Cranbrook Day – the annual celebration of the cutting of the town’s first turf – has been confirmed for Sunday, June 25.

Running from noon to 6pm at the Cranbrook Education Campus, this year the organisers intend to boost the event, making it bigger and better than before.

It will comprise more than 60 stalls, two stages, inflatable games, bouncy castles, face-painting, games, sports events, barbecue, outside bar and more.

“This family fun day is marking the sixth year since the first ceremoniously cut turf, transforming Cranbrook from a mere concept into the beginning of a real town,” say the organisers. “Cranbrook Day is set to become a proud tradition in our town.”

Entry price is £1 per person. Under fives admitted free.

Community clubs, attractions and food vendors are being encouraged to attend.

Stalls are still available. To book one - and for more details - contact Todd Plant (07923 018267) or email: hello@cranbrook-rotary-club.co.uk.

n Last year’s Cranbrook Day was run by Cranberry Events. This group has been wound up, and the Rotary Club is now managing the annual event. Details: Facebook.com/cranbrook.rotary.club
