Tug of War event to mark East Keswick’s New Year

It’s been a tradition for many years to mark the New Year with a tug of war tournament between teams representing the two village pubs. This year, the event is planned for 3pm New Years Day at the junction of Main Street with The Paddock. Traditionally womens and children’s teams also take part making a truly family event with giveaway sweets for children, a charity raffle and auction. Spectators normally move on to either of the village pubs and everyone is welcome to this fun event which raises money for the Candlelighters charity.
