New look village day 2014 - hold the date!

This year Party in the Field (Village Day) and the go-kart rally are coming together for a fun-filled family day out on Saturday September 27th 2014. The event is being organised by 4 village charities and organisations: Beckington's Cricket Club, Pre-School, Tennis Association and Memorial Hall Committee, with all proceeds being shared equally.

Plans for the day include a return to more traditional village fete stalls and activities in the centre of the village, with the go-kart rally taking place along Warminster Road and Sandy Lane. There will also be a ticketed event in the evening to round off the day's activities.

A committee is being formed to organise the event, so if you would like to get involved either organising or helping out on the day please contact me on 0788 4398557. We particularly need help looking for sponsorship, organising the raffle and helping coordinate entertainment/field activities - all critical in ensuring we make as much money as possible for our 4 excellent causes. We look forward to seeing you there! Kathryn Bryant - Event Coordinator.

Connected with Beckington are the villages of Berkley, Rodden, Lullington and Orchardleigh (see map of the area with streetview pictures).
