August in Waterlooville finished with a flourish at the Waterlooville Summer fete. Yes, the drizzle started the day, or was it just low cloud?!, but it did not deter the community who came out to enjoy the entertainment on offer. The Big Noise Samba Band led the way to the Arena with Fit'n'Funky dancing behind. This really started the day with a bang! Numerous acts followed in the arena. Many had a go at playing the drums of the Samba Band and the children loved watching the magic man, Toni Spaghetti and his puppets. The Prime Time band played music from 60's, 70's and 80's which got feet tapping. Not to be forgotten were the soloists and the wind quartet. Really something for everyone. Elsewhere children were entertained with the animals, circus skills, fair, YBus, laser quest...and so the list goes on. Plenty for the adults as well. 90 stalls offered a variety of things to buy, or get information. The dog show must not be forgotten or the horse and carriage, and so much else, too much to mention. All in all a fabulous day, especially as the sun came out at lunchtime. A big thank you must go to the volunteers of the Waterlooville Events Team who pulled the day together. The community of Waterlooville really came together!
