A VILLAGE’S traditional feast celebrations made a comeback after an absence of 100 years.

The Crick Village Feast, organised by the parish council and Crick History Society, ran over the weekend.

This was the first time the village had organised its feast for more than 100 years, and it featured a gala night, tree planting, flower displays, village market, displays of classic vehicles and a chance for the children to experience a Victorian classroom, and find out more about the village’s mythical treacle mines.

The main event of the weekend was the judging of the Crick feast puddings – special cakes made to a traditional rich bread pudding recipe typical of the area.

Jim Goodger, one of the organisers, said: “It was a good weekend and everyone enjoyed themselves.

“We’re still adding up how much money we raised, which will be split between local good causes including the church restoration project.

“Everyone who turned out had a smile on their face and seemed to be enjoying it all.

“The feast will be repeated.”
