Picnic in the Paddock at East Barkwith

THE annual Picnic in the Paddock being organised by the St Mary’s Church Committee at East Barkwith in aid of the Tower Restoration Fund is on Saturday August 20 from 6pm, with the gates open from 5.30pm.

The venue is Perkin’s Paddock next to the churchyard by kind permission of Mike and Jane Perkins and access for vehicles is along the drive to Barkwith House.

Live music, including folk, folk rock and sixties rock will be provided by local performers and guests are invited to take along their own picnic food and drink with chairs, tables, blankets and gazebos if they wish.

Entry for adults is £5 with children under 15 free, but they must be accompanied by an adult.

The church will be opened to provide shelter if the weather is unfavourable.
