"This year's Festival proved to be a great success with plenty of sunshine, activities and entertainment to suit all the Community. We are indebted to the tireless work put in by the Committee volunteers and over the weekend by an extra band of helpers including the Rotary Club, Army cadets and local residents.
Sincere thanks to our sponsors, local traders and businesses without whom we could not stage such a growing Festival.
This is a weekend which brings together the whole Community and we are grateful for their support and generosity.
We will soon be getting ready to stage the 10th Stockton Heath Festival but a few weeks rest feels well deserved"
On the finale night with Abba's Angels £399.50 was raised in aid of John Holt Cancer Support Foundation and Alison Broadbent from the Committee is presenting a cheque on Friday morning between 11am and noon.
In Partnership with the Slug & Lettuce, Stockton Heath the magnificent sum of £1500 was raised in aid of MacMillan Cancer Support during the Comedy Night on Thursday 30th June.
After the Festival the Stockton Heath Festival cake, kindly donated to us by Waterfield's Family Bakers was presented to L & M Healthcare, Gainsborough House. (see picture)
