Nearly a year to the day from starting our first innocent drinks blog (see below) we have just opened the virtual doors to our second blog, the innocent village fete blog. You'll be able to keep up to date with all things fete via the new little widget in the right hand column of this blog, by checking back regularly at the blog itself or by subscribing to its RSS feed if you're really fancy.

We hope you enjoy it.

This year we're holding the first ever innocent village fete. So, we thought it might be nice to spend some time learning about how fetes are done from the experts.

This Saturday, our tour began in a lovely village called Chilton Foliat.
