Rainworth is counting down the hours until its big day on Saturday when it stages its annual Renfest event at the village hall.
This year’s celebration takes the form of a street party from 11.30 am until late, featuring a host of activities to raise money to buy one or two outdoor defibrillators for the village.
There will be live music all day and night at the hall, with a disco karaoke, and also a real-ale beer festival at The Inkpot pub.
The village’s petanque club will be hosting competitions, have-a-go sessions, a barbecue, hook-a-duck (in a real pond!) and other children’s activities, while the youth club will be offering face painting, pebble painting and glitter tattoos.
Other attractions will include fairground rides, food and craft stalls, a petting zoo, a treasure hunt and demonstrations or exhibitions by Natalie Smith’s school of dancing, first responders and firefighters.
Last year, Renfest raised more than £3,000 for a good cause. One of the organisers this time, Ian Randall, said: “Please come down and join in the fun to help us to put a defibrillator in the village.
“Nobody knows how important they are until they need one in a hurry. We only have to save one life to make a difference.”
