Carnival weekend is fast approaching! Last Friday saw the bunting go up along the Evesham Road THANKS to Redditch Council @RedditchMatters. Wednesday saw the Carnival Committee members putting up bunting along the path of the procession throughout the village. Well done !
Winning tickets this year were bought by a number of ways – at Hancox, door to door, over Carnival weekend, by some of the charities we support, the pub crawl and of course the First school.
