ALDERTON 5K RUN, SAT 16TH SEPTEMBER 2023, 11AM START
Alderton's fast, flat (ish!) and super-friendly run last year raised a record £2,737, every penny of which went to Alderton Acorns. The course is ideal for clocking a good time and we welcome all runners from complete beginners to experienced club runners. Find out more and enter online at www.alderton5k.co.uk.
PLEASE AVOID BECKFORD ROAD
Our paramount concern is for the safety of our 200 runners and we'd appreciate if local residents could please keep Beckford Road towards Beckford clear of cars and use an alternative route.
The course starts at the Gardeners Arms, goes past Great Washbourne then turns back to the finish on Alderton Playing Field. Access to Beckford Road will be limited at the following times:
We're excited to confirm the details of the Alderton Coronation Street Party on Sunday May 7th. Bring your own lunch and join our community picnic along pretty Church Road, starting at 12:30. You'll be accompanied by super-talented local singer-songwriter Daisy Kane.
Throughout the afternoon performer Nula Hula will be wow'ing us with a hula display and we'll have traditional entertainments like hook-a-duck and tin can alley. For our younger residents, there are circus skills workshops, face painting, and loads of crafting. There's no need to book and all of this is completely free of charge.
There'll be plenty of refreshments with a cake stall, ice cream stand and well-stocked bar, all of which you'll need to pay for (sorry!).
ALL ALDERTON RESIDENTS ARE WELCOME!
This is an open invitation for everyone in our community, villagers new or old, to come together. If you're new to the village or haven't been to one of our community events we'd love you to come. To help us all get to know each other we'll ask everyone to wear a name sticker.
If you'd like to come but haven't got anyone to picnic with message us and we'll do some picnic matchmaking. You're also welcome to get involved and help on the day.
