The Gala for this year is adopting a very different format, it is a one day event, with as much entertainment and activities packed into it as we can manage.

It will be held on Saturday, 5 August 2017 and there will be live music all day concluding with the usual Proms in the Park event and Firework finale. The fairground will be available along with their hot food outlets. There will also be a number of attractions for all to use 'free of charge' which includes a Climbing Wall, Caving experience, Archery and Giant Human Hamster Balls. More »

We are also inviting as many charities, organisations and business to have a stall on the day and the booking forms are available to download using the link below or by contacting the Parish Council office to request a form. Spaces are already being booked and so to avoid disappointment, please get your stall booked as soon as possible.
