Easter Eggstravaganza

Despite the weather, we had another wonderful turn-out at our Easter Eggstravganza with lots of decorated eggs for Councillor Richard Johns to judge – thank you Richard for Easter Egg prizes.  Excitement grew before the judging and then the Egg Rolling Races,  as Easter bonnets were decorated and little fingers had fun with colouring pens and stickers,
while a roaring trade was done in cakes and very pink biscuits, with plenty of coffee and tea. 
And then warmly dressed out into the cold for the races

Easter Eggstravaganza 17th March 2018

Yes it’s a bit early for Easter but we decided to use our usual Coffi Troddi in March for this year’s Easter Eggstravaganza.  It was brilliant fun last year so do come along to Coffi Troddi with eggs prepared.   Read all about it here and then look below for guidance on 


All the fun of the Fayre

There was something for everyone at Mitchel Troy Village Fayre – with traditional games,

a dog show, with a delightful collection of dogs of all shapes and sizes, with best in Show won by Max, a golden retriever belonging to Helen Elkins,

a tombola run by Mitchel Troy Pre-School and a raffle with some brilliant prizes donated by our sponsors – Handyman House, Green & Jenks, Millbrook Garden Centre, Paws, Premier Inn, Ancre Hill and Cllr. Richard John. Millbrook Garden Centre also sponsored the children’s Sow & Grow competition.  A separately raffled hamper, with charcuterie donated by Trealy Farm, organic veg donated by Square Farm and eggs donated by Helen Atton from Wonastow Mill, was very popular.

Other stalls included some wonderful face-painting, as shown on the front page of the Monmouthshire Beacon, a colourful and interesting stand from local charity, Hands Around the World, and a raffle of the harvest hamper from Jake Elliott that grew his £1 to well over £11 for his school.

Jake also won the children’s ladder game and his puppy Sky came second in the waggiest tail.

Meanwhile, inside the Hall the Village Produce Association stall advertised their Summer Show (in the Hall on Saturday August 19th), the cake stall with cakes donated by members of the Committee and others did a roaring trade and cups of tea and cream teas proved very popular.  As the afternoon drew on, the bar opened and the appetising smells from the BBQ reminded everyone to get a drink and relax with sausages & burgers.
