Grassmoor Funday 7th July


Blessed with wonderful weather Grassmoor Funday was very well received and supported by the local community. 

There were lots of different things to try with over 20 stalls to visit. 

The events committee had provided free activities including face painting, a bouncy castle and Extreme Wheels for the younger community members to enjoy. 

In addition, White Post farm provided a very ‘hands-on’ experience with a variety of animals for all the family to enjoy.  At very short notice a local dance troupe stepped in to entertain everyone with their amazing show. 

A huge thank you to everyone who attended and to all the volunteers who helped with organising, setting up and clearing away, without whom, this event would not have been possible.

A great example of the community spirit that exists in Grassmoor!    

Hasland Gala Sunday 10th June 2018

Gala 415

Hasland Gala was blessed with wonderful weather and a great family atmosphere this June. Many visitors chose to bring picnics and blankets whilst the hot food on offer outside and refreshments served indoor at the Village Hall were also well populated. Entertainment with a 1940s theme was provided by one of the singers from the excellent Daisy Belles group and there was a great mix of stalls offering goods to buy, useful information and things to try . There was also plenty to entertain the children such as the fairground attractions,climbing wall, heritage cars, Army and the Fire Service.  Congratulations to Friends of Eastwood Park organising committee who provided such a lovely day for those visitors both local and further afield.
