Bat­tle of the Bands Pon­tard­du­lais and Hendy Dis­trict Fes­ti­val com­mit­tee held two pub­lic meet­ings dur­ing Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary to dis­cuss new ac­tiv­i­ties for the com­mu­nity. The Fes­ti­val Com­mit­tee has been run­ning for over 50 years or­gan­is­ing sum­mer ac­tiv­i­ties in the com­mu­nity. Their main an­nual event has tra­di­tion­ally been a car­ni­val pa­rade with a sum­mer fete in the park. Nor­mally the field ac­tiv­i­ties finish at 6pm. This year fol­low­ing the pub­lic meet­ing the com­mit­tee an­nounced the tra­di­tional pa­rade would not take place, but the sum­mer fete would still con­tinue. The com­mit­tee has been busy or­gan­is­ing the sum­mer fete and many ac­tiv­i­ties and stalls have al­ready been booked. The com­mit­tee has teamed up with the help of Pon­tard­du­lais Rugby Club and is pleased to an­nounce that the fete will be big­ger and bet­ter than pre­vi­ous years. Af­ter the tra­di­tional af­ter­noon fete and show for all the fam­ily to en­joy, there will be a party on the pitch in the evening with live mu­sic. Pon­tard­du­lais Rugby Club is hold­ing a Bat­tle of the Bands through­out May. The win­ning band will be in­vited to play at the sum­mer event, which will be tak­ing part on Satur­day, June 29. Lo­cal bands are in­vited to en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion — the win­ning band will also be of­fered a paid gig at the rugby club later in the year. For more de­tails on the tour­na­ment, bands are in­vited to email [email protected]­tard­du­lais-rfc. co.uk or see the Pon­tard­du­lais and Hendy Fes­ti­val Face­book page.
