Minting and Gautby Floral Festival Weekend, Plant Sale & Open Farm on Sunday – June 10 and 11 2017 FLORAL FESTIVAL PROGRAMME
With many keen gardeners, lots of history and two lovely churches, our two little villages are holding a Floral Festival on the weekend of June 10 and 11, to raise funds for both churches and Gautby Village Hall.
The churches will be decorated with flower arrangements around the theme of “Pastimes and Hobbies in the Countryside” and it is hoped that all of our flowers and foliage will come from our gardens (weather permitting). Each day starts off at Minting Village Hall at 10:30 where morning coffee, home-made cakes, light lunches (including Ploughman’s and Pulled Pork) and afternoon teas will be served and where visitors can pick up a programme, each day closes at 4:30pm
In addition, in the village hall, a small display of local archeological finds will be of added interest on both days. The welcoming village hall bar will also be open with its display of Heritage Photographs. Visitors will also be able to buy raffle tickets with the top prize being a Dyson Animal Vacuum cleaner.
On Saturday, there will be a PLANT SALE at the village hall and the MR Ukulele Duo will perform in each church. On Sunday, the popular Minting Community Choir will be performing in both churches and the award-winning Minting Park Farm in Gautby will be open as part of Open Farm Sunday.
So, on the Sunday, you could make a day of it and visit Minting Park Farm in Gautby and visit the churches and village hall too!
This event is a fundraiser for the churches and Gautby Village Hall.
