A grand village event at Barnburgh

IT’S Carnival time at Barnburgh on Saturday, with multiple attractions ranging from an Arabic dancer to a fur-nomenal dog show.

The Barnburgh and Harlington Carnival will take place on the Recreation Ground, Church Lane, from 1pm, and will include the judging of produce, vegetables and crafts grown locally, within the village show.

Other attractions include a junior five-a-side football competition, music to jolly things along from the Rockingham Brass Band, fairground rides and stalls and country skills demonstrations such as woodturning and picture framing.

All funds raised on the day will go towards restoring the recreation ground. Possible developments for the future include a skate and bike park, some kind of youth facilities and a toddlers’ play area.
