There will be a wide range of family-friendly stalls and activities to enjoy and the weather looks like it will be sunny and dry.

Stalls and events will be set up throughout the village and neighbouring fields. 

There will be a cake stall, book stall, bouncy castle, tombola, ice - creams and even small animals and ferret racing.

Classic cars will be on display and the church will host a Flower Festival.
