KEMPSHOTT Festival: Is taking place this Saturday, at Kempshott Village Hall, between noon and 5pm, where there will be a climbing wall, craft stalls, local Kempshott organisations (conservation groups, local police/Neighbourhood Watch representatives and other special interest groups etc) along with refreshments.

Kempshott Infant School children will be putting on a dance display and there is also a dog show, so please don’t leave your canine friends at home! It looks to be a fun day out for all ages – so why not pop along and enjoy the afternoon?

All proceeds from this event will be split equally between St Michael’s Hospice and Marwell Wildlife – so it is also raising money for good causes.

MORE advance dates for your diaries: Picnic In the Park will be held on Saturday, June 14, in Stratton Park, between noon and 3.30pm, so don’t forget to pack a picnic!

On Saturday, June 21, is the Kempshott Schools’ Summer Fair, which will take place on the school field between 1pm and 4pm.
