Light refreshments, prosecco and wine will be available and a cash raffle during the evening will offer prizes that include a three-course meal for two and a bottle of wine at The Olive Branch in Clipsham.

The aim of the A Summer’s Evening of Entertainment is to raise funds towards the upkeep of Clipsham Yew Tree Avenue. Although managed by volunteers, the free-to-visit attraction needs maintenance by professional topiarists at a cost of £20,000 a year.

It takes place on Saturday, June 1, from 6.30pm in St Mary’s Church, Clipsham.

Tickets cost £10 from Bytham Community Shop, by phoning 07885 046449 or by emailing info@yewtreeavenue.co.uk
