Where has summer gone, with Blackstock Fair and the CNE on, we know that it has nearly gone.
The Action begins with the Demolition Derby on Friday evening with several new classes including vabs and trucks. Don’t miss the action. The fair which will be opened by world rower Grahan Peeters and Olympist Dr. Darren Barber. An improved horse show and cattle competition, will attract attention. The many exhibits in the Rec Centre, and the variety of vendors in the arena and outdoors, will be of interest. Entertainment features include: jugglist Ben Burland, hypnotist Robert Maxwell and his wife, as well as much more. The day concludes with the Junior Farmer Garden Tractor pull. Everyone who is going to be in the parade, please enter with the secretary.
Wilma and Tom Wotten, Robert Archer and Ron Bradburn, along with a group of travellers, have returned from a fabulous trip, including a tour of Iceland, and a cruise through several Baltic countries. This tour was organized and guided by Wilma.
Best wishes go with Lorinda and Steve Bryans and Mark on their move to Balyduff.
