COMMUNITY leaders in Hutton are taking steps to revive the village's traditional May Day event.
The parish council is spearheading an organising committee to make sure the 30-year-old parade and fair returns this summer.
Last year the event was cancelled for only the second time in its history after uncertainties over preparation and venue.
Ward Councillor Terry Porter said: "It's one of the key events of the parish calendar and we were disappointed it didn't go ahead last year.
"Its one day which brings the village together and gives community groups the chance to show who they are and raise some money."
He added the parade would take the traditional route round the village, not the shortened version used in recent years.
He said: "I hope the event will rekindle past success and secure its future."
People who want to help organise the show or who have ideas for the event, which will take place on the scout hut field, should contact the parish council on 01934 412683.
