Saturday 7 May is the day Toothill comes together to have fun and give residents the chance to suggest ways of making the area a better place over the next ten years.
A steering committee made up of members of community groups have been working together with Toothill Primary School to organise a joint event which will see all the traditional fete activities take place.
On the day there will be stalls, games, facepainting, bouncy castle and trampoline, penalty shoot out, competitions, demonstrations, dog training, police car and fire engine, and refreshments.
There will also be a special prize draw for a £100 supermarket voucher and a meal for 6 at the DeVere Village Italian restaurant offered to people who contribute ideas on how the Big Lottery £1 million award could be spent.
Ruth Kiddle of the organising group said, “later this year the grant-making body appointed by the Big Lottery will begin to assess ideas from the community but we wanted to make a headstart on ensuring people are aware of this amazing opportunity for our area, finding out what people would like to see developed, and have some fun at the same time.”
