This year’s Grimsargh Field Day is on Saturday and promises to be as good as ever.

Festivities will begin with the procession through the village at 1pm.

Then there will be a jam packed afternoon of fun and entertainment on the village green, where retiring queen Alice Cowell will crown her successor, Emily Lees.

But, as previously stated, extra help is needed for 
future field days, not only people to join the committee, but others who are maybe only willing to help out on the day.

Queens, retinues and fancy dress entrants will gather at the village hall around 12.30pm ready for the fancy dress judging, with classes for all – be it for large or small groups, individuals or decorated wheels.

It is not too late to enter, just turn up on the day and help give field day a boost.

Decorated floats will assemble on the playground of Alston Lane School, again ready for judging at 12.30pm, and if anyone has a vintage car or tractor they will be very welcome to assemble there, too.

The famous Grimsargh Dog Show takes place in the main arena, with categories for the waggiest tail, scruffiest mutt, most obedient pooch and most cute and adorable.

There is also a junior football competition – just turn up on the day and a committee member will register your team.

On the field there will be a full range of entertainment and activities including The Camdens, children’s and adults’ races, Lancashire Hawks and Owls, “Polly” the Vintage Caravan, gladiator jousting, the “famous” field day committee barbecue, bands, fairground rides, WI tea tent, more than 40 stalls, Grimsargh Community Choir and much, much more.

And don’t forget there is the popular Disney themed scarecrow competition.

So if you fancy a walk around the village prior to the big day, you are sure to see some very interesting sights.
