Bawtry’s annual sports day and gala will not be held this year because of a lack of volunteers to help with preparations.

The event has been held for the past nine years but with only three volunteers available organiser BARS has decided it is impossible to complete the necessary initial arrangements.

But it is hoped it is only a temporary setback and that sufficient helpers can be found to put on an extra special day next year for the Queen’s Jubilee Year.

Anyone who is prepared to spend four or five days between January and May next year helping out should contact secretary Kerry Haslam on 01302 714001.
