Welcome to the Events page. For every project it helps to have a core team of volunteers who help plan and run the event. This means you only commit to that event. If you have an interest in planning, running or taking part in events at County level we would love to hear from you.
We would also like any ideas of events that you would like to see County put on. Have a look at what events are currently on and get in touch using the events email.
