Please Help!


We will need help in the run-up to the day, to prepare the site and putting up tents on the Thursday and Friday and then taking it all down again on Sunday morning from 10 am.


Update - 5 July 2017


For those of you that are available on Thursday afternoon we are aiming to start setting up the fete at 3.00pm at the Arkwright Hall, moving the tents to Mellors Lane park straight after. We should be there until 7pm at least. Come down and see if we can remember which tent goes where.


Someone has to do the work for us all to have a great time.  Can you be part of that effort and help spread the load?  Please contact Carole (01332 880673 or by email - click here) with offers of help.
