Open Park Farm, Sawtry and Market Harborough Carnival Sponsorship
Now that the formalities of ‘General Election’ voting is out the way, at least temporarily, the folk of Market Harborough, Sawtry, Thorney, and the surrounding areas can concentrate on what they’re really interested in, the forthcoming entertainment that will be taking place in the respective towns and villages this weekend.
Park Farm, the home of Open Farm and Vintage Weekend returns. Dating back to 2006, with in excess of 43,000 visitors attending since its initiation, the occasion connects farmers with its customers, celebraing the nearby countryside, habitat and produce. Activities over the two days will include; Lamb feeding, Sausage making, Butter making and Livestock Zones.
In the adjoining county, the village of Sawtry will be out in force once more, as a 3,000 strong audience will welcome traditional parades, fairground rides and specialist food and drink facilities.
Meanwhile, Market Harborough is set to see up to 5,000 residents line the streets as the annual carnival returns, with 1,000 participants due to compete in the 3rd run of its kind, in the town.
Entrants will be enduring various distances, from 1 mile, 10km, Half Marathon, right through to the ‘Relay Challenge’ which will take in the idyllic rural villages of Great Bowden, Welham and Thorpe Langton, before a spectacular finish at the Carnival Show Ground. All of which will be supported by floats, bands, and a host of live events and stalls.
The tremendous community spirit that will be enjoyed at each of these events is somewhat of a given, but what they also have in common, is support from local business Mick George Ltd. The company has contributed countless, free Skips, Wheelie Bins, as well as educational provisions in the form of truck demonstrations, and activities that include the Mick George Inflatable shootout.
Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’With everything that’s going on in the world at the moment, it’s pleasing to see local communities unite, and come together to really enjoy these annual events.’’
Stump continued: ‘’We like to offer a helping hand where we can, it’s a gesture of our appreciation for their ongoing support.’’
