Arnesby May Fayre 2018.
Following an open village meeting, a survey was carried out to find what villagers think about the May Fayre - specifically, should we hold another Fayre in 2018 and if so, should we change the format.
The survey team have now produced their report and they found overwhelming support for the Fayre to continue in 2018. The organising committee has decided that the Fayre will be held on Bank Holiday Monday May 28th.
The report makes several recommendations which the organisers will try to incorporate into the event. Read the report here» (pdf 640kb)
Promises Auction 2017
The latest Promises Auction, again organised by Sue Spriggs, was held in the village hall in September. Just over £2,000 was bid for over 100 lots and after costs - an excellent buffet put on by the Baptist Church and a donation to the Legs for Africa charity - a profit of £1,646 was made. This was split evenly between St Peter's Church, the Baptist Church, LOROS and the Village Hall.
Thanks to Sue and the team and auctioneer Paul Williams for their efforts.

Arnesby May Fayre Monday 29 May 2017
Disappointing weather yet again but the serious rain held off until late afternoon. Around 550 cars used our car park and everyone who attended enjoyed the usual mix of things to see, eat and listen to.
Profit from the event is expected to be around £5,000 which will be used to support local organisations and amenities.

The Cross Country race was again popular with nearly 60 adults and 17 juniors taking part. Full results here»
Feb 17th. A concert by husband & wife duo HowdenJones, balladiers, singer/ songwriters and storytellers was enjoyed by a full hall. Using acoustic instruments and exploring folk, blues and contemporary music styles Kate Howden and Paul Jones write all their own material and play guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo, ukulele and Bodhran.

Arranged by Sue and Brian. Any proceeds will go towards a new hall heating system.
