Feast Sports - July 8th

There will be a coffee morning held by the Feast Sports group on May  13th to raise  funds for this remarkable annual event.

Street Market - July 15th

Applications are available for stalls for the Street Market from our website or by contacting us directly. Due to the expected update of the play equipment on the Governors’ field we are expecting to have less space on the field and aim to make better use of the Four Bells’ Carpark.  We would also be grateful to hear from anyone able to donate raffle prizes for this popular event as this one of our main fundraising activities.
