This annual event which takes place on the August Bank Holiday weekend has been running for several years now. it is well attended with over 20,000 people there for the 3 days. The organisers are keen to maintain a clean and environmental image for the festival and have invited the local villages to take advantage of a free space on the site to run a food and drink stall to raise funds for village organisations.
If successful this will be a long-term arrangement and over the coming years it should be possible for many village organisations to benefit from the stall. This first year Valerie is coordinating the Clipston involvement on behalf of the Church together with the Clipston Courier.
As you may imagine the logistics, especially in the first year are massive and this is almost a full-time job for the organisers at this time.
The benefits from all the hard work should be significant and will help us in our efforts to improve the Church in all its aspects.
