While it is too soon to know whether or not we will be able to hold our Family Fun Day and Vintage Rally in 2020 the most advanced preparation required has taken place-Maurice has the corn sowed in the cornfield.
We were delighted to receive a considerable grant from the National Lottery Fund towards our 2020 Family Fun Day and Vintage Rally. In light of the Covid-19 virus we may have to carry this grant over to 2021.

Other activities include: Model Farm, Wood Turning, Rare Breeds, donkeys, pony and trap rides, steam engine, Archery, Threshing and Bailing display,and exhibitions on "60 years of the Mini car" and "Farming through the Ages". Stalls include Glenda's knits and crafts; Genelle's home baking, baby knits and children's jewellery; Handikat Krafts and Ice Cream; Local musician Trevor Dixon and well known singer and yodeller Kenny Archer will supply the music throughout the day.
"Valerie's Catering Emporium" (well the Ladies Committee) will stock soup, stew, sandwiches, buns, tea and coffee, crisps and juice and "Bobby's Hot Food Bar" will have burgers, hot dogs and bacon butties. Make sure you come early for the hot food as the soup and stew sell out very quickly.
The Road-Run will set off at 3.30pm sharp, completing a short local circular route and returning to the Rally fields to finish the afternoon. This year's charity partners are Ballynahinch Counselling Services and Friends of MS Research QUB.
The 2019 Rally and Family Fun Day is supported by Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council Community Festival Fund.
