The Hog Roast and Live Band
The Hog Roast and Live Band
With the marque unusable the Hog Roast and live band's venue was changed to St. Andrew's Church - greateful thanks to Rev. Judith. This was something else - a terrific venue and super music by a very accomplished band in a magnificent setting.
Church Service

On Sunday the breakfast and Church service was a fitting start to Sunday and well attended.
Village Fun Day
Village Fun Day
On Sunday afternoon the Village Fun day began with 'Nutty Noah' entertaining both children and adults with some hilarious and clever moments. This was followed by the Rounder’s Challenge - and Cross managed to take the lead and win the cup from last year's winners - Compton Bishop. The coconut shy and sponge soaking proved a great hit. It was lovely to see so many new faces.

Why we exist

Cross is in a fantastic position, right under the Mendips, and lots of great people live in the village - but we don't have enough facilities to serve the community.

Most people have to get in their cars to get to play areas, shops, cafes, to play sports and go to work. As a result, we don't get to see each other very often. Several families came together with common concerns, to see what can be done to solve the problem. We  started meeting in May 2008 to plan actions that would bring people together and generate ideas and support.
