We are going ahead! The buses will be running.

The forecast for Sunday 5th June just doesn’t look too good, BUT we have managed to fit quite a number of the stalls into the Sports Centre. Come and see how bees make honey. And there is an owl in attendance.

A children’s magician at 12.00!

The Digi-Wall, the circus skills and the live Band ‘Rocks and Frocks’ will all now be housed in the Sports Centre, while the Parish Hall will serve teas/coffees and loads of cake.

There will be some attractions outside but they will be weather dependent.

All the other venues are still taking part – so take a ride on the bus and hop-off, hop-on when you like.

Put on your macs and wellies and come and spend some time with us!

GREAT DAY for the whole family

2 buses to ride
Stormtroopers are back
Digi-wall experience

Music entertainment from ‘Rocks and Frocks’ – great to listen to or even have a dance!

Stalls of various kinds to attract your attention; some selling home produced products.

No Greasley Gathering in 2021

Regretfully, yet again, we have had to take a decision to cancel the Greasley Gathering for 2021 because of the uncertainty of the pandemic and the lockdowns.

Let’s keep fingers crossed that 2022 is a much better year and we can look forward to holding this wonderful day again.

Only 2 days to go!!

That’s it – 2 days to go to The Greasley gathering 2019.

Red buses ready, entertainment ready,  let’s enjoy the day!
