This year’s Garden Walkabout, in aid of Cancer Research UK, took place on 16th and 17th June.  The event was a great success, in spite of the weather, and raised over £5,000.  Many thanks to everyone who opened their gardens, served teas, baked cakes and donated plants for the stalls!  For the first time, there was a live band performance in Kingston Village Hall.

Marquee for Hire

The Parish Council has a marquee which can be hired out to local organisations or individuals.

The marquee has seven bays in total.  Each bay is 10ft (3m) and spans 30ft (9m). The maximum size is therefore 70ft×30ft (21m×9m).  Each section costs £50 to hire plus £50 for labour, thus the charge for the whole marquee would be £400.  The hirer should arrange their own insurance in respect of material damage, public liability and motor insurance (while attached to a towing vehicle).

The marquee can either be collected by the hirer or arrangements can be made for the marquee to be delivered to the venue and/or returned.  Detailed conditions of hire are available.

Enquiries about hiring the marquee should be made to the Parish Clerk, Richard Parrey, 61 West Leake Lane, Kingston on Soar, tel. 0115 983 0730.
