Cherished Vehicle and Farm Fun Day

Sunday 4th June

We will again be holding our ‘Cherished Vehicle and Farm Fun Day’ in 2017 and this year it will be on Sunday, 4 June. It will be open to the public from 11am and entry will be be the same as last year at £6 for adults with children under 10, free. We will once again be showcasing our prized farm machinery with several demonstrations throughout the day plus there will be craft stalls, BBQ and our popular hog roast. There is lots of things for all the family to see and do so why not pop along and help us raise money for the Chippenham Lions!

For those wishing to register a vehicle or to buy space for a stall or to buy advertising space in the brochure then e-mail us on: cvs@chippenhamlions.org.uk

‘We estimate that about 3000 adults people were present at the Chippenham Lions ‘Cherished Vehicle and Farm Fun Day’ on Sunday 5 June 2016 at  Allington Farm Shop. This was the fifth year we had held this event in conjunction with Allington Farm Shop and we were able to build on the success of the previous years to deliver an event which had something for everyone – the cars, the fairground, the craft, charity and trade stands, farm animals and farm demonstrations. And this year we added a circus workshop and a dog event. The event was run for charities and initial indications are that the income could be in excess of £11,000 and all the money raised will go to Lions Charities – local, national and international.’

JULY

Timmy’s Chillies Tasting

Sat 29th July

1030am – 230pm

‘We use only fresh fruit as it delivers such fabulous flavour to our products. By using more than 50% fresh fruit we are able to keep the chilli hit on the finish. Many bigger companies use frozen and graded shred for their marmalade products, concentrated juices and chemical preservatives. In doing so many natural flavours are lost. We use only fresh fruit, sugar and natural apple pectin as a gelling agent, keeping all the fruity flavours for you to enjoy. Our products are carefully handmade in 120 jar batches, suitable for vegans and gluten free.’

Join us and sample some of Tim’s delicious jams & marmalades and meet the man himself

AUGUST

Pipers Crisps Tasting

Friday 4th August

11am – 2pm

The Pipers story began in 2004 when three farmers – Alex Albone, Simon Herring and James Sweeting – joined forces to produce great tasting, quality crisps using local potatoes. We work with carefully selected flavour partners who care as much about their products as we do about ours. We are all passionate people driven by one thing and that is to deliver the best taste and quality possible – no gimmicks.This passion for taste and quality is common across the Pipers team. It could be the people who sell our crisps in pubs, hotels, delis, farm shops, garden centres, museums and more. Or it could be our own talented people working hard in a range of exciting careers at Pipers to make our products even better. ‘

 It’s about crisps as they should taste.
