On the 2nd May 2011 Westonzoyland Carnival Club organised the Village Mayday Fete. With 20 car-boots, 15 trade stalls, 30 Vintages vehicles, the local Emerge dance troop and many other activities the day was a great success.

The Fete was opened at 12:00 by the Mayday King and Queen cutting the ceremonial ribbon. The arrived at the fete with their assistants in Roger Mackey's 1956 Armstrong Siddeley.

This year's Mayday King and Queen were Steven and Lauren and their attendants were Hayden and Jessica all from Westonzoyland Junior school.

The Emerge dance troop comprising over 30 children aged 5 to 12 entertained us with a number of dances to applause from the crowd.

Amongst the 30 or so vintage vehicles at this year's Fete we were fortunate enough to have a 1901 threshing machine. This machine has been owned by the Heard family since it was built in 1901 and is maintained by the Heard brothers who still live in the village.

Thank-you to all who were involved in this year's Fete.
