Dromod Festival

Four weeks and counting and everything is coming together nicely. The grass is cut and fingers crossed for our fifth year rain free. The line-up for the day so far will include: 5km Fun Run, Farmyard in the Schoolyard, Kids Tractor Rally, Puppet Show, Dromod’s Cube, Kids Dog Show, along with the old familiars: Super Slide, Bouncy Castle, Bungee Run, Rodeo Bull, Face painting, Irish Dancing, Schools Art Competition, Cake Sale and Refreshments. Previous cake sales have been brilliantly supported both by bakers and hungry tummies alike and we are again inviting all residents to bake some cakes and buns to sell on the day. The Festival Committee would again greatly appreciate the help of volunteers on the day. This will involve helping to supervise the different field activities, setting up tables, chairs and artwork in the marquee and also marshalling the fun run. We’re still very interested to hear from any individuals, groups or organisations who could further add to the success of the day. Please contact us on 08799 72439. Fundraising is now in progress and we hope to get the same generosity and support as in previous years. We look forward to your support and will keep you updated.
