VILLAGE MARKET AND CAR BOOT BOOKINGS

 

The MCA took the decision at their meeting on 10th January that the Village Market be cancelled for the time being due to lack of people available to help each month.  It is hoped that something new will be able to commence in September.  Details will be in both the Parish Magazine and here, on the website, when a decision has been made.  The Market has been running for over 35 years and has raised large sums of money to help with the running and maintenance of the Hall.

HARVEST HOME

 

Mark Harvest Home started with the Mark Cricket Club which began in 1884.  In 1885 it was decided to have a cricket match and dance and to call it Mark Cricket Club Festival.  This continued until the First World War when it ceased for a while but began again after the war and took the form of Victory Celebrations.  After that it took the title of Harvest Home.

 

The day begins with a Thanksgiving Service in Mark Church.  Then everyone walks in procession to the Harvest Home field where there is a huge marquee decorated with floral and harvest hoops, which give the tent a festive appearance.  There is keen competition among the parishioners who decorate the hoops as prizes are awarded to the various entries in the Adults and Children’s classes.  After the lunch, which starts at 1.00 pm, and the toasts given by invited speakers, there are sports for the children, as well as afternoon tea for the villagers, children and friends.  The day finishes with a dance and bar in the evening

 

Mark Harvest Home is held every year on the second Saturday of August - the date for 2018 is 11th August.
