Medieval theme over two weekends

Caistor will soon spend two consecutive weekends taking a step back in time – to the Medieval period.

The first event will be the Open Gardens Weekend, taking place on June 27 and 28.

The weekend, organised by Caistor In Bloom in aid of the Red Cross, features a scarecrow trail which this year will have a Medieval theme.

The following weekend, July 4 and 5, will be the Caistor Goes Street Party. This year it will be held on the Saturday and Sunday at South Street Park. A Medieval theme was also chosen, to tie in with the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta.

Caistor Town Council heard on Thursday (June 11, 2015) that plans for both weekends were progressing well.

Cllr Deborah Barker, a leading member of Caistor In Bloom, said the Open Gardens Weekend will include some stalls at South Street Park. She praised one family for continuing with their plans to open their garden, despite bereavement.

Cllr Mike Stopper praised the diverse programme of entertainment for all age groups at the Caistor Goes Medieval and said he was confident people would see something special this year. He praised fellow councillor Alan Caine for all his hard work organising the event each year.

Two other forthcoming events were mentioned at the town council. The first is a roadshow by Viking FM on Thursday, June 25, between 11am and 3pm. The roadshow will focus on Next Steps for young people who are due to sit exams this summer.

The second is a major biking event at The Settlement on August 19, between 6pm and 9.30pm. Councillors were told it was likely to be a big event with potentially more than 500 bikes coming to the town. It will be put on the agenda for the next council meeting, said Town Clerk Helen Pitman.

    Congratulations to Caistor in Bloom, especially Mike and Deborah, for making the town look so beautiful with all their hard work over the last few days putting up the flower baskets.

    Hopefully the town will be full of visitors for Caistor Goes and they will leave with a more favourable impression of our town. Fingers crossed for good weather, we deserve some.
