Pig Racing

The Pig Race Night held in mid-October was a huge success and a lot of fun was had by everyone who attended.     It was an initiative by David Blanchard to raise funds for maintenance within St. Peter’s Church and a massive £1,000 was achieved – it was split £750 to St. Peter’s and £250 was donated to the village hall.    Many thanks to everyone who helped make the evening a success and a special thanks to Sue & Allan Gardner who organised all the food & the racing.
