A special event is to be held on Saturday 1 September 2018 in memory of Colin Jelly's wife Linda who died in 2016 and who was passionate about Naomi House Childrens Hospice.
What started as a small tea party in Colin's garden has evolved into this large wonderful event with live music, a funfair and much more.
The attractions include an arena with falconry demonstrations including owls, ravens, hawks, and falcons, a twelve man dog handler display team showing various stunts including jumping through fire (not to be missed), a traditional children's funfair, the Ringwood Pipe Band and a stage with live music acts throughout the day.
Now Colin needs the support of all of us to make this special event a really special success!
On the day entry will be £5 per adult (children under 13 free)
No need to go hungry - plenty to eat for everyone with a Lamb and Hog spit roast, New Forest Pizza Company, Carribean goat curry, and other delights including fish & chips, burgers and much more - plus Forest Scoops ice cream and a licensed bar.
There will also be a draw on the day, some great prizes have already been donated including a bottle of whiskey signed by the Prime Minister and the Speaker! .
Money raised is to go towards something that the hospice would not be able to pay for out of their usual funds, but will bring a smile to the children’s faces. Colin is in regular contact with Naomi House and they are very excited about the project.
Now Colin needs the support of the rest of us, to give it the best chance of success
This really is to be a unique event in aid of a very worthy cause, Colin is hoping that a most memorable day will be had by all that attend and take part.
There's now also a Facebook page with which you can keep up to date with developments:
