First of all, an apology to those that emailed in asking about the “Brass on the Grass.” As you will no doubt now know it was held last Saturday 6th July. There wasn’t a great deal of warning (about 10 days we think) but the signs went up in the Village Green and Oxcroft Way. A good time was had by all, as far as we can tell.
Hopefully the Parish Council (who ever they are) will announce a date early next year so we can all plan to be there.
Harthill Carnival Society have emailed in asking if we can help out with the following:
HARTHILL CARNIVAL AND SHOW – Saturday 13th of July 2013
For a fun filled day out for all the family come along to this year’s Carnival, on Saturday 13th July. Carnival starts with the Shire Horse judging at 12 noon and the parade through the village at 12.15pm. The theme for the parade is ‘Anything Goes’ and with cash prizes for the top three floats donated by JH Skepper & Son Ltd we look forward to seeing an amazing parade with colourful floats and lots of happy faces.
New for this year is football freestyler – Dan Magness, children’s entertainer – Madam Zucchini, Phoenix Falconry, mini farm with lots of animals, Barlborough Bears Cheer and Dance and a flypast by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
There will be the usual stalls, refreshments and fairground rides of all sizes with something for all ages and a fun dog show organised by Thornberry Animal Sanctuary.
All this plus the usual favourites of vintage tractors and shire horses which make this a great day out for all the family.
