The Good Hope Fete is an annual event that takes place each year at the Good Hope Hospital and is a fun filled day of fabulous food, activities and community spirit. This year the Good Hope Hospital is calling for Suttonians to come along on Saturday September 14th and take part in the lively community fete to make sure that it is just as much a day to remember as last year’s was.
For 2013, the Good Hope Fete has an exciting schedule of live demonstrations, music and dancing, as well as the opportunity to get to know the hospital and its staff through tours of the newly refurbished theatres and A&E. There will be free health checks provided for those who want a quick check up and the chance to ‘meet the midwives,’ as well as a teddy bear’s hospital for teddies in need a bit of TLC.
On the day there will be ‘Come Dine With Me’ style food tasting, mouthwatering cream teas, as well as a dog show, bouncy castle, face painting and plenty of other activities for kids (and big kids) to enjoy. For those with an appetite the hospital will be hosting a wide range of food outlets and some great stalls where you can browse for purchases from local traders and craft organisations. This year there will also be a raffle (with tickets available until 2.30pm) with some fabulous prizes, including an i-pad, meal vouchers for a local restaurant, Next vouchers and lots more besides.
There are numerous local traders, charities and craft organisations supporting the event and if you’re interested in setting up a stall at the Good Hope Fete then there is still time! The Good Hope Fete is free for everyone to attend and promises to be a thoroughly fun family day out.
As Susan Moore, Good Hope managing director, said: “The fete was an overwhelming success last year and we are keen to make it an annual event and open our doors for the community to enjoy whilst learning a little more about the Hospital. I would encourage anyone who would like to get involved by holding a stall at the event to get in touch.”

See you on September 14th!
