PEOPLE in Waterlooville are pulling out all the stops to ensure their annual fete is packed with fun.

The fete on Saturday will include a marching band, dancers, a bouncy castle and face painting.

The event will be attended by the Mayor and Mayoress of Havant borough at 10.30am.

There will also be a mini Olympics for children to take part in.

Every child that takes part will receive a certificate.

A popular activity is set to be the smoothie bike, where families can blend their own smoothies through pedal power.

There will be a fire engine for people to have a look at.

Girls from Classique School of Dance will be performing, as well as local judo and karate demonstrations.

Waterlooville councillor Ray Bastin will be overseeing the event as his alter ego, Arnold the circus ringmaster.

Cllr Bastin said: ‘There will be an exciting merry-go-round which is hand operated and was originally built in 1850 but the owner has fully restored the ride and it will be making an appearance at the fete.

‘Last year we had one girl doing the face painting but because it was so popular we’ve hired six face painters this year.’

The fete takes place from 10am to 4pm at Jubilee Park, off Rowlands Avenue, Waterlooville.
