The pulling power behind Birchover carnival’s fund-raising efforts was on show this month.
A tug-of-war competition organised by the carnival committee and held outside the Red Lion attracted six teams of competitors.
After many rounds of fierce competition (and a re-start due to sloping ground!), The Chain Gang (led by Martin Pickford) were the named the victors. Their prize was beer, kindly donated by Thornbridge Brewery, Bakewell and The Committee.
The event raised over £200 and the Carnival Committee would like to thank: Costa Coffee Bakewell, Pedal Peak District Cycle Hire, The Express Car Wash, Matlock and Gulliver’s Kingdom, Matlock Bath for their kind raffle prize donations
