St John's Church Fete - June 1969 - Merrow

 St John's Church with the Horse and Groom pub across the road... very handy :-) and today below, nothing changed once again, except the cars and trees of course.
 The St John's Minister opens the Fete.
 Looks as though we bought up big on books - a bearded gentleman conducting the school band while the children on the right dance.
 Then dance the Maypole... I remember how much we enjoyed this outing, it was so English and a perfect experience of living in a small town.  Sort of like something out of 'Vicar of Dibley' maybe.

Glad to see it was Vicar of Dibley and not Midsommer Murders !
