Clowning around at a previous Denver Family Fun Day.

Teams are being urged to sign-up for next weekend’s Denver It’s a Knockout.

The fun event is one of the attractions at the village family fun day on Sunday, July 21.

The event will be held at the village playing field from 10am to 4pm and includes a host of fun attractions.

There will be a dog show, stalls, funfair rides, fun with Razz the clown, a car boot sale, a bar, barbecue, and music from Jess Davidson and the Funky Waves.

Teams are being sought for the knockout competition, which last year was won by a squad from SCL Interiors.

The business has already entered a team for this year’s challenge and other teams signed-up include representatives from Arbuckles, Alive Leisure and Denver Bell Football Club.

Teams can comprise 10 to 12 members. Challengers can be aged from 14. There will be seven games and the event is expected to last for around three hours.

There is space for 12 teams to take part.

The organisers have said the cost for a professional company to run the event is around £3,000 and teams are being asked to contribute £250 to take part and help cover costs.

Anyone interested in registering a team or finding out more about the tournament is asked to contact James Armitage at
