On the 3rd of July 1999, there was the St James' Church & Community Fete, held at Broughton Hall. A nice day, especially considering the enormous thunderstorm early in the morning.

There was a bouncy slide for the children:

There were lots of stalls selling cakes, plants, books and everything else - here's a view of some of them:

Waterbeach Brass Band played for us:

And if you weren't sitting next to the band, or near the refreshments, you could sit on the grass:

Steve Clarke was manning the Barbecue, while the kids were all over the Swaffham Bulbeck Fire Engine:

And the Firemen finally gave the kids just what they wanted:
