The Kids will go wild for this

WOW… this is just the best assault course around.

Its big and bright and every child will love it.

Go in at the start go past the bashers, then climb up the slide and down the other side.

It has a cover over it from start to the end and its 46 feet long.

It’s for the Corscombe Fest only but your children will be talking about it for days…. don’t miss it and make sure that you bring the camera to take a picture of the smile of enjoyment on your child’s face!

Flying high at the Fest

Do you love planes and flying?
Do you fancy a chance to fly your own plane?

If the answer is yes then get along to the Corscombe Fest.

Back after its success at the Fest in 2016 will be a flight simulator and a model aeroplane flying display

Weather permitting from 1pm to 4.30pm a model aeroplane flying display will take place in an area adjacent to the Fete, presented by Chesil Model Flying Club www.chesilmfc.com.

There will also be a flight simulator to enable people to simulate flying a model plane: for an extra fee promising pilots should be allowed and fly an actual model plane (under supervision!)

Corscombe-Halstock--Community-Responders

Raising money for local causes

A lot goes into organising the event but it’s for some very important local causes.  We want to raise the most ever this year but we cannot only do that with your support.

If someone needs urgent medical help and phones for an ambulance it’s the First Responders that will normally arrive first. Helping save lives and look after people until the ambulance can arrive.

Other local organisations that receive funds are the local playgroup is the only one for miles and the village hall.

Click here for more information on where money from past events has gone to but whatever happens come along and have a great day out while helping some great local causes.
