You will scarcely need reminding that Slingsby’s big May weekend culminates this Monday 7th May. Where are you? – Come and join in the fun!
The May Day celebrations will open on The Green at 11 am with Swinton Band.
There will be stalls around the green and in the village hall, tombola, raffle, children’s activities and refreshments. Pulled pork sandwiches on the Green, tea, coffee and snacks in the village hall and in the Methodist chapel school room. This year there will be lots of fantastic prizes to be won.
At noon the children will dance for one hour around the maypole, some of them weaving patterns with the ribbons while the younger ones do their stamping and clapping in time to the music provided by the players.
At 1 pm the Minster Stray dancers will perform their dances, followed by the Charity Brass Band from 1:30 while all the other dancers (children and adults) learn new steps, before coming to show us what they have learned.
The Charity Brass Band will round off the day at 3 pm with the raffle.
Of course the weekend started on Saturday May 5th with the Scarecrow Trail. There is still time to join in.
