Best Kept Village:
Well we are back in the running for the Best Kept Village! We were successful in getting through to the second round of the competition and the judging for that has now finished. We expect to hear any day whether we have won our sector. If we are successful then the final round of judging takes place in August when winners of each sector battle it out for ‘Best in Notts.’
We all had a wonderful day! The weather was a little temperamental and some of us, and the dogs, got a little damp but the whole event was lovely. A little smaller than usual despite the extra advertising but there was a good range of stalls with a mix of the traditional and the new. We didn’t have any music playing this year. Did you notice? Would you prefer music? Let us know.
Many thanks to all who helped to make the day a success. The dog show is now an established part of the day. Well done to all the very well behaved dogs who entered into the competition with their owners. Thanks go to our judge Pam Bennett. Thanks also go to the Bride and Groom who were getting married at St. Swithun’s when our commentary of the dog show apparently was broadcast in church by their own PA system!
We are particularly grateful for the support shown by the providers of our raffle prizes. See our list of prizes and winners.
Food event at the Nags Head : August 12th
We are trying a new approach to this event by starting earlier, at 4pm and having a barbeque and raffle. The Nags Head will be participating in entertainment and fundraising of their own, for their nominated charity. Pease come along and join in the fun. Watch out for more details at The Nags and on posters around the village.
