Pumpkin Carving Competition




Well done Neasham!! You did even better than last year with 19 households taking part in the event on Saturday 26th October. We had a large contingent of residents and their families joining the walk around the village. Most joined us afterwards in the Fox and Hounds for the judging and the Halloween quiz, with our most accommodating pub landlord, Alex providing some very tasty and warming pumpkin soup.
The artistry and creativity was amazing with everything from cute to quirky to very, very scary. In fact the entries were much more than pumpkin carving ...it was pumpkin art of the very finest!  Many thanks and well done to all those who took part and to Helen Crute, our official photographer. 

The winners were:-
1st Prize Steve and Ali George, New Lane with the Wizard of Oz



2nd Prize  Alex and Kirsty from the Fox and Hounds with Isla's 1st Halloween and the The Tinkerbell Fairy



Joint 3rd Prize Linda Riddle with the Fairy Pumpkin Coach and Chloe James with the Pumpkin Snail  - Teesway 



You can see photographs of all the entries on our website

Coming in 2020 … Juliet and Romeo


Wednesday 22nd April 2020 7.30pm Lost Dog productions present ‘Juliet and Romeo’ Highly acclaimed contemporary dance with humour and spoken word which premiered at Sadlers Wells last year.

Lost Dog's new show reveals the real story of Romeo and Juliet. It turns out they didn't die in a tragic misunderstanding, they grew up and lived happily ever after. Well... they lived at least. Now they are 40ish, at least one of them is in the grips of a mid-life crisis, they feel constantly mocked by their teenage selves and haunted by the pressures of being the poster couple for romantic love. They have decided to confront their current struggles by putting on a performance-about themselves. Their therapist told them it was a terrible idea. Directed by Olivier Award nominated Ben Duke, this blend of dance, theatre and comedy examines our obsession with youth and 'how things are supposed to be'. A humorous and heartfelt investigation into love, loss and longevity.

Running Time 1hr 15mins / Recommended age : 12+

The winner of the best boat, was Evie Longstaffe with HMS Breggsit; Alfie Leafe came 2nd with his model boat called AL100; Isabella Murphy came 3rd with Emblem.

The winner of the boat race was Alfie Leafe with AL100. Dorothy was 2nd with her boat Dottie. Isabella Murphy's boat Emblem came 3rd. 

The winner of the Duck Derby was Jen Stockdale with duck no. 839; Gary Strong came 2nd with no. 919 and Jess Sandick came 3rd with no. 811.We sold our full allocation of 1000 duck tickets, so it’s a big thanks to you all for supporting the event which is a valuable fund raiser for the Reading Room.

And finally, the winner of the fancy dress was Liz Eitel-Bell.
