Feast Sports

The ever popular Woodborough's annual Feast Sports took place on Saturday 8th July - and you can see all of our 117 photographs from the day above.

The weather was kind and there was a great turn-out for this traditional and loved event, with children, parents and grand-parents all enjoying a great afternoon's entertainment.

In these times of high tech entertainment, I'm always amazed just how much fun is had from simple pleasures such as running, slow bike and wheelbarrow racing, sack races, and "walking the dog".

To keep up the energy levels, every child received a free afternoon tea in the village hall.

The event always finishes with the adults' tug of war, which is then taken over by the children. In fact the children had to persuaded to let go of the rope and to go home after what was evidently an immensely enjoyable afternoon!

Congratulations are due to the Feast Sports Committee and helpers who not only organised the event on the day, but also raised the money to pay for it!
