Each year The Battle Muffin Club volunteers to support the Town’s Abbey Green events
For the Easter Marbles event the Club sponsor the Children’s Marbles Scramble, and the club enters both Men’s and Women’s Teams in the Marbles Competition. By tradition, the women seem to excel, either winning or coming close, whilst the men’s team consider themselves very lucky to survive just the first round which has only happened once in the last few years! But what the Muffin men lack in ability in the Marbles competitions they make for in skill and dedication, running both a Candy Floss stall and a Roll-a-Penny stall at the Town’s events.
These stalls add content to the events for the benefit of the Town generally. They are a popular attraction especially for the under 10s (and many adults!) and raise significant sums for local charities.
For the Medieval Fayre at the end of May each year, two stalls are manned for two full days by Muffin men for the popular Roll-a-Penny and Candy Floss traditions. The Club members will also assist as Parade Marshals.
The Battle Muffins are back in action again for the “Battle Lights On” event at Christmas time manning the two familiar stalls and again to assist as Parade Marshals if required.
