderful when the community comes together to support these events – it is important aspect of life here at Miranda House that our residents are able to maintain an active role in the wider community.

We would like to send a warm and sincere thank you to everyone that helped to organise the summer fete and the local businesses who kindly donated to make the day such a success. We raised £520 from the stalls and along with some very generous donations we have raised a grand total of £640 to contribute to some fantastic trips and activities for the residents!’
