Dobcross fete is riding into town again on 23 June with a ‘Yee haw!’ The popular annual fair which is organised by Friends of Dobcross School (FODS) will be a fully themed Wild West Fest complete with Rodeo Bull, Gold Panning and Horse Shoe Toss.
From 1 – 5pm, at Holy Trinity School, aspiring cowboys and indian’s can pit their wits against the Cowboy Bungee Run and Western Assault Course, race on Bouncing Broncos and slip down the Wild West Slide. They can try their hand at archery, climb Spirit Mountain and then take a well-earned break at the Watering Hole for drinks, BBQ food and ice-cream. Those who are feeling less energetic can kick back and enjoy ‘hoe-down’ with Oldham Music School, Infinity Dance and Holy Trinity Choir entertaining the crowds from the live entertainment stage.
There will also be a wide range of traditional side stalls including Pin the Badge on the Sherriff, Apple Bobbing and Bottle Tombola. Not forgetting the school’s Grand Draw generously supported by local businesses, with over 30 fantastic prizes including a helicopter flight and hire of a Ford V8 Mustang.
Chair of FODS Claire Hilton said “It is set to be a fantastic day, with fun for all the family. The event will raise money for the school to spend on much needed improvements to their practical area and library.
“Unlimited ride wristbands will be on sale at £10 per child ahead of the event, £12 on the day. These offer great value for money, with eight attractions included in the price. Entrance is 50p for children, £1 for adults, with a special family ticket on sale at just £3.”
