Balloon release in Misterton

The Great Misterton Balloon Release will take place outside All Saints’ Church on Saturday, November 5.

People are invited to send messages to their angel to help raise funds for the church which has been repeatedly targeted by lead thieves, incurring a £33,000 repair bill.

Any personal message can be sent - such as ‘good luck’ or ‘miss you’ - and these will be tied to individual balloons to be released from a huge net at 3pm.

Messages cost £1 with all money going to the roof appeal.

Visitors are welcome from 10am and refreshments will also be sold.
