Once again St. Guthlac‟s Church is taking a very active role in the Stathern Festival this year. As usual the
Festival in total has over 25 events programmed over the 10 days, which last year raised a fantastic £14,000
for village and vale causes.

The church starts off the events on Friday 12th June with an Auction of Promises in the Plough. The full
list of promises will be advertised beforehand (locally and on our website) so that outside bids can be made.
The list already includes having the church bells rung for your special occasion, taxi rides, ironing, and a
day‟s worth of joinery and Playhouse tickets.

On Saturday 13th June, there will be a wonderful Model Railway Exhibition (11.00 – 5.00pm) spread over
the War Memorial Institute and the back room of the Plough. This is bound to draw in enthusiasts and others
alike, all fascinated by the detail involved in these great displays. Continuing our railway theme, there will be
a Children‟s Tea Party with railway games, models and competitions on Sunday 14th June at 4pm in the
churchyard. Just before this at 1.00pm on the same Sunday we will have our now annual Fun Dog Show in
the Chapel Lane Paddock. Whether you have a fine pedigree dog or a lovable Heinz 57, there will be a
place for you pet at our show. Some favourite classes will be back, with some new ones as well.

Our mid-week concert this year on Wednesday 17th June is an Italian Evening, featuring Italian music of
course, plus an excellent Italian themed supper in the interval. The concert this year features a Flutet and

our very own new Head Teacher, Troy Jenkinson, with colleagues from his Magdala operatic group. Every
year this concert is becoming more and more popular, so book your ticket early (£10 each)!

The grandest event of the week is on Friday 19th June and that is the Red Lion Summer Ball, which is a
joint Red Lion and Church event. The combination of a lovely summer‟s evening, renowned Red Lion food,
great band, good company, lovely ambience of the Red Lion courtyard and marquee always makes for a
wonderful atmosphere. The Church benefits from the auction, which will include a week‟s use of a holiday
villa in Crete, and the upmarket raffle.

Saturday 20th June sees our regular and ever popular Strawberry Tea in the garden of 1 Chapel Lane,
and we finish the church events with the Festival Songs of Praise at 6.00pm on Sunday 21st June.
Having said that, we are delighted to be hosting ‘The Green Ship’ School Art Exhibition in the church on
the final Saturday and Sunday, and this will be complemented by further art exhibits from the Vale of
Belvoir Art Society.

So we have an exciting line up of events from the church for these 10 days, let alone all the other events
that make up the total festival. For all the details, please do see our website
which will show prices, venues, times etc as this information becomes available. There will be a festival
booking form for the ticketed events on the website once all the details are finalised and official programmes
and tickets will also be available via Stathern Stores nearer the time. For more information, please ring
Sally Fagan on 01949 860167 or Mob. 07967 699614

Phulbani in northern India; this March the proceeds will go to:

Help for Heroes a non-political charity which aids British servicemen and women wounded in recent and
current conflicts. Its major projects since its foundation in October 2007 have been to fund the building and
equipping of a new swimming pool and facilities at the medical centre at Headley Court (£8 million) and to
donate a further £3.5 million for the Combat Stress treatment centre in Surrey. The charity emphasises that
it is non-political but recognises that those who are called on to fight may suffer physical or mental damage
which requires specialist treatment.
