As Chair of the Wakes Committee, I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone who contributed to this years wakes celebrations. After months of preparation and planning, the Wakes Committee were glad to finally get into the jungle and enjoy sunshine especially on Big Sat’day. We couldn’t do it without all the people who help and take part though, from putting out notices, inviting friends, marshalling, collecting money, organising events, decorating houses or shops, even buying a programme or raffle ticket, it all adds up to a great week which celebrates Tideswell and benefits good causes.

Don’t forget to contact the Wakes Committee as soon as possible by 6 th August with any requests for funding this year.
