Ellingham Mill

Kirby Cane & Ellingham Playground Party

We are disappointed to announce that we will not now be holding our fund raiser this year. Many thanks to everyone who offered support but unfortunately after having to cancel the party planned in August due to the bad weather we have been unable to find a date which suited everybody involved in the event. Not to be done out of a party we will be holding this next year in June/July and make sure this one is bigger and better than last year. Apologies to those who had prepared food or goods to sell at this event.
