Little Shelford fun week-endSept 17-19 2021 

The Annual Village Weekend is back on Friday 17th to Sunday 19th September 2021

Following the announcement of the Government unlocking plans in February, they are increasingly confident the Village weekend will go ahead and give us our first Village get together for two years. So, hold the date in your diaries and remember, there is something over the weekend for every age group. To keep fully up to date follow them on Instagram, search on Little.Shelford and look out for the Village Sign and also look regularly at the Village website.

Friday 17th September 7.30 pm – Village Get Together and Dance.

Our first Village get together for two years, with a different feel to encourage maximum attendance. No theme and no fancy dress, a relaxed evening for adults (over 18’s) in the big Marquee on the Wale with dancing, a bar and food available for purchase from well-known local pop-up street vendors Steak & Honor and Waffle & Co. Ticket prices yet to be set but will be kept as low as possible.

Saturday 18th September – 1pm Village Fair and Show plus 5.30 pm Beer Festival.

The Village Fair will have something for every age group including stalls, BBQ, family games, animal exhibition, Body Blast sessions, raffles, bar and nature tours around the Wale. More details of all the events of the afternoon will be released as they are booked.

The Village Show we are looking forward to seeing your photos of local wildlife, as well as lockdown lunacy comedy shots, home grown vegetables of all shapes and sizes and flowers. Categories will be open for old and young alike, from arrangements of flowers, baking triumphs and creative crafts, we hope we will have included a category for everyone to have a go. So, start planting now and get that camera out, and remember it is a Just for Fun Village Show.

In the evening The Navigator will be hosting their Beer Festival with quality local Ales.

Sunday 19th September – Harvest Celebration, History Walk and Picnic.

All Saints Harvest Celebration 11am, all ages welcome, there will be songs and celebration for Harvest in the Marquee and gifts will be collected for Jimmy’s night shelter. Followed by tea, coffee, cake and conversation.

Village History Walk 
12 noon starting at the Wale. A 75 minute walk including the Village Pump and All Saints Church and Churchyard. Led by local residents with a history flair!

Picnic from 1pm on the Wale. Bring your picnic, family and friends to a relaxed afternoon in late summer sun!

Our aim for the Village weekend in 2021 is simply to get the Village together safely to have fun after a challenging 18 months. If we do make any surplus, we will be making our primary donations to Shelford School and the “Save the Wale” Recreation Ground fund. So, having fun and supporting local causes.

The weekend committee is now busy planning but there is still time for the Village Community to come up with ideas and suggestions for the weekend. So, if you have thoughts, or comments please e-mail their LSEC secretary, Jo Boyle, joboyle780@gmail.com with your ideas.

The LSCE committee is also very welcoming of new members and also welcome those who want to volunteer to help over the weekend itself, even if you don’t have time to join the committee. Please contact Jo if you would like to contribute in any way.
