Well-at­tended com­mu­nity event a great suc­cess in the sun­shine

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

Bea­cons­field Now! saw com­mu­nity groups, so­ci­eties and or­gan­i­sa­tions set up stall on the town coun­cil green from 11am un­til 2pm on Satur­day.

Dig­ni­taries were also at the well-at­tended event, in­clud­ing Bea­cons­field MP Do­minic Grieve, mayor Pa­trick Ho­gan, town crier Dick Smith and Sylvia Jane.

Deb­bie Mars­den, one of the or­gan­is­ers and mem­bers of the Bea­cons­field So­ci­ety, said: “It was re­ally good, we were re­ally pleased. We had very good, pos­i­tive feed­back from all of the stands and stall hold­ers.”

Mrs Mars­den said the choirs were ‘fan­tas­tic’ and added that Brain Tu­mour Re­search sold a lot of woollen an­i­mals and the scouts sold out of their good­ies.

She was also glad the weather held out for the day and or­gan­is­ers were ‘lucky it didn’t rain’.

She added: “I would like to say a big thank you to all of the stall hold­ers this year. We were grate­ful for all their sup­port.”
