Date is set for village’s pop­u­lar feast

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

The mas­sive village event is set to take place on Satur­day June 25 on Gold Hill Com­mon and committee mem­bers say it will be an­other fab­u­lous event.

Or­gan­is­ing committee mem­ber Michael Day said: “This year’s event looks set to be an­other fab­u­lous day out for all the fam­ily and we ex­pect a large crowd.”

A full day of fam­ily en­ter­tain­ment is planned with com­bat dis­plays from Pal­adin Me­dieval Knights, a dog agility show from Four Paws Racing, dances, choirs, a clas­sic car dis­play and pa­rade, a tra­di­tional fun fair with a carousel as seen on hit tele­vi­sion show Down­ton Abbey.

It will start at 10am and runs un­til 5.30pm and there will be lots of re­fresh­ment fa­cil­i­ties and stalls pro­vid­ing a huge va­ri­ety of goods and ser­vices.

As the Ad­ver­tiser went to press nearly 80% of stall pitches have been sold so any­one think­ing of tak­ing a stall is en­cour­aged to down­load the form from the web­site to book.

The event is free to at­tend although do­na­tions will be sought with all prof­its go to lo­cal good causes. Feast of St Peter in­vite re­quests from lo­cal char­i­ties and good causes for any fund­ing re­quire­ments they may have. A full colour pro­gramme is be­ing pro­duced and will be avail­able in the village from June 13.

The list of spon­sors to date are Fair­weather In­sur­ance, Chal­font St Peter Par­ish Church, Gold Hill Baptist Church, Roberts Newby, Tim’s Dairy, God­dard Vet­eri­nary Group, Ni­cholas Moss es­tate agents and Thorpe House School.

Mr Day added: “We would ask that peo­ple do not drive to the event as there is no car park­ing on site. Car park­ing is free in the Church Lane car park in the village and a free shut­tle bus will run back and forth from there to the site through­out the day. I’d also very much like to thank our stall­hold­ers, ad­ver­tis­ers and spon­sors for their sup­port.”
