New Village Fete Planning Team

As the Village Fete is our largest fundraiser, and the most challenging to organise, we are now looking for our Fete Planning Team.

As part of the Fete Planning Team, you can have your say, bring your knowledge and expertise, get hands on, or simply help with administration – whatever role you can bring will be greatly appreciated!!!

You don’t have to be a Pentridge or Woodyates resident to get involved.

We would like to get started with our first Fete Planning Team meeting taking place on January 24th, at 7pm in Pentridge Village Hall.

If you are interested in getting involved with the Village Fete, please some along to the meeting. If you can’t make this meeting but would like to be involved, please send us an email to
