What’s On Golden Valley 25th March 2019
Hello, and welcome to the latest diary update for the Golden Valley. I have actually been busy over the past week or so preparing for the Easter Fair at the Steiner academy, Hereford. This is on Sunday 7th April, at the school, 11-4. It should be a great event, as we now have more than 30 stall holders booked, a pony ride, pet petting, treasure hunt, pop corn and food. Should be a great day out!
Before that, on Saturday 30th March it is the monthly Vowchurch Farmers’ Market, with a first-rate array of stalls and great bacon butties. It is worth attending just for them! And then on Sunday, Mothering Sunday, they are hosting a special breakfast. Think I’ll be booking a place for the family!
This week, we have some advance notices and reminders of regular events.
In order, they are:
Pysanky Decorating Workshop – April 8 and 16, 2019 (details below)

From 25th – 27th May 2019, Ewyas Harold will hold its second Arts Festival, showcasing and selling the works of local artists, photographers and crafts people in Ewyas Harold Memorial Hall, St Michael’s Hall, St Michael’s Church, the Temple Bar Inn, the Baptist Hall, and the Methodist Hall.
There will be other events and activities too; craft demonstrations and videos, a display of old photos of the village, music by community choirs and The Psychedelic Hearts’ Club Band, and opportunities to learn how to ring the church bells. Villagers and local schoolchildren are already helping make bunting, as well as making plans for their scarecrows.
More details will follow on this event.
