Hallowe’en Disco

A massive thank you to Alex Johnson and his team, who could not have put more effort into the success of the Festival’s Hallowe’en Disco.

Young revellers and their families packed the Village Hall and a huge variety of fantastic costumes and DJ Colin’s stage set & lighting completed the amazing transformation.

Hot Dogs & Fries fresh from the fryer, Curry & Rice and a mountain of fabulous spooky cakes kept the kitchen team working flat out and the evening flew by.

Special thanks to Abbie Landless (7!) who was our meet and greet – not so scary – witch in the foyer all evening. Abbie, you really helped put the youngest children at ease.

Thank you for all your donations of cakes & prizes – a really great night was had by all!

Next up??

We will be selecting our Festival Queen 2018 at a concert to be attended by the Mayor & Mayoress of the City of Preston. The event will begin at 1pm on Sunday 4th February and all of our local Primary Schools will be taking part.

Autumn Jumble Sale

The Autumn jumble sale raised a fabulous £1489.38

Once more it was down to the generosity of the local community that goods donated proved attractive to the buyers and we are particularly grateful to all who gave up their Saturday to help us with the selling and clearing. We counted 20 non- committee members working on the various stalls and we are immensely grateful – we could not do it without you! You may have noticed a team of young Police Cadets working with us. They were brought along by PC Chris Banks and did a splendid job assisting in all sorts of ways. Thanks also to Festival Queens Niamh & Roisin, Beth and young Thomas for all your help.
