St John's Flinders FETE AND PET SHOW 2021


As you are aware, due to the continuing Covid 19 pandemic, the Parish Council has approved the decision of the St. John’s Fete and Pet Show convenors (Barbara Richards, Claire Thorn and Mary Iles) to hold a “Virtual Fete and Pet Show” instead of the traditional St. John’s Fete.  This means unfortunately that we won’t be able to have the wonderful attractions of the Book Stall, White Elephant, delicious morning teas, children’s activities and yummy food.  Instead you will be able to participate in many different  ways –

 – Trish Hurley has secured donations of several works of art which will be available to purchase in November. 

These art works are presently on view at ‘Zeega’, 62b Cook Street, Flinders

Please click on the PDF attached to read a brief history of the Fete and details of the artists that have kindly donated works for sale.                               

– for pre Christmas delivery you will be able to order Lions Christmas Cakes and Puddings, St. John’s Fete Aprons and

Tea Towels and Cards

– Christmas floral arrangements

 For the actual Fete Day (23rd January) you will be able to order and pick up on the day Cakes and Biscuits; Craft Items, Jams and Pickles etc.

There will be a raffle and competitions – all on line.

The website for the fete and for purchasing items is http://www.stjohnsflindersfete.com.au/
