A bit about the event to help with inspiration:

25 May will see a garden party crossed with a mini-festival held in Victoria Park from 12-4 in the afternoon. Residents can expect to see community groups and bands performing in the park, alongside food and drink trucks and even ice cream.

The event is inspired by the traditional beating of the bounds ceremony that dates back 100 years, and will incorporate elements of the bridge crossing ceremony that was established in the 1990’s. The Ivy Bridge is a symbol of the town that might feature in your pictures, additional ideas could include our plans for gate dressing and a virtual duck race.

This event plans to build on the traditions and themes of the ‘Beating of the Bounds’, and commemorating the historical significance of the Ivy Bridge. For inspiration and more information on this do view the Ivybridge Heritage Website.Ivybridge Heritage – local history and archives collection (ivybridge-heritage.org)
