Shevington village fete promises to be bigger and better than ever!

Shevington Fete Sue Johnston

A village fete which has grown over the past few years promises to offer its biggest and best event in 2018! People in the local community of Shevington, Wigan, were disappointed in 2016 because the annnual Fete could not run due to lack of volunteers. Late last year, the committee saw an influx of willing volunteers and it was decided to hold the event on Saturday 30th June.

The whole community are invited to attend, whether as visitors or stallholders. The stalls don’t just offer locally, handmade crafts, goods and food but also include information stalls with representatives from local and nationwide charities and organisations including Northern Greyhound Rescue, the local branches of Women’s Institute, Butterflies Children’s Charity and The Samaritans of Wigan.

Return of the Night Market at Balgove Larder

With a programme of live music, crafts, street food and of course, the very best food and drink from Scotland’s best loved farm shop, Balgove Larder is delighted to announce a new season of Night Market’s taking place monthly in 2018.

The markets take place from May to September with an additional Christmas Night Market in December in Balgove Larder’s famous Steak Barn. The Steak Barn is a distinctive converted saw mill with walls made from recycled potato crates and a huge wood-fired barbeque at its centre.  Visitors will be able to choose from a menu of dishes straight off the grill or select snacks from the changing roster of the latest street food outlets.
