The civic week football is on each evening at Victory Park. This is a keenly contested competition and a good crowd can be found shouting their team on each night!

The final is played on the Sunday afternoon between the two top teams.

All sorts of pets turn up for the pet show which is sponsored by The Pet Shop with prizes in each category.

Free tickets can be collected from the CAN Shop for the well catered, well attended and well entertained Senior Citizen Party!

The ACE triathlon was inaugurated last year and pedalling and paddling are just two of the events which had lots of fit youngsters taking part - well worth taking part or watching !

Civic Week just wouldn’t be Civic Week without the car treasure hunt. Well in excess of 20 cars take part each year and young and old thoroughly enjoy both the driving and the brain teasers set out for them to skilfully manoeuvre before time up.

Another keenly contested evening is the Pool Competition in the Hamilton Arms on Friday not forgetting the dominoes at the vaults on the following Monday.

The bowlers compete throughout the week with their final on Saturday evening.
