Bygones at Ufford


Ufford Bygones and Fun Day is a great day of family fun and entertainment will take place at Crown Farm in the village of Ufford, near Woodbridge, on Sunday 14th July to raise funds for St Elizabeth Hospice, Ipswich. There will be a wide range of games and activities with many great prizes to be won, including a prize-draw with cash prizes totalling over £200.

uffordThis year, being the 11th year, organisers have lined-up a great programme of bygones and attractions for the whole family. There will be steam and traction engines, static displays of vintage tractors and old motorcycles, over 150 classic vehicles from the 1920s through to the 1970s, and minis from the local mini club.

There will be a fun dog show, where dogs from the village will be judged and prizes will be given for the best in show. There will also be breeds of heavy horses on show. You will have the chance to drive a crazy mini through an obstacle course. Sounds easy? Well come along and try it; the car has been modified to go in the opposite direction to which you steer it. Or why not put your and football skills to the test and win prizes on the target football competition. Children, and adults, can operate a digger to scoop up a plastic duck, and as ever there will be the hugely popular bouncy castle.

There will be around 40 arts and crafts stalls from local businesses. And performances by Suffolk Soul Singers, The Broadside Boys and belly dancing will keep visitors entertained.

Refreshments, including traditional ploughman’s lunch, ice creams, and tea and coffee will be available for purchase throughout the day. And if you need a bit more sustenance, there is a hog roast and a BBQ selling beef burgers and hot dogs, all of which has been sourced locally. The refreshments have all been carefully chosen from local suppliers so if you have to travel miles to enjoy the day in Ufford you can be assured your chosen fare has not!

So come along to this event, have a great day, and help raise funds for such a good cause. With your help, organisers hope to push the total funds raised by this event over its 11-year history to over £60,000.
