Spring is well on its way and the annual Egg Hunt (under 12’s) takes place on Easter Monday 22nd April, with Easter eggs hidden in the grounds, prizes for different age groups and an Easter bonnet and decorated egg competition. It begins at 1.45 pm in the main hall with the selection of the Mediaeval Fayre May Queen and her attendants, by raffle ticket draw. The free egg hunt , sponsored by SCA and the Mediaeval Fayre Committee, begins at 2 pm. The bar will also be open.

Preparations for Sedgefield Mediaeval Fayre (Saturday 18th May) are well underway. We’re looking forward to starting the day with the children’s walking parade which this year is based on ‘The Greatest Showman’. The circus skills theme goes through much of the day with free workshops and activities taking place on the lawns and on the green.
Popular attractions, fun fair rides, craft stalls, community stalls and a range of activities which include mediaeval displays, Living History, Tug of War, Birds of Prey and face painting on the green and in the grounds of Ceddesfeld are there for everyone to enjoy.
The fayre is a longstanding community event which draws people to the town and provides an opportunity for a great family day out. There are refreshments and the bar at Ceddesfeld Hall is open all day. It’s also a busy day for the local pubs and businesses, several of which sponsor the event. Many local groups
do get involved but any further support from volunteers who can offer help selling raffle tickets, manning stalls and with preparation in the run up to the day is much needed. Please do get in touch or add your name to the rota lists in the foyer at Ceddesfeld. Just one hour of your time makes a big difference.
The ‘Proclamation’ and collections timetable will be in next month’s edition so please be ready with any toys, books, tins& groceries, bric-a brac and raffle/tombola prizes, when volunteers come knocking. Collectors will be easily recognisable wearing yellow SCA waistcoats. All volunteers will have an opportunity to take part in a free prize draw. We’re looking forward to a great day!
