Barton under Needwood Family Festival
2018 Event Summary
The Teddy Rides have been packed away for another year after a wonderful weekend and Barton Family Festival can announce that we have raised the splendid sum of £4,500 for good causes.
The weekend was a great success, with great weather and all the Teddy Rides busy as usual from start to finish on both days, although our latest ride, Watertedski expired in the heat later on Sunday!
A presentation evening will be held on Friday (July 13) at Holland Sports Club at 6.30pm to hand over cheques, present prizes and medals to the scarecrow competition winners and thank everyone who helped to make the Festival such a success.
The money raised will be shared between Burton YMCA, Staffordshire Foster Carers, Barton Thomas Russell Infant school PTA and St James' Church.
The young Paratedic crews who gallantly rescued teddies from the Ballistic Bear ride will also receive certificates.
Next year’s Festival will be on 22nd & 23rd June 2019.
