Tomorrow sees the latest in a series of agricultural shows take place within Northumberland. What does that have to do with The Stephen Carey Fund you may well ask.
Rural areas are those most likely to benefit from Public Access Defibrillators (PADs) in many ways so when the call came in a few weeks ago from the community of Falstone to enquire about a defibrillator we were delighted to talk.
That same community is looking to collect donations towards the provision of their own PAD for the village of Falstone and are starting at the Border Shepherds Show on Saturday 23rd August.
The gates open at 9:00am and activities include:
- Sheep Dog Trials
- Pony Sports
- Stock Judging
- Live Music
- Dog Judging
- Children’s Sports
- Fell Race
- Beer Tent
If you are in the area please do pop in, these local shows are an absolute delight and sure to entertain you. Between 12 noon and 4pm the local parish council will be collecting donations, all those who make a donation will be entered into a raffle which could see you win any one of a selection of cakes.
