Summit Special Summer Fair in Denton this weekend

A climbing wall, arena events and dog display will be just some of the attractions at the Summit Special Summer Fair in Denton on Saturday June 8.

It will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the coronation of the Queen and the 60th anniversary of the ascent of Mount Everest.

The community sports day will raise money for Denton Church and the James Daniels Memorial Fund, which supports local sports.

The chair of the Summit Special is Everest mountaineer Cliff Dargonne, who lives in Denton.

It will run from 1pm to 5pm in Community Field and Tates Field, just off Avis Road, and is free to enter.

There will be a family relay event, tug of war, zumba taster and beer tent.

Organisers have set up a series of challenges for young people to take part in where they can win a burger or hot dog, plus rosettes, in return for a small donation.

Summit Special committee member Ann Saunders said: “There is something for everyone.”

Cliff added: “Expanding on the usual Church Fair, the Parochial Church Council have combined with the local community to organise a fun event for the whole village, and for anyone else who would like to take part and have a good time.

“There will be many ‘sporting challenges’ provided by local sports and social groups, for everyone to take part in.”

There will also be a bouncy castle, steam train, birds of prey, straw bale throwing and a beer tent.

Have a go at Archery or show your football and cricket skills.

And there will be dog agility and local dance troops.

The afternoon will conclude with a community barbecue.
