A country day out in Edale

EDALE Country Day taking place on Sunday, June 12, will be a true mix of ancient and modern this year.

Along with the usual display of rural crafts, the organisers are pleased to announce the return of the Punch and Judy show, and for the more adventurous, there will be a climbing wall where budding mountaineers can test their climbing skills.

This popular event promises many of the old favourites, with demonstrations of rural crafts such as rope-making, wood-turning and spinning.

The entertainment includes something for all the family, from bouncy castles for toddlers to home made tea and cakes for those with less energy to spare.

“One of the highlights is always the cheering in of the fell runners collapsing over the line after the 5-mile sprint up Kinder,” said organiser Diane Ashton-Jeanes.

“And this year there’s a new junior race, for 10-16 year olds. Also new this year are Hathersage Dance School, featuring some of Edale’s own youngsters, and the local hunt.”

Edale Country Day takes place on Edale playing field, next to the main car park, from 10.30am-5pm on Sunday June 12.

Entrance is £3 for adults, £1 for children. Under-3’s are free. Parking is £3.
