Alne Preschool Playgroup - Scarecrow Trail

Alne preschool playgroup will be having their usual stall of good quality children’s toys, games, books and nursery equipment etc. so if you have any, they are now taking donations.

In addition to this they are hosting a Scarecrow trail. The theme will be Children’s books, in order not to get any duplicates, you will be asked to enter to take part, entry fee being £4.00 per scarecrow and send your proposed entry in. The scarecrows will be within the street fayre itself, so if you live outside the area and would still like to enter we have agreed that ‘extra’ scarecrows can be sited within the area, or up at the park/playing field, so everyone can enter. 

There is a have a prize for the scarecrow voted the best by the street fayre visitors, 

Scarecrows will need to be completed and up by Friday 3rd September (have a fun end to the summer holidays showing us your creativity).

To enter - email [email protected] with your name, address and book you are depicting by the 15th August. 

Buskers Wanted!!

Are you a budding musician who would like the opportunity to play live and maybe earn a few pennies for doing so?

We are looking for musicians of any age who would like to perform for a 15 minute slot in our 'Buskers Tent' at the Street Fayre.

The tent will be along Mitchell Lane on the way to the main field where there is a good footfall. We are aiming to create a festival atmosphere with the stalls and live music. We hope to provide an Amp for those performing.

Slots will be 15 minutes with a changeover of 5-10 mins depending on the number of performers we have on the day.

We welcome singers, clarinet players, saxophonists, guitarists......anything and we are particularly keen to promote younger musicians.

So if you are interested or know someone who might be then please get in touch to discuss and reserve your slot.

We will sign it well and of course provide a hat for you to collect any earnings in - all yours to keep!
