Evesham Editorial 27th May, 2016 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016

CHILDREN of all ages are invited to become a medieval monk for the day at St Lawrence’s Church in Evesham.

Families will be able to experience a day in the life of a medieval monk on Friday (June 3) between 11am and 3pm with a host of free activities including quill writing, craft activities and dressing up.

Children will be able to make a ‘medieval’ keepsake to take home with them.

St Lawrence Church is cared for by The Churches Conservation Trust, the national charity that protects historic churches at risk.

The Trust has recently launched new interactive visitor displays in the church to tell the story of St Lawrence’s through the ages. The church is open daily and tours are available.

MORE THAN 350 Worcestershire Young Farmers will be showcasing their talents at their 68th Annual County Show tomorrow (Saturday).

This year the competition is stronger than ever, with all clubs wanting to give last year’s winners (Cutnall Green YFC) a run for their money.

As always, it will be a tug of war as everyone will be trying to outdo one another and there will also be a variety of stalls, a barbecue, licensed bar and children’s activities, including a bouncy castle.

Organised entirely by volunteer members, the show takes place at Park Farm, Kerswell Green, Worcester from 9am to 5pm.

Everybody is welcome

POLICE are warning dog owners not to leave their four-legged friends in cars with the weather set to become warmer.

Even if a car is parked in the shade, a car can still retain more heat than an open area which can pose a huge risk to a dog left inside.

And on longer journeys, dog owners are being advised to make sure water is available and that the windows are open or air conditioning is running to make sure dogs don’t overheat.

Anyone who sees a dog in distress in a hot car should call 999 in an emergency, or 101 if the situation is less serious.
