RAIN did not put off the crowds at Waterlooville’s third annual summer fete.
Despite torrential downpours, hundreds of people had a fun afternoon of games, shows and food.
It was good enough for the organisers to set a date for next year’s event on the day of the show.
David Crichton, chairman of the Waterlooville Community Forum and chairman of the activities group which organised the event, said work is now being done to complete the plans for the town’s Christmas celebrations.
‘We have had a very successful day,’ he said.
‘Everybody has had a good time. Next year’s event will happen on August 15.’
