tug-of-war

What larks!

.. and what do we say about the tug of war at the Duncombe? Well, firstly, well done our lads and lass for their silver medal performance!

There will of course be a village celebration with bunting and music … or maybe just a drink next Friday evening.

Interesting that the Team Wootton had done some practice prior to the event – and to their credit, did just beat us into second place. There was talk of banned substances, but to be fair, alcohol is freely available in a pub. We now have to consider the legacy and whether the funding is sufficient to get in a coach.

Many thanks to all those who organised and to those who took part by submitting produce and to everyone who gave a hand on the day as it is a fabulous annual village event.
