Midsummer Festival

If you enjoyed the Open Gardens, make a note of the Bonfire Society’s next event – the Midsummer Festival on June 17th. There will be an amazing Dog Show with a chance to win a portrait of your dog, Terrier Racing, Beer Festival featuring local beers and ciders, music from Titus and Ricky Adelaide & Friends, a Craft Fayre and many attractions including a miniature railway. In Forge House there will be the now traditional bric-a-brac sale in aid of Chitiwiri, so let’s see if we can make a record amount! If you have been reading Sally’s reports from Chitiwiri in the Parish Magazine, you will know how much good is being done with the money raised – and all from things we don’t need any more! Call Richard on 252108 to arrange for a good time to drop off your donations.
