Category Sponsorship

We will put sponsoring company details on the table with the category being sponsored, you can give us leaflets and business cards for people to help themselves to - you don't have to be there on the day - these can be delivered to us before the Fete and we will display them for you. If you are there, hopefully we can take a photograph of you awarding the prizes for your class. It is £20 per class - excellent value for raising your profile with thousands of local people, great value advertising, great fun and you are supporting the local community!
