It’s that time again when the village gears up for the annual Festival Week.

The 2008 Queen Jennifer Cessford who must be thanked for the enthusiasm shown whilst attending the various events during the year handed over the sash to this years Queen Silvie Henderson ready for the first event on Saturday the 1st August.
Festival Week 2009 Football Competition
After a damp showery morning the weather changed for the better on the afternoon of Saturday 1st August 2009. This was the day for the Morebattle Festival Week Football Competition with over 30 players split between the 2 age groups of under 14 and 14 and over took place. The younger age group gave an excellent display of good sportsmanship and football ability with the eventual winners in this age group being. Team Captain Toni DiLorenzo, Stuart Banks, Angus Thomson, Greg Cessford, Charlie Stewart, Liam Moriarty and Ryan Moriarty.
In the older age group there were some good individual and team performances with the eventual winners Team Captain Carlo DiLorenzo Jean de Bolle, James Gray, Joe O’Mara and Liam Burke.
We would like to thank all those who came along and took part and those who came to support this second event on the Festival week calendar.
