A date for 2019 Adel Fete & Open Day

Sunday, 9th June 2019 from 12.00 noon until 5.00pm.

It is the third year of this special event in the splendid setting of the Adel War Memorial Association’s grounds and Halls. The purpose is to showcase the many and varied sporting and social activities provided in the heart of Adel Village.

Helen Murray, Club Secretary and Chairman of the Summer Fete Committee said ” The aim is to raise our profile with the local community through events that encourage active participation and are family oriented and fun. There will be “Show and have a go” or coaching sessions, for all the family, in such sports as Archery, Badminton, Bowls, Cricket, Football, Hockey, Lacrosse and Tennis.”

John Hartley from the Adel Neighbourhood Forum said “This is a direct and positive response to those residents who expressed interest in finding out more about such activities in our area. This event will provide local families with hands on experience with the sports on offer”.

At a time when there are serious concerns with unhealthy life styles the Association is keen to promote active participation at any age. Your support will be crucial to achieve that aim.

Adel Fete will be held at Adel War Memorial Hall
