Saturday 20th April from 2pm to 6pm

Join us for our annual egg throwing championships at The Heron Inn. Can you beat the current record of 160 yards? Reigning champion and local hero Graham Hill will be competing again this year.

The rules are simple, you and your partner will throw a raw egg to each other, if you catch the egg, you move back one yard. If you drop or smash you egg, the current position will be noted and entered into the competition.

All proceeds are donated towards local charities and community projects.

If weather permits, we will have our barbecue outside in "The Nest" cooking up some eggcellent dishes from our chef/owner Nick Hemming.

For more information, call The Heron Inn on 01872 272773
