Previous Events

The 17&18th June 2017
A Busy Weekend

Open to the general public on Saturday, and for the Big Lunch with our friends from the local communities on Sunday. Student art from Whitley Academy remained in place for the whole weekend

The Open Day on the 17th was rather quiet, but those that came were enthralled and very interested.

Sunday was, by contrast, very well attended, with some interesting visitors including a BBC Cov and Warwick Radio presenter broadcasting live from the event.

It was very evident that the children enjoyed themselves, paticularly it appears when they were throwing wet sponges at the vicar in the stocks.

A team from E-on came along a few days prior to an Open Day (July 9th) and tidied up the back garden. They also managed to clear a considerable growth of ivy at the back of the bowling green to reveal the wall that had been hidden there.
