Stoke Goldington has a long history of coming together as a community to celebrate events.
An annual Steam Rally and Country Fayre was held at Westside Farm, Stoke Goldington between 1976 and 2012 which showcased UK heritage in the form of Steam Engines, Stationary Engines, vintage tractors and other agricultural machinery. The show was run by villagers and exhibit experts from the surrounding villages, and was set up to provide funds for the Stoke Goldington Village Hall which was opened in 1976.
Despite this event no longer taking place villagers still join together, on marked occasions, to show what a strong community spirit we have. This can be seen, in no better way, than by how the residents of Stoke Goldington celebrated VE Day 75 (May 2020) while adhering to social distancing measures in place due to Covid19.
Continuing with the strong sense of community spirt Stoke Goldington residents decided to arrange a Fund Raising event over a week in June 2020. Through donations, sponsored walks, open gardens, plant and bric a brac sales money raised was donated to two chosen charities; Willen Hospice and Prostate Cancer UK. Watch the video blow to see what we got up too.
As time goes by we hope this page will grow with memories of events that take place in our village, Stoke Goldington.
