Taddington Produce Show 2018

The 2018 Taddington Produce Show will be held on Sunday 2 September in Taddington Village Institute (Main Street, Taddington, SK17 9UD).

Please bring entries down to the Institute between 9:30 and 11:30.
The judges will then do their bit before we open up at 2:00 for you to see the display and find out the results. Don’t worry if your veg and flowers aren’t as amazing as usual this year – everybody’s in the same boat and … it’s the taking part that counts!

There will be hot drinks and cakes available between 2:00 and 4:00 and of course the RAFFLE.
Proceeds from the raffle go towards the flowers around the village and at the Institute.

Raffle prizes include:
Filled planter (Calver Sough Garden Centre)

Wells Week “Walkies” & BBQ

A reminder that the first Wells Week walk will take place on Monday 20th August to raise money for Wells Week. Please come along and bring your dog, your children and your friends! All ages and abilities welcome.

We’ll meet in the churchyard at 18:00 and start the walk at 18:30. We’ll be walking on fairly flat (as flat as Taddington allows), stock free footpaths and bridleways in the countryside around the village. There will be a short (about 45 minutes) and longer (an hour or so) route to choose from. The longer walk will be led by our local historian who will provide lots of local historical information and tales.

The walk will be followed by a BBQ in the churchyard, with burger, salads and a glass of Pimms, beer or a soft drink included in the ticket price which is £5 for adults, £2.50 for children (under 16) and £12.00 for a family ticket (2 adults and 2 children).

All welcome – you don’t even need a dog!

Pre-booking or purchasing tickets in advance is not required but if you are planning to come on the walk, or even just considering it, please let us know as it will really help us with the food and drink requirements.

All proceeds to the Well Dressing fund.

Lanes Races 2018

A reminder that the Lanes Race will take place as usual on Tuesday the 21st of August. The race starts from the Institute at 7:00 pm, so do come down to see the runners off or cheer them on towards the end, or both – we expect the fastest runners back at the Institute before 7:30, so they will make their appearance in Town End at the bottom of The Gates/The Old George/Hades Lane before then! Or you might catch glimpse of them near High Mere some time in between.

Food (beef chilli and a couple of veggie options) will be available for everybody (runners and spectators) from 7:00.

Registration for runners is from 6:30 – the Institute will be open from 6:15.

Thank you for supporting this Taddington tradition.

UPDATE: A record number of entrants, in recent memory anyway! Well done all.
