Bun Throwing preliminaries

April 25, 2011

Missing the Bun Throw
This coming weekend will be the annual Quasimodo Fair in our twin town, Argentan, and as every year a couple of people from the twinning society, and a couple of civic guests, are going across. This year Ann Dodd – pictured with Peter – will be one of the twinning society members. Unfortunately she will miss the bun throw on Friday as a consequence.
Missing the Bun Throw
The Bun Throw will be at 6.00pm on Friday 29th April – a few hours after the Royal Wedding proper. There will be an essential safety briefing for councillors, freemen, and the raffle winner, a little while before the throw. Buns will be thrown from the scaffolding just below the level of the roof.

    Local ads (Mill Road) suggest that the bun-throwing will be between 16.30 and 17.00…
    Any ideas?

    The bun throwing will start at 1800, there are activities and entertainment on the square during the day too i think.
