This year’s event will take place on Saturday 21st May, with a wide range of stalls in both the Church Hall and Garden. The church will be looking its best, with exhibitions by local societies and the church organ providing musical accompaniment.
The Top Field will once again host a live band and the steam miniature railway. Last year it was too wet for a Bouncy Castle, but if fine we hope to have one this year. Last but not least, the Harvey’s Beer Tent and barbecue will be in full swing throughout.
The daytime event is from 12.00 until 6.00, and after a bit of a clear up we will proceed to Round Two! This is a dusk display of fireworks generously provided and supervised by our local business sponsors Festive Illuminations.
Most of last year’s stallholders have re-booked, but there may be a couple of outside pitches still available. If you are interested, drop me an e-mail at email@example.com. The pitch fee is £20, and you will need to provide a table. Also wise to have a pop up gazebo or similar in case of wet weather.
The perfect family day out, on your doorstep!
The Rector, Churchwardens and PCC have been looking closely at government guidance with particular reference to our event, which is a mixture of indoor and outdoor activities. On balance, it was felt best not to go ahead with our traditional May event this year, but to proceed in full on a date after all event restrictions are lifted on 21st June.
The new date is set for Saturday 10th July, from 12.00 until 6.00
All of our volunteers, exhibitors and sponsors are still very much ‘on board’ despite the 2020 event having to be cancelled. There will be a very wide range of stalls and exhibits both inside and outside the Church Hall, with a theme of crafts and hobbies.
The church itself will be looking its best, with an organ recital planned for the afternoon
The Claude Jessett Trust will once again be our partners, with Wally the Steam Engine coming down from Tinker’s Park, together with the steam miniature railway and a fairground organ.
At the front of the church we will have a working forge and a potter’s wheel, and up in the Top Field the Harvey’s Beer Tent will be assembled, together with a BBQ. Tea, coffee and cake will as usual be provided in the Church Hall. Our generous local sponsors have provided a range of prizes to be won in the raffle, which will be drawn at 5pm.
As all of the space on site will be taken up with stalls and exhibits, there will be no visitor parking available, but look out for directions to ample free parking further down Church Road.
