The weather was perfect for this year’s ‘Big Do’, held on the afternoon of Saturday 2 July 2022, with the flower, produce and craft show held inside the same day in the Jubilee Hall. It was great to see so many people coming out into the sunshine at this, the first Big Do after the Covid epidemic.
Not only did lots of people enjoy themselves, the raffle raised £1,020 for the DEC for Ukraine* appeal, Warleggan Young Farmers raised over £300 from the barbecue for their chosen charities, and through the other stalls and activities the Jubilee Hall raised over £600 (exact figure to be announced here shortly). So a big THANK YOU to everyone involved.

Background to the Big Do
It’s been called the ‘Big Do in the Field’ ever since it was accidentally named as such by the late John Jory, when struggling to describe the kind of event we would have after it had been agreed no longer to hold the Carnival. The main attractions usually to be found at the Big Do are the dog-show, the stalls, barbecue, beer tent, teas, bottle stall, children’s races, etc. etc.
If you haven’t been to a Big Do before, have a look at reports and photos from previous Big Dos – such as the most recent one in Warleggan church field in 2019, or the earlier ones held in Mount in 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014 or 2013.
