Wild Peak are having a Fundraiser on Saturday July 6th to raise money to support local grass roots projects. We wanted to let you know so you can save the date if you are interested in coming along, or getting involved with providing any entertainments, helping cook, running a stall, etc. We are looking for anyone who might want to perform, or help create some entertainments, or share info re their project-get in touch!
We are hoping people will arrive early afternoon on Saturday 6th July- things will carry on through to the evening (with the option to camp over for people who want to stay the night…)
What’s the plan?
At the moment it is in the early stages (i.e. just fixing a date) but we imagine it will involve some relaxing in the field, enjoying the mid Summer vibe, listening to live music and poetry, ad-hoc games and entertainments during the day ( ideas and offers welcome-it’s going to be a bit D.I.Y!), and refreshments available all day, and an early evening meal available later (all for donations…) All the food will be Vegan. Veggies Catering Campaign from Nottingham will be providing veggie burgers, snacks & other #FoodByVeggies in the afternoon.
Anyone who fancies camping over is very welcome-we will be asking for a small donation (approx £3.00 a pitch)…
Entertainments, music, info stalls;
– if you feel like you might be up for playing some music, helping with any other entertainments, if you have information about any projects that you’d like to share and get more people involved with, or if you have an idea for a stall/activity for the day to help raise money, then drop us an email and let us know…
We are hoping that evening music and camp fire vibes can continue after dinner, but all amplified music will be going off at 11.30 so people and kids can sleep!
What to bring?
– money to spend on food and refreshments, a tent if staying over, (plus warm bedding, a torch, wellies if staying late as the grass is long and gets dewy, waterproofs-not that it will rain and we will also have structures up so rain would not stop play, and your own breakfast supplies), ideas for fun in a field and stuff to make it happen!
Getting here, transport and parking;
We are trying to minimise traffic and Wyver Lane is potholed and narrow with limited passing spaces, so if possible come by bike, foot or car share, if you can…
We’re at; Lawn Cottage, Wyver Lane, Belper. DE56 2EF. Once on Wyver Lane, keep going till you get to the very end of the track. You will see a sign directing you to where to park. Don’t give up half way, we are almost 2 miles down the lane, and drive slow if in a vehicle-there’s pot holes a plenty…
N.B. if you are coming by car PLEASE DO NOT PARK ON WYVER LANE as there is very limited parking space for the cottages on Wyver Lane and it therefore needs to be for residents only-please help us to keep it sweet with our neighbours!
If you need to bring a car then please bring it all the way down the lane to Lawn Cottage, where there will be a space you can park it on the field-cheers!
The housing co-op is adjacent to a wildlife area and we are surrounded by ground nesting birds that don’t mix well with dogs. If you can’t come without your dog then it must be kept on a lead at all times whilst on site.
For more info, to offer entertainments or other help, to let us know you don’t want to receive any more info, or to let us know we have chosen a date that clashes with a thousand other things that everyone will need to go to instead please get in touch! ;
