Volunteers from The Rowans Hospice are preparing for their biggest ever summer fete.

The annual event, which will take place on Sunday, September 6 on Purbrook Heath opposite the hospice, will have something on offer for everyone.

There will be entertainment including music, dancing and a dog show, as well as more than 60 stalls selling homemade produce and crafts.

For the younger members of the family, there will be plenty of games and competitions to take part in, along with face painting and children’s rides.

The fete will officially be opened by Mayor of Havant, councillor Leah Turner at 1pm.

Families can take part in The Rowans Hospice grand summer draw, which has 
a first prize of £1,000 
Thomas Cook holiday vouchers.

There will also be a range of vintage cars on display.

Events fundraiser at The Rowans, Karen Kay, said: ‘This event is a lovely day out for all the family and, come rain or shine, the atmosphere is amazing.

‘We have fantastic support from the local community, and hope that they will come along to this event to 
help raise funds for the hospice.

‘I like to thank all our volunteers who help run the fete; without their dedication and enthusiasm, we would not be able to organise such a wonderful event.’
