Planning and preparation is well underway for this years' Village Festival, so make a date in your diary.

Building on the success of last years' event we aim for it to be even bigger this year.  We hope to start the proceedings with a peal of bells from St. John's Church (maybe rung by locals this year, you might have heard us practising on Wednesday evenings, at the moment it could be a very short peal - watch this space!)


So far attractions already in place are the Dog Show, stalls inside the village hall and outside on the field (as last year we do not charge for charity stalls).  Food and Drink for sale, a Car boot sale on the Sunday morning, display of vintage and unusual vehicles, traction engines, vintage tractors (with a tractor run through the village earlier in the day).

Events again will be announced by our very popular visiting Town Crier.

Again we will be holding the Tug o' War competition on the Sunday, so all you budding musclemen (or women!) time to get practising.  We have also organised more attractions for children this year including: donkey rides, a bouncy castle, hook-a-duck, coconut shy, train rides, Helta Skelta, old fashioned sweet stall and more.

Don't forget to leave space in your diaries for the Saturday night Ceilidh with Pinch o' Snuff. This was a fantastic evening last year and tickets are strictly on a first come, first served basis - get your names down quickly to avoid disappointment.  All we need now is to book the weather!!

As last year there will also be a Prize Draw - This will also be running with the winners being picked on the Sunday at the Festival. Look out for your chance to win fantastic prizes.

Just a brief reminder that all the funds raised at the festival events are for the benefit of local village causes, last year the Church, Women's Institute, Scouts and Village Hall all received money from the Village Ventures.
