Revel brings village together

ORGANISERS of this year’s Pucklechurch Revel say the village festival was judged to be a big success by villagers who came along.

Revel day on June 15 saw a traditional parade from Hill View along Castle Road, Westerleigh Road, Abson Road and back to the Recreation Field for a fair with stalls, children’s entertainment and live music.

The field also hosted a two-night beer and cider festival, with a family evening on the Friday followed by an adults-only night.

Omie Flook, one of the organisers, said: “We were extremely lucky with the weather on Saturday day time, and the parade was brilliant.

“All the village groups embraced the ‘all creatures great and small’ theme.  

“The winners of the parade were the guide group with their Very Hungry Caterpillar entry.  

“The day was very well attended with lots of stalls and food.

“People enjoyed a magic show, a farm visit, races, a tug of war, dog show and live music from Decibels and Angie. 

“The rain affected attendance to the evening events, but the people that were there had a brilliant time, with a large variety of cider and beer, and fantastic music from You Me and the Dancefloor on Friday night, and Stupid on the Saturday night.”

All money raised from the event will go towards local causes. 

Organisers are inviting anyone interested in helping run the event to volunteer at their annual meeting in September – the date will be published on the revel’s Facebook page nearer the event – or to get in touch by email at
