Raunds mayor Cllr Helen Howell will be hosting the mayor’s show for the second year in aid of the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.

The aim of the free family fundraiser, which is taking place from midday until 5pm on Sunday, April 30, is to try and bring a country show to the town.

There will be rides, attractions, a cake baking competition, various stalls, a stage and arena with demonstrations and live entertainment throughout the day, as well as fun and games for children to enter.

Cllr Howell said: “Last year’s show was a great success and enjoyed by everyone who attended.

“This year we hope to make the event bigger and better with this great opportunity to bring the community together over this bank holiday weekend while raising money for a very worthy charity.

“I hope the residents of Raunds and surrounding towns and villages will show their support for this event by coming out and enjoying themselves.”

Attractions on the day will also include dog agility, falconry display, tug-of-war, a selection of food and a beer tent.

And the mayor’s show is taking place on the final day of the Raunds Musical Festival, which starts on April 27.
