ANNUAL ONION SHOW
We have a busy couple of months coming up starting with the Onion Show on Sunday 6th October in the Kings Arms. With classes for all ages it’s times to get crafting and thinking about what baking you can do on the day to enter in to the show. Once judging has finished the fun begins with a bouncy castle and child’s entertainer to keep the little ones amused during the auction. If anyone can donate to the raffle or the auction could you please contact Carl Jackson or Neil Shaw as all donations are gratefully appreciated. This is an event that helps fund the fireworks display and the children’s Christmas parties as well as other amazing charities.

We organise events for the children of the village and the organisation of the MUGA which is an area for all the community to enjoy and are currently looking for people to take up roles on the committee so we hope to see some new faces on the night.
