Rolling the barrel in 2000 AD

We have featured barrel rolling in Market Lavington in many of our previous blogs. The tradition had been an inter pub competition but, over the years, the village pub total had dwindled to one, The Green Dragon, which would not provide a viable competition.

So, in the millenium year, any team of four rollers could enter in the Village Festival event.

Our newspaper cutting reminds us that only one team entered. However, members of the audience were invited to make up teams and the event went on to be a success.

Links to previous entries about barrel rolling include Barrel rolling – 1984, Barrel rolling – 1983, Rolling the barrels, Roll out the Barrel and Barrel Rolling,
