As a result of the building work taking place in the Village Hall during the summer, the Horticultural Committee has decided to delay this year’s Summer Show. We hope to run an Autumn Show instead on Saturday 4th September, so save some seeds back for later sowings of veg. If you won a perpetual cup in 2019 feel free to keep it until the date above.
We will send out schedules/entry forms with the July newsletter, or you can download them here....
Our village fete is usually held in July, and is well attended by neighbouring parishes. Preparations start at 3am when the fire is lit for the hog roast which is slow cooked and ready to serve at lunchtime. Our Wacky Races are a highlight, with karts judged not only on speed, but character and effort put in to the build.
Other entertainment includes live music from our local band, 3 Pint Rule, a dog show, a bottle stall, the lucky programme, the children's lucky dip, a prize draw, children's games, crown and anchor, darts, cake stall, book stall, along with cream teas and a bar which as the day goes on serves "George Nympton Sangria".
The fireworks and children's Halloween party is on a Saturday close to the 5th November. This is a fun event for all ages: our children's party usually has an entertainer, David Hendy. Our fireworks are set off to music, and afterwards there is live music and a bar in the hall, with refreshments served for all to enjoy.
