Raffle winners (and purveyors of cream teas) celebrate their stellar prize

The sun shone on South Petherton Community Hospital’s annual spectacular – its Harvest Fete and Craft Fair. Smiles were in abundance throughout the afternoon, as friends were reunited in support of the community’s treasured NHS hospital.

Those who visited the Harvest Fete ranged in age from a new born baby to those in their nineties, and as out-patients mingled with in-patients, and families passed the time with hospital staff, it was evident just how valued South Petherton Community Hospital is to the people it serves.
