Leading residential developer Bellway has been confirmed as this year’s sponsor of the hugely popular Wistaston Village Fete which takes place on Saturday 15 June at Wistaston Church Academy.

With Kingfisher Reach, its highly sought after development of three and four bedroom new build homes, located on Wistaston Green Road, not too far from the fete showground on Wistaston Church Lane, Bellway was the obvious partner for this year’s event.


Taking place over the course of one day, the Wistaston Fete is a key date in the local calendar that is supported and enjoyed by the entire community.


Festivities begin with a local street parade to include local Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Rainbows, Brownies and Guides groups which is followed by a procession from the retiring Rose Queen and her attendants who pass the crown to the new Rose Queen and her team.


More than 30 stalls representing local organisations and charities come together, and are complemented by arena acts, the Primary School Choir and refreshments to provide a fun-filled and entertaining family day out.


One of the many highlights of the day is the hotly-contested fancy dress competition; Bellway has provided prizes for this year’s competition which sees locals compete for star prizes in both the adults and children’s categories.


Chairman of the Wistaston Community Council, Dane Chaplow, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Bellway on board as a sponsor for this year’s event.  Without sponsors, our Fete costs would be higher and we could not provide the monies to local deserving causes, which is the Council’s remit, and we are hugely grateful to them for their support.”


Sales director at Bellway, Jenny Bell, added: “We are always happy to support the communities in which we build and have been warmly welcomed in Wistaston which is a beautiful village with very friendly residents and wonderful calendar of popular local events.  We’re really looking forward to the Rose Queen and Fete event and will have a presence in the Wistaston Community Council tent.”
