Kew Green will be transformed for a day of fun in the sun and fundraising this weekend.

Richmond and Twickenham Times:

Fun times: Head down this Saturday for lots of fun

Now in its sixth year, the Kew Midsummer Fete will see a Victorian fairground, craft stalls, a food court and a dog show comes to the open space a stones throw from the riverside on Saturday, June 20.

Last year, the fete raised £15,000 for charity and the organisers hope to add substantial funds to the £50,000 raised in the past six years.

Michael Glazebrook, chairman of the fete committee, said: "We have had a great response from stall holders, sponsors and supporters now the fete is truly established as a really enjoyable fun day out with funds going to great causes.

"Our thanks to all the volunteers who are once again making it happen and also to our sponsors Fuller’s, Richmond Vets, Taylor Wimpey, Dexters, Honda Chiswick and Kew Park Rangers."

Entry is free and the fete runs from 11am to 6pm.
