Sutton Upon Derwent is set to hold its first community event since lockdown over the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, July 10 and 11.

On Saturday there will be a village-wide garage/driveway sale starting at 10.30am.

People will set up car boot type stalls in their drives and garages. A map of venues taking part will be produced and available on the Saturday morning at the village hall.

The village hall, school, and church have joined forces to organise a fete on Sunday between 1pm and 4pm.

To help social distancing the event will be spread across three sites across the village.

There’s a bar, BBQ , tea and refreshments, craft stalls, best Victoria Sponge Cake competition, children’s trampolines and an inflatable slide at the hall, while the school will host a plant stall, nature trail, children’s games and art competition. There’s also a flower arranging competition event, archery, and a display of photographs at the church.

Throughout the weekend there will be a Teddy Bear trail for families to complete.

A map is available from Elvington shop and Sutton Upon Derwent Post Office.
