Festival

Village event was a success

Thank you to everyone who helped to make the Embleton Festival of Crafts, Flowers and Music such a successful community event.

Almost 100 people were involved, including the children of the village school and members of local sports and interest groups.

Many exhibited their skills in making music, flower arranging, needlecraft, knitting, painting, calligraphy, military and railway models, local history research, and with the catering.

Money raised from donations and the catering amounted to £1,024.

The local Citizen’s Advice Bureau has been given £250 and the remainder is for church funds.
