Dickensian Fayre 2016

Saturday December 3rd 2016. 4pm – 7pm.

We are now preparing for this increasingly popular event – come and get in the festive spirit! Booking forms are now available if you wish to have a stall at this event. We are also looking for volunteers who can spare about 1 hour around 9am to help set the marquees up and then again at 7pm to help take them down. If you can do one or the other or both that would be great. We also need help manning both ends of Silver St whilst the event is in progress – for the safety of the visitors to the event. As we are only a small committee – we do rely on your help to put these events on and make them a success!

If you can help at all please get in touch

Carnival 2016

Another successful carnival has now been and gone! The vikings paid us a visit too mark the 950th anniversary of them landing in Riccall, There  was some clay pots making with the children as well as a demonstrating how to use bow & arrows! Thank you to the Riccallish Allsorts for their demonstration of the Riccall Sword Dance. Lots of fun and games was had by all with face painting, balloon modelling and of cause the ever popular pig racing, bouncy castle & slide. Lots of food & drink and the free bus running between the Regen centre and the village. The weather held out until we had managed to get everything away – the some very heavy rain appeared! Thankfully Sunday turned out another lovely day for the picnic!

Thank you to all the stall holders, committee members, helpers, family & friends that all came along and helped and everyone for coming & supporting the event.

If anyone has any suggestions, ideas etc for future carnivals please let us know. Don’t forget to put the Dickensian Fayre in you Diary – Saturday December 3rd!!
