CVA Summer Fair – 17th Sept, 2-6pm

Just a quick request for residents of Cardrona to keep everything crossed for suitable weather next Saturday (17th Sept) for the Summer Fair. Almost everything is re-booked & note the new time: 2pm to 6pm.

Cardrona Summer Fair Cancellation

It’s with great regret that the CVA has been forced to cancel tomorrows Summer Fair due to the horrendous weather that is forecast for the afternoon. The toddlers group will be in the hall between 1 & 3pm to sell the cakes that have been prepared & also to run the tombola.
We’re looking at re-booking the activities for a Saturday in September, so hopefully we can hold this event in drier weather & hope people can still make it along!
Apologies to all those who were looking forward to this event – we really had no choice with the very high likelihood of heavy rain spoiling the sporting & other activities.

Calling all Cardrona Residents

We’re holding an open gathering this Friday in the village hall to explore ideas around events & activities that could be organised in the village this year. In particular, we’re hoping to discuss what form a summer event could take, so we’re looking for people with suggestions & people who can help co-ordinate/run things.

If you have ideas or would like to volunteer your time/skills, we’d be delighted to see you at the hall at 7.30 this Friday (18th March) – please let us know in advance is you wish to attend. Please pass this on to anyone you think may be interested – especially if they have been involved in previous village activities.

If you can’t attend but would still like to volunteer time or ideas, please send us a message to
