Village Day

2019 Village Day

The sun shone for Thakeham Village Day and Fun Guy Fest. There was a range of stalls and activities including bouncy castles, Fire truck, face paints, coconut shy, child talent (and dog) shows, lots of cake and our very own Parish Rector in the stocks! It was great to see the community (young, old and furry!) come out to support Thakeham Preschool and Thakeham Primary School. Local bands played into the evening. Parish Councillor Fiona McConnachie ensured we made the event as environmentally friendly as practicable. Bar “glasses” were reusable and recyclable waste was managed separately. Thank you to everyone who played a part in organising or attending this year’s event. It really couldn’t happen without you. Anyone wanting to help with next year should contact thakehamcommunityevents@gmail.com .
Please send any photos that you’d be happy to share on our website to assistant-clerk@thakehamparish.co.uk

 

 

2018 Village Day

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.
