Wakes Day in Belper

families are invited to evoke memories of the 1950s at a day of sporting fun for Belper’s Wakes Day next month.

The event, run by Belper Town Council, Belper Meadows Cricket Club and Village Games Derbyshire, is on Sunday, June 5, on Belper Meadows sports ground at 11am.

A council spokeswoman said: “It aims to capture the spirit of Belper in the 1950s when Wakes Week attracted many of the town’s people to participate in a wide range of sporting events.”

Children from Belper’s primary schools will take part. There will also be family games, bouncy castles, a barbecue and stalls.

If you can volunteer on the day, call the council on 01773 822116, or email belpertowncouncil@btconnect.com.
