"Schools Out - Sports Day" Little Mill Village Hall

We had  a lovely afternoon at our Centenary Sports day on Saturday outside Little Mill Village Hall.  We were lucky with the weather and the sun shone.  We had a great afternoon with much laughter especially, in the Walking Netball taster sessions, egg and spoon races and dressing up races.  Tea/coffee and delicious cakes were served.  A huge thank you to everyone who attended the Centenary Sports day and for your continuing support.

Below are some photos taken at the  event
