Yorkshire Day 2012

IMGP0238 - Copy (640x327)

On the last Sunday of July or the first Sunday of August every alternate year, Millington village celebrates Yorkshire Day.  

 

Formerly known as Millington Parish Fair, in 1993 the Fair had a Produce Show, Exhibiton of Handicrafts and Floral Display, Children`s Craft and Baking Competitions, Pet Show, Children`s Sports, 5 a side Football and a Tug of War,

a Millington Wood Walk and an Evening Barbecue.    

 

Over the years some things have stayed the same, a few have changed, and on Sunday 30th July 1995

Tom`s                                                            , "a treat not to be missed",  danced outside the Gate Inn at 12.30.

 

By 1998 (a year was missed), the Parish Fair was better known as Yorkshire Day:  the Millington Wood Walk gone,  but with the additions of a Hill Run, Treasure Hunt, Children`s Fancy Dress, and the Betty Clarke Village Tea (all long lasting events ... still here for Yorkshire Day 2012).
