Mediaeval Fayre: As usual, Sedgefield’s two fantastic primary schools combine efforts to make a fabulous walking parade and show (not to be missed) on the day. This year’s theme will celebrate the links and relationship between America and Great Britain. A little later in the day of course, Prince Harry will marry Meghan Markle. It’s not only us who are hoping for a sunny day! All of the other arrangements are now in the final stages. There is a wide range of new craft stalls and charity stalls as well as mediaeval displays, Living History, Tug of War, Birds of Prey, face painting, Punch and Judy and much more on the green and in the grounds of Ceddesfeld. Refreshments will be served all day at Ceddesfeld Hall by Sedgefield Bloomers, so don’t miss out on your bacon butty or chocolate cake!
Many local businesses sponsor this event (SCA’s biggest fundraiser) and various community groups support in the run up and on the day. Members of SCA help also by taking part in the big Raffle Draw, for which tickets have just been circulated. More tickets will be sold on the day. The event is run solely by local volunteers and all assistance (even if just for an hour on the day, or an evening collecting) is extremely helpful and makes a massive difference.
Door to door collections for the Fayre Donations of non perishable foods, books, toys, bric-a-brac, raffle and tombola gifts this would be greatly appreciated. SCA are not able to take any furniture or clothes.

The SCA have been successful in the recent round of community funding. Below there is something that you could do to help. If you sign up to become Co-op members 5% of what you spend goes back to you and 1% goes to the selected community group. It costs £1 to become a member. The current round runs until April 2018.
With the money raised SCA will be buying a wide selection of children's outdoor games and activities with the intention of running events and providing opportunities for families and young people.
