The Layer Breton TVCA Annual Village Fete

The team at The Hare and Hounds are delighted and honored that they will be hosting The Birch Village fete again this year. It will be held in the paddock on Saturday 19th July.

Last year was a roaring success even after the previous day’s torrential rain and flooding in Colchester; the sun came out and beamed down on the Paddock and all that attended!
