VIL­LAGERS can get ready to party af­ter it was con­firmed that a pop­u­lar an­nual event will go ahead af­ter months of un­cer­tainty.

Iver’s Party in the Park will take place on July 4 at Iver Recre­ation Ground af­ter the parish coun­cil stepped in to help out a group of vol­un­teers who have been work­ing to or­gan­ise the fes­ti­val.

It was un­cer­tain whether the event would go ahead this year due to the Gen­eral Elec­tion tak­ing place, which meant parish coun­cil­lors were un­able to get in­volved with or­gan­is­ing the party in the build-up to the elec­tion. How­ever, now that has past, the parish coun­cil has come on board to help out, mean­ing the day has been given the green light.

Among the con­firmed at­trac­tions so far are a fam­ily fun­fair, stalls, games and a wide va­ri­ety of re­fresh­ments for sale.

The evening will close with a per­for­mance from a Rob­bie Wil­liams trib­ute act fol­lowed by a fire­works dis­play.

Parish coun­cil chair­man Wendy Matthews, said: “We’re re­ally pleased that it’s go­ing ahead.

“It has been un­cer­tain this year, but it’s great that it’s go­ing ahead.

“It’s been a re­ally pop­u­lar event in pre­vi­ous years and we are hop­ing that this year will be the same.

“It’s a real com­mu­nity event and a great way of bring­ing the vil­lage to­gether. There will be loads to en­joy for adults and kids.”

The Party in the Park was orig­i­nally in­tended as a one-off spe­cial event in 2012 to co­in­cide with the Queen’s ju­bilee cel­e­bra­tions that year.

How­ever, this proved such a suc­cess it was de­cided to hold the cel­e­bra­tion ev­ery year, and 2015 marks its fourth con­sec­u­tive stag­ing.

Party in the Park will also in­clude an Iver’s Got Tal­ent con­test, with peo­ple en­cour­aged to sign up to show off their skills.

The day starts at noon and will fin­ish at 11pm. To find out more, or to register for Iver’s Got Tal­ent, go to www. par­tyinthep­arkiver.co.uk. A DAY FOR VIL­LAGERS TO CHIP IN: Robin Hood – aka Lee Hall of the Iver Heath Drama Club – helped to man the archery stall at last year’s Party in the Park.
