LAST weekend Sherston’s Pop Up village event (POP) returned with the village taken over with events, workshops, stalls and entertainment.

It all began last Friday (May 17) and ran over the the weekend with 49 pop-up shops with hundreds of people lining the streets and taking part in a huge range of activities.

Organiser Kirsty Strachan said: “The whole community came together for Sherston POP over the weekend of May 17-19.

“It helped to raise money for Sherston Primary School and Sherston Village Hall.

“At the heart of POP is bringing people together to enjoy some fantastically eclectic experiences all run by ordinary people!”

She said Sherston people opened up their homes and gardens for the weekend and shared their time and talents.

With over 50 difference experiences to enjoy including school teachers running the Circus of Science, parents helping children make and float a boat on the river, and the Scouts sharing campfire skills,.

“The Womens’ Institute taught craft skills, while school parents put on a fabulous family show.

“It was a real community effort with each POP lasting only three hours it was a race to get around them all.”

On the Friday in Sherston Village hall parents of the school children put on a show of short funny sketches, and performed a series of songs.

Saturday saw Davey’s Disco Bingo in the village hall with cocktails, dancing, chip butties and bingo while on Sunday there was a treasure trail to complete the weekend.
