Last week’s Langar and Barnstone festival got off to a great start with the family fun gymkhana games raising £100 for Dove Cottage Day Hospice in Stathern.

The games, which were organised and sponsored by Barnstone Cement Works in Barnstone, included egg and spoon, hook the ring, sack race, bean bag races and an exciting obstacle course.

Participants were also invited to take a tour of the cement works, which included seeing the bagging facility, storage and distribution area and the Wiggly Waggly Way community footpath.

Chris Stephens, plant manager at Barnstone Cement Works, said: “We were pleased to be able to support Dove Cottage Hospice again through the funds raised. The hospice does some fantastic work with local people and this was part of our ongoing support for their essential work.”
