Haverhill’s Summer Bash takes place on the Recreation Ground on Sunday (19), with the first ever Haver5 fun run signalling the start of the day’s fun at 10am.

There is also a Tug of War and a full programme of musicians, bands, dancing and displays, refreshments, a raffle and a Lazy car Boot - no cars on until 8am, £6 for cars and £10 for larger vehicles.

The Haver5 costs £7 for under 16s and £12 for adults, with goody bags and medals for all finishers plus trophies for category winners.
