CASTLE CARY FRENCH MARKET
Don't miss Castle Cary's FRENCH MARKET on Sunday 9th June. Don't miss this exciting chance to enjoy real French fare (Can't you just smell the wonderful cheeses and charcuterie now?), plus the Anonymous Travelling Market will also be there with its unique mix of top class craft items and fun buyables. Watch out for posters giving more details. Bailey Hill, the Market Place and the High Street (but not Fore Street) will be closed to traffic from 7am to 5pm so that you can enjoy traffic-free shopping.
CASTLE CARY'S BIG PICNIC
On Sunday 2nd June communities all over UK are sharing a Big Lunch (it's an Eden Project initiative.) The Use Less Share More group thinks a BIG PICNIC in the Millennium Woodland behind All Saints' Church would be just the thing for Castle Cary.
Nobody's going to be selling anything, and the event is free. Just come along and be sociable. All ages welcome, but sorry, no dogs, no glassware and no smoking.
VOLUNTEERS WANTED - SINGING FOR THE BRAIN
A popular and well-respected Alzheimer’s Society service for people with dementia and their carers called Singing for the Brain® is recruiting for more volunteers to help at their local group. The group meets every Thursday from 2.00pm until 4.00pm at Caryford Community Hall in Caste Cary, Somerset.
Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds are needed to help with a variety of roles from meeting and greeting, to pouring tea and coffee, to talking with people with dementia and their relatives and carers to adding an extra voice, or musical talent to the group.
