The biggest event in the village’s calendar!
Shevington & District Community Fete takes place every summer – it has been running since 2011, and is a reincarnation of the famous Shevington Carnival of days gone by.
The fete committee work throughout the year to raise funds and organise activities including:
- children’s rides
- children’s entertainment
- stalls throughout the village centre
- community information
- sports and races
- food and drink stalls
- live entertainment
The fete takes place on the recreation ground (Church Lane/Gathurst Lane) and in the surrounding buildings – Shevington Methodist Church, St Annes Parish Rooms and Shevington Youth & Community Centre.

- put up signage and bunting around the village
- help stallholders to unload/load their cars
- marshal on the car parks
- Meet and greet visitors and help them find their way around the site
- make tea/coffee and snacks in the kitchens
- lift chairs, tables etc
- litter pick towards the end of the day
