Edlington Festival 2018

EDLINGTON FESTIVAL – 28th July, 2018

Edlington Festival was held last Saturday and proved to be a very successful event and was very well attended. Thanks to all those members of the local community that turned out for the parade and service of commemoration at the former Pit head at the top of Grace Road. The Town Council would also like to thank the young “Edlington heroes” that joined the Town Mayor & Deputy in leading the parade procession from Bungalow Road, down Edlington Lane and were awarded individual certificates in recognition of the special achievement/activity that they had each undertaken in the Edlington community.

The afternoon’s festivities on the Welfare ground was also well supported and attractions included many stalls, both charitable and commercial, live performances on stage from singer Lottie Simone, the Brady School of Irish Dance, Chesterfield Chevrons marching band and within the Welfare field activities set up by Storm Taekwando, Medieval re-enactment group, Y-Rifles brigade shooting activity and EPIC Archery.
