On the last Sunday of July or the first Sunday of August every alternate year, Millington village celebrates Yorkshire Day.  

 

Formerly known as Millington Parish Fair, in 1993 the Fair had a Produce Show, Exhibiton of Handicrafts and Floral Display, Children`s Craft and Baking Competitions, Pet Show, Children`s Sports, 5 a side Football and a Tug of War,

a Millington Wood Walk and an Evening Barbecue.    

 

Over the years some things have stayed the same, a few have changed, and on Sunday 30th July 1995

Tom`s Haymen,  "a treat not to be missed",  danced outside the Gate Inn at 12.30.

 

By 1998 (a year was missed), the Parish Fair was better known as Yorkshire Day:  the Millington Wood Walk gone,  but with the additions of a Hill Run, Treasure Hunt, Children`s Fancy Dress, and the Betty Clarke Village Tea - all long lasting events .........
