  1. An annual carnival usually held in June. This year's Carnival is 20th June 2020. There is also a fundraising craft fair on the last Saturday in November 2020 at Berry Brow Methodist Church. Stall enquiries for both are welcome as are volunteers to help on the day.

    Everyone is welcome to Committee meetings. Many hands make light work! They take place at 1 p.m. on the first Saturday of each month at the Railway, School Lane, Berry Brow - you may want to ring Carol first on 07740 425093 just to check.

    The Carnival is to bring fun to the community and to involve local groups as much as possible. Everyone is welcome to this family fun day with something for everyone from traditional children's games, tug o war, refreshments, 3 a side football, Welly Wanging; egg throwing and there will be a variety of stalls and events to suit all interests and age groups including the now annual graffiti board.

    As the Carnival is held in a field wheelchair access is difficult but stewards will be willing to help. If weather is poor the event will take place at Berry Brow Methodist Church, Birch Road, HD4 7LP which has fully accessible disabled toilets and access to and around the building.

    Contributions to cake stall and tombola are most welcome as are offers of help on the stalls on the day. Please contact us for more details.
