All funds raised on the day go towards the upkeep of two key village facilities used by many – the Parish Hall and Playing Fields so we really appreciate everyone’s support. Entry to the Street Market is with the programme, suggested donation £1 on the gate, children free.
We look forward to seeing you on the day and celebrating in true Austwick style!
