Masses of help, superb quality donations and delicious refreshments added up to a very successful Spring Jumble Sale – see our jumble sale page for more details.
Great news also of a £1000 donation from Taylor Wimpey to spend on fresh new bunting etc.
Look out for the Festival Raffle Tickets, kindly sponsored once more by Longridge & North Preston Rotarians.
The line up of prizes is impressive, including a stunning Bracelet donated by George Banks Jewellers, the Festival’s £150 cash prize and a Service for your Car at CRC Garage plus many more. Buy your tickets early if you can as it eases pressure on the day and if you would like to join the Ticket Selling Team Andy Thiele would love to hear from you.
Have you seen the appeal for Marshals on our festival website? Please get in touch with PCSO Dave Reid, Alex Johnson, Simon Taylor, Nik Birkby, or PC Chris Banks to sign on. All the details are on the website.
Not too soon to be planning your Decorated Float and Shops & Houses Competition entries. We have the children of St Francis Hill Chapel already registered with “Star Wars” and their group “St Francis’ Little Blossoms” will be our Apple Blossom Children. Pop in and see Jill and Shirley in Goosnargh Chippy for tips and ideas and also look at our Decorated Floats Competition page, as well as our Photo Galleries (especially useful if you are new to all this!).
As you know, the Festival this year is dedicated to the memory of Reg Johnson – let’s do him and all the family proud!
