Vintage Rally

The Vintage Rally, which had to be cancelled on Sunday last due to the inclement weather will hopefully take place on this coming Sunday, September 23rd. There will be lots of entertainment with tug of war, sheaf tossing, music and a barbecue at the Top of the Town from 5 to 6.30pm. So hopefully the weather will be favourable and there will be a big crowd in Athea on the day.
