Newcomers’ Event returns to Child Okeford


been since a Newcomers’ Event has been held in Child Okeford but, on Saturday 9th September, it returned!
There were 20 stands filling the village hall advertising village activities ranging from gardening to Subbuteo, and badminton to amateur dramatics – an impressive range of options, terrific for anyone looking to try something new this autumn.

Child Okeford residents were excited to welcome village newcomers

The event was to welcome new residents to the village, to show off what Child Okeford has to offer and to encourage new membership for the clubs. Despite the name, everyone was welcome at the event – old and new residents alike – and though the event clashed with the Cheese Festival in Sturminster Newton on the same day, plenty of people came along.
The organisers say they won’t leave it so long next time!
