Medley day

A great crowd turned out on Sunday June 29 for the annual Medley Day. The village green was peppered with children basking in the glorious sunshine while enjoying ice cream and fun and games. Adults also enjoyed novel attractions such as pot the rat, donkey derby, mouse racing and guessing how long a car ran for with no oil or water. Juvenile races, bouncing castles along with face painting was also provided for the very energetic local children. Music was performed from 6pm till late on a mobile stage off the village green and locals danced the night away outside in the summer sunset. Next year Medley Day is 60 years old.
