The organisers very much hope that those booking space in the church will take up the offer of setting up their stall in the afternoon of Friday 11th October, however we understand if this should not be possible.
Both the public and stallholders will be asked to park their vehicles on the recreation ground, a 2 minute walk from the church. Please note this area will be stewarded throughout the event.
It is hoped a portaloo will be available in the church grounds.
Public admission to the show is £1, which entitles the bearer to a free hot drink in the village hall.
Stallholders will be offered every assistance by a team of volunteers to unload their vehicles prior to the event and with loading afterwards.
Unless you notify us in advance each space will be contain one 6’ table and one chair.
All stallholders will, on the day, be issued with a pass out ticket to ease their passage at the entrance.

All profits from the event will be equally divided between Eardisland Parochial Church Council and Eardisland in Bloom.

parish or are resident in the parish and whose names are entered on the local

Those whose names are entered on the Church Electoral Roll are entitled to vote

Both the Churchwardens are standing down this year so we would really
welcome your input at these meetings.
There will also be an opportunity to hear about what St. Mary’s has been doing
during 2018 and it’s exciting plans for the coming year.
Do come along.
