Tea on the Green

Sunday 2nd June 3pm Rampton Village Green. A joint effort by the ’77 Committee and the Rampton Fairies. A traditional cream tea if you like tradition, and a glass of fizz if you think tradition needs to be picked up and dragged into the 21st century. There will be some amusements organised for children and a bring and buy plant stall so you can unload all those tomato plants.

Rampton Relay

The annual race was held on 9th September (postponed from April). 28 runners took part either as teams of four running one lap each or as individual runners running one or more laps. The course was altered to avoid calves grazing the small field, but by a strange quirk of the Rampton system of measurement the course remained exactly one Rampton mile in length. All runners performed extremely well this year, but we would like to give special mention to our fastest man (Alex Hunt, time 6:00), fastest woman (Tessa Mould, 7:28), fastest family (The Moulds, 33:23), smallest runner (Emily Osborne, 11:23) and the winners of the Rampton Educational Foundation Shield for Primary aged children (March Athletics Club, 34:33). All proceeds from the event will be donated to Papworth Hospital Pulmonary Fibrosis Support Group. We hope to see you all again next April!!

Family Christmas Party.

This year’s party will be on 10th December between 3:30 and 5:30. The party is aimed at younger children accompanied by an adult; there will be games, nibbles and soft drinks. We have asked Father Christmas if he will call in but he tells us his sleigh has failed its MOT and unless he can get the brakes fixed children may have to wait until April to get their presents. It would help us to plan the event if you would let us know if you want to come, call Judy on the number below.
