Another postcard find – Parham Vicarage 11th July

I found and bought this old postcard over the weekend entitled Parham Vicarage 11th July – it is postmarked 1916, but I have been unable to find a specific reference to a Parham Fete in the old newspapers in this year.

However Fete’s were regularly held at Parham Vicarage and I have found articles from 1918, 1921 and 1927 which give an idea of the numbers attending and money raised.

FWN Parham Fete Saturday 3rd August 1918

Framlingham Weekly News – Saturday 3rd August 1918

FWN Parham Fete Saturday 23 July 1921

Framlingham Weekly News – Saturday 23rd July 1921

FWN Parham Fete Saturday 13 August 1927

Framlingham Weekly News – Saturday 13th August 1927

If anyone has any stories or other old photographs of these Fetes in the village it would be great to hear from you.
