Pig Club v2

The Resurrection

Marton pig

Marton Pig Club will be back soon! We anticipate starting the new rearing season in the Spring of 2022. Under new stewardship, we are currently looking for expressions of interest from those wishing to take part. If you haven’t already done so, please send your name and email address to sausages.marton -at- gmail.com.

We will be making a presentation in the Village Hall on Friday 15th October, starting at 7:00pm. All villagers will be welcome. Come along and find out how the club will be organised and run, including cost per pig, how that cost is determined and how the income will be spent. You will be able to ask questions which you may have and, for new members, meet folks who have taken part in previous pig club seasons and hear their experiences.

The bar will be open, for you to purchase your choice of refreshment!

Finally, don’t forget the vote for the name of the new Piggy Baton! Send your suggestions to sausages.marton -at- gmail.com before the village hall evening. On the night, cast your vote from the full list of suggestions. No prizes for the winner except the honour of having named the Piggy Baton!
