Craigs Parish Church Vintage Fete 2019 was a huge success!

Craigs Parish Church Vintage Fete returned after 30 years and was a massive success!

On Saturday 22nd June 2019, Craigs Rectory field stepped back in time – after some 30 years their Vintage Fete returned.

The sun shone, the people came and over 70 vintage tractors travelled along the road through Cullybackey and up to the Rectory Field. This was followed by a variety of vintage cars, motorbikes and even two steam powered traction engines which sat proudly in the grounds of the Rectory.

The crowds were entertained by the Alistair Scott Ceilidh band and by David Henderson while they sat on bails of hay waiting for the much-anticipated Hog Roast sponsored by Cranswick Foods and supplied by McMasters Butchers, Whitehead.

It was great to get support from the local businesses who came along and local crafters selling their wares. The children also had fun in the sun with a bouncy helter skelter and disco dome. There was a Colour Run organised by the Ballymena Running Club and even Mayor Maureen Morrow enjoyed soaking the Rector. Our parish ladies were over run at the cake stall, tuck shop and in the Craigs Vintage Tea Tent. The criac was mighty as they would say!

A big thank you from Rev Adrian Halligan to all who made the Craigs Vintage Fete 2019 a huge success.

All in all, a great day for Craigs Parish Church and for the community of Cullybackey. A big thank you from the Rev Adrian Halligan to all who organised, supported and came along for what was a memorable day. Watch this this space for the next Craigs Vintage Fete which will return 2021.
