Village Day thanks

A big thanks to everyone who attended and helped make this year’s Village Day a great success. The weather was glorious, everyone seemed to have a good time – especially the youngsters – and our local schools benefited directly from the fundraising.

It was great to have our local MP Nick Herbert to open the event, and we are hoping that this piece will run in tomorrow’s County Times.

If you took any photos on Saturday, please send them to me at the address below, to form part of gallery for this year’s event.   Or even better, join our Thakeham Community Facebook page and post your pics there directly.

Looking forward, there will be a changed context for the 2018 Village Day, as Thakeham Primary School will by then be based at Rock Road, and other location options will be considered (including Abingworth football fields).  This gives an opportunity to review and further improve the event.  If you would like to get involved, please get in touch.
