A free, fun, family day out in the festival way

Wrenfest is fast approaching and we are hoping to see you all there for a fun filled day. We are now starting to get the last things together and we are looking for help. Could you help in one of the following ways:

  • Provide a gazebo for us to use for our stalls?
  • Help with set up or give an hour of your time to be on a stall for the day?
  • Bake a cake?
  • Be a parking attendant?
  • Give up a space on your driveway for the day for helpers so they don’t take up valuable spaces in the car park?
  • Could you sell raffle tickets in advance?

If you can help in anyway then do please get in touch either via e-mail wrenfest@outlook.com mob: 07736 474591 or drop into the school and let them know.

The day is set to be a great event, food, licensed bar, live music, stalls, entertainment and a great raffle! If you are on Facebook please do join the event Wrenfest where there will be weekly updates of what will be happening on the day.

Also if you have a business and would like to advertise in our programme which will be distributed to surrounding areas do please get in touch.

Look forward to seeing you there.
