Fylde Vintage Steam and Farm Show Rosemere Night

This year’s Fylde Vintage Steam and Farm Show Rosemere Night was held again at Weeton Village Hall and was again a full house. The food, including cheese and onion pie, meat and potato pie and apple pie with cream, was served at 8pm and was delicious. The MC was the wonderful Steven Lowe of Radio Lancashire who kept the evening going with help from Nancy and Auctioneer Fred Spurgeon. Fred did a great job as usual, selling the articles on the night plus vouchers and promises, ably assisted by Jeanie and Mrs Spurgeon. The total raised on the night came to an amazing £1837.00 thanks to everybody’s generosity. A huge thank you to David and Nancy for their unwavering support of Rosemere.

David also organises the Fylde Vintage Steam and Farm Show every year, and next year’s show is the last weekend in June (27th-28th), and promises to be bigger and better than ever before. As well as 500 vehicles of all sorts on display, the main attractions are The Wigan Ukulele Band, The Big Sheep Show (with the dancing sheep), Punch & Judy, Tractor Pulling, and Mr Alexander’s Travelling Magic Show plus Pianist Martin Obidans (from Royal Yacht Brittania). Saturday evening in the Beer Tent will be Comedian Curtis King, plus Dan Chetoe - Tom Jones Tribute. There will also be 2 large working rings, with parades each day.

Jazz Legend Eric Puts On A “Grand” Show For Rosemere

Extra seats had to be hastily brought in when on the day demand for concert tickets to see Clitheroe jazz legend Eric Ainsworth perform with friends at The Grand in a fundraising show for charity Rosemere Cancer Foundation pushed audience numbers beyond all expectation.

Up-cycling Brings in £686

Thank you to Pauline and all at Burnley Pension Centre for raising a wonderful £686.00 for Rosemere by holding an 'upcycling event' and Radley handbag raffle back on the 27th September. Area Fundraiser Louise enjoyed hearing about the day when she went to meet Pauline and collect the money.

Well Done Lorien

Area Fundraiser Louise had a nice surprise last week when 7 year old Lorien Crowther called in to the office to hand over her sponsorship following this year’s Walk The Lights. Not only did Lorien walk the 5 miles on the night with her Grandad but she raised a fantastic £100 in sponsorship too.

Well done and thank you - feel proud Lorien

Friends And Neighbours Hit The Right Note!

Friends and neighbours Des McGhee and Michael Needham hit just the right note when they organised a home town evening of Irish and country music at Nelson’s KSC Club earlier this month. A fabulous £1,587 was raised.

The event, which starred Pat Jordan & Kieran with guest vocalist Karen O’Brien, was a sell-out. There was a great atmosphere with a wonderful raffle and auction on the night. Thank you to everybody who was involved in the evening and who went along to support the show.
