Not long now until our "Legendary" Midsummer Meet at Astle Park, Chelford.

The theme for the weekend is "A Day on the Beach" so dig out your bathers and flippers and get them packed early. Lets hope someone has booked the sunshine!!!

We have all your favourite events plus a couple of new ideas, aswell as an amazing LIVE act on Saturday night "Outer Limits" who wow'd us last August at Sycamore Farm.

No matter whether it's rain or shine this annual meet is full of fun for the whole family. Have a look at our programme for the weekend!

Annual Worm Charming @ Ingbirchworth 27th May - 30th May 2016
This will be our 4th Annual Worm Charming Event and it really does pull in the punters.

Come and have some fun and use your skills to charm the worms from the ground. Competitors compete for a trophy which is awarded to the person charming the most worms from their plot in thirty minutes. The title is held for one year. There are more trophies to win in fun categories.

The most successful method used so far is that of hand vibrating a four prong garden fork inserted approximately 15cms into the turf, now known as 'twanging'.

Buy your plot in aid of youth funds and have the most fun you’ve had in a while!!

If you don’t fancy your chances at worm charming there are a number of off road walks in the area including the nearby walk around the reservoir.

A general store and pub/restaurant are situated in the village across the reservoir dam. There is also the popular farm and ice cream outlet a short drive away towards Huddersfield and a supermarket and other facilities in nearby Penistone. There is also the Fountain Pub for meals which is only a 15 minute walk away.

Social evening Saturday night with a sausage sizzle and a few quizzes

Hope to see you there.....Katy & Mark x
