The World Wellington Boot Throwing Championship is back in town on Saturday, 9th September at Court Fields School, Mantle Street, Wellington from 12noon.
Organiser Suzanna White said, “This family fun day will have special visitors this year as Kevin and Stuart Minion will be there for people to meet and have their photos taken.
“The event will be opened by Wellington’s Mayor, Councillor Gary James before Wellington Majorettes provide a colourful introduction to the boot-throwing.
“There’s also a Dog Show organised by SOS Romanian Dog Rescue – and another new addition is ‘Have-a-go Archery’.
“There’ll be bouncy castles, a children’s entertainer, bar, hog roast, live music, Wellington Silver Band, a raffle (the proceeds of which are going to Wellington Children’s Centre) and a variety of other stands.
“Entry to the event is free but there is a small charge for entering the competitions.
We aim to provide something for everyone at a small cost to visitors and competitors.”
