The Green May is synonymous with this time of year as was chosen as the symbol for West Rasen’s annual fayre as the emerging green of early spring cover’s winter’s bareness - the time to herald the beginning of summer with an event which celebrates Maytime.

And the 13th Green Man Day will be held at West Rasen Heritage Centre this Bank Holiday Monday, May 5, from 1pm to 4pm, with something for all the family, adults and children alike.

Home-made refreshments will be served in the hall, with traditional games, including skittles and Aunt Sally in the centre grounds.

For the children there will be a bouncy castle, welly wanging and fishing for 
ducks.

There will also be a plant stall, raffle, tombola, spinning wheel demonstration, old postcard display, preserves and Poacher cheese on sale, and much more.

And around the village, there will be Green Men made out of willow and decorated with greenery.

This Green Man Day is the main money raising event of the year for the upkeep of the historic heritage centre and village hall.
