The weather gods will be smiling on the St David’s Uniting Church fete tomorrow.

Sunny conditions and temperatures into the mid-20s are forecast for the Newtown church’s annual fundraiser.

Alison Lawson said the committee decided to hold some of the fete outside to comply with COVID protocols and that the weather forecast was “looking good”.

“People are more cautious with covid so we decide to hold some of it outside,” she said.

“It’s not a huge fete, just an opportunity for fellowship and a social time to get people together.”

Youngsters from Impetus Dance will entertain the crowd with a dance display at 10.30am.

The usual stalls, trash and treasure, books, sausage sizzle and coffee van will be operating.

The fete begins at 10am at St David’s Uniting Church in Newton on the corner of Aphrasia and Talbot streets.
