We're having a fete!
There will be lots to do including face painting, ice cream, Indian Cuisine, bbq, Sheep throwing contest, Bar, lots of craft stalls & much more.
There is something for everybody and families will have a great day.
Location: Kone Vale Ballingdon
DIRECTIONS: Turn into Middleton Road from Ballingdon Street and you will find us past the row of houses on the left. If you would prefer a more leisurely walk take the exit off the railway walk just before Ballingdon Bridge and you will see the festivities taking place immediately ahead of you.
Sell your crafts/wares or provide a fund raiser and Help the cause.
Lots to do for all the family, whatever your age.
For the young
Lots of fun games for 20p for the kids to play, Nerf gun alley should be popular! We have a professional Face Painter too!
As well as music, food and drink, young (and not so young!) can try their hand at our sheep throwing competition! Based on the legend of the Ballingdon Dragon!
Music provided by local musicians. You may know one or two if you're local.
Bar on site
Our Bar for the afternoon will sell reasonable priced drinks with all profits going to our charity.
Ballingdon is a community of about 400 homes in Sudbury, but was a village in its own right until the 1800’s.
Ballingdon started life in Essex, but changes to borders moved it across into Suffolk, where it has stayed ever since! Even though it’s a Sudbury suburb it has retained its own sense of identity, and still feels a little separate from the rest of the town.
We’re not Sudbury, we’re Ballingdon, actually!
The worthy causes for 2019.
East Anglian Air Ambulance - "Help us save more lives"
Eden-Rose Coppice - "Turning environmental disasters into community dreams"
Sudbury Newstalk - "Providing a news service for the visually impaired"
