Exciting plans are afoot for a huge new village show in Stickney – offering animal attractions, fun races, games and displays.
The free event, to take place on Saturday, July 16, will offer real animal magic in the form of giant tortoises, falconry displays, reptiles and a dog show and terrier race.
There are also plans for up to 40 craft stalls – among others selling a variety of goods, plus food and drink.
Isabel Dodds, of the organising committee, said excitement was already building for the event.
“Everyone is really excited and enthusiastic about it so we really hope people support it by coming along on the day,” she said. “We have had businesses from near and far who have sponsored it, which helps it to be a free day out for all. Our main sponsor is Beeswax of Lincoln, who have been fantastic.
“We would welcome anyone who wishes to volunteer help on the day – or any crafters and traders who want to have a stall – to get in touch.”
The show will be held in the grounds of William Lovell Academy, in Main Road, from 10am-5pm.
Other activities and displays already planned for the day include Scalextric racing, a ukulele band, brass band, vintage vehicles, gymnastics and “Olympic” games for primary schools.For children, there is already a plethora of activities, including a surfing simulator, a 50-ft assault course, bungee run, circus skills, magic show, swing boats, face-painting and more.
The show will build on last year’s midsummer festival, promising to be bigger and better than ever.
Mrs Dodds added: “The committee is working really hard to get as many attractions as we can. We have also been holding monthly fundraisers to help fund the show.”
