Village Day

Thakeham Primary School, Pre-School and Parish Council proudly present…



Plans and preparation are underway for Thakeham Village Day on Saturday 6 July .  Put it in your diary!  Our fundraising focus will, as usual, include helping Thakeham Primary School and Thakeham Pre-School, plus other projects (TBC).

In September 2018 we brought this event to the new heart of the village at Abingworth fields, alongside the new Village Hall and other community buildings.  While keeping our strong links with local schools and remaining kid-friendly, it was a more ambitious event that catered for all ages, with a good mix of stalls and catering, and the whole event had a fun mushroom theme.

The evening Fun Guy Fest for grownups showcased some great local bands, with professional stage, sound and lighting support.  We are building on this to plan next year’s event, which will be on Saturday 6 July 2019.

Quality craft stalls and similar are welcome.  You can download a booking form from this linkVillage Day stall booking form 2019.

Balancing the many positives, it also has to be said that this event is a big challenge to produce, and to balance the books.  The small organising group is under great strain, so to ensure that Thakeham can continue to enjoy an annual Village Day we urgently need more volunteers to get involved to spread the load, in advance of the event and on the day. To get involved, please contact me.
