Iden Fete was very successful again this year, thanks to our wonderful team of helpers, and we were very pleased to be able to donate £4,000, split equally between the Village Hall and Pavilion as usual.

There remained a smaller sum available for donation to worthy causes in Iden, and £300 has already been donated towards the Iden Seniors Christmas Lunch.
