Castle Bytham’s Midsummer Festival proceeds presented to good causes
Huge numbers of visitors from near and far enjoyed Castle Bytham’s Midsummer Festival in June and thousands of pounds was raised for good causes despite parking and entrance being free.
At a wine and nibbles event in Castle Bytham Village Hall on Tuesday, August 9, the outgoing chairman of the festival committee, Peter Hinton, presented cheques totalling £5,000 to eight community projects. This money was raised by the tombola, raffle, duck race and the profits of the sale of food and drink.
A cheque for £1,000 towards the maintenance and repair of St James’ Church was presented to Rev Graham Buckle, while Mike Wade accepted a cheque for £1,000 on behalf of the Village Hall Committee. Another £1,000 grant was made to the Bytham’s Community Shop project, accepted by Richard Kent.
