The amount raised by the ‘Sark to the Rescue’ calendars is going to be announced on Friday 14th February about 8.15pm at the Island Hall. The calendar was created by Sark photographers Lydia Bourne and Sue Daly and features members of Sark’s emergency services in ‘Calendar Girl’ style scenes. It’s been a big seller and half of the proceeds will go to the Lymphoma Charity and the other half to Sark’s emergency services. The project was filmed for the BBC’s ‘An Island Parish’ and after the cheque presentation the programme will be shown live at 8.30 on the big screen at the Hall.
The dates for most of this summer’s events here on Sark have now been set and it looks like being another busy one. Wildflower Fortnight will take place from 3rd to 18th May, when our bluebells and countless other wildflowers will be at their best, with a series of guided walks and an exhibition at the Visitor Centre. The Scarecrow Trail is on from 24th May to 2nd June and over the weekend of 31st May to 1st June there will be an Arts and Crafts weekend. The Midsummer Show will be on 25th to 26th June and the Grand Autumn Show is on 27th to 28th August, both a must if you want to see the best flowers and produce Sark has to offer. Sheep Racing takes place on the weekend of the 18th to 20th July and there’s a Taste of Sark week from 14th to 21st June. As well as all of these great events there are guided history, garden and natural history walks throughout the spring and summer and Courtyard Markets outside the Visitor Centre every other Saturday.
