  • Fancy dress and scarecrow competitions for which the theme will be - "Space and time travel"
  • Cake competition - space themed cake and cupcakes - no restrictions on type or model of cake. Entries to be on a paper plate with your contact details written on the underside of the plate.  Please indicate if you are happy for your cake to be sold on the day, after having been judged.
