Created and Maintained by MVP
From the Valleys of Mid Wales, the Welsh Axemen bring the skill and strength of Axe Racing…….. What’s that?” I hear you say! Come along and find out, cheer for your favourite Axe Man (who knew you had one). These guys are pretty nifty with a chainsaw too, but don’t try these things at home!
The Reading Scottish Pipe Band made such a spectacular debut last year and we just had to get them back.
We have the usual big activities, Zorbs and Bungees but what about driving your own Mini Tank or Combat Archery, when we saw these we just couldn’t resist bringing them to Fun Day.
This year we have added to our Catering partners, so even more great food (but with shorter queues!)…. But best of all come for the day, soak up the atmosphere, enjoy the Tea & cakes, Sausages, Hog Roast and visit our own “Pop up Pub”
This year we have a whole set of new pages to help you find out all the things about how to get involved in the Fun Day - whether you want to have a Market Row Stall, be a sponsor, perform in the Arena, bring your Classic Car, Volunteer to help or anything else! To access this whole new section click on the Fun Day Logo to the left!
AND IN THE EVENING....
Christian Aid Collection
We would like to thank everyone in Mortimer who received envelopes through their doors and returned them to the various collectors during Christian Aid Week. Also, a very big thank you to the various collectors who take on the job each year - it can be gruelling and tough work, particularly when it is pouring with rain. However, this year we were greatly encouraged by raising £1,835, the most collected for several years. If you did not receive an envelope and would like to contribute next year, or even help to deliver envelopes through doors during Christian Aid week please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you. Richard, Val and Deborah
Mortimer Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP)
