Leave No One At Home For Jubilee Picnic – Sunday, 5th June

As part of Broadwindsor Fun Group’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, they have launched a campaign ‘Leave No One At Home’ for their Great Jubilee Picnic on Sunday, 5th June, starting at 1pm.

Weather permitting and inside the Comrades Hall if wet, there will be tables and chairs outside and live entertainment will be provided by The Silver Lining band, playing your favourites from the 1950s and 60s. 

Prizes for the Best Scarecrows and best in the Children’s Royal parade will be awarded.

You are invited to take your own food along or take advantage of the Stableyard’s Jubilee picnic boxes which contain enough to share and can be pre-ordered now.

More importantly, Broadwindsor Fun Group are about inclusion and are asking you to consider your neighbour or someone you know who may be unable to get to Bernards’ Place or who may not be able to prepare a picnic for themselves –

  • Would you be able to help them get there?
  • Do you have enough food to share to prepare a picnic for them or share a picnic box with?
  • Could they join your table for conversation and company?

If there is anyone who needs assistance in attending or would require an easily accessible table for the afternoon – please contact BFG’s Chairman, Adrian Gray on 07917 660650.

Update From Broadwindsor Fun Group

A letter from Adrian Gray, Chair of Broadwindsor Fun Group:

 Dear All,

The sun is shining and this has led me to reflect on how our plans for the event planned for Broadwindsor’s Fun Day on Saturday, 14th August are progressing.

I am very pleased to announce great progress and even more importantly that we now have a new treasurer appointed after David Taylor decided, after years of service, to stand down. I am grateful for his guidance and work to keep the finances healthy.  Similarly I am very pleased to welcome Michele Williams aboard. Michele’s association with the village dates back to 1968 when her family purchased the Old Schoolhouse. She will be moving into the village as soon as maintenance work is complete but Michele is already working hard to make sure a transfer of funds and authorisations with the bank are sorted.

As for the day itself,

  • Strawberry Jam the Children’s entertainer has confirmed that she will be there.
  • We can also confirm that Nina Garcia (originally booked for last year’s cancelled Fun Day) will be performing.
  • Sadly Shelby’s Elbows were unable to reconfirm their booking so after a lot of research and negotiation, we have booked Bill & Ben from the Leggomen to perform to close the day.
    Both performers have YouTube videos should you wish to listen to them before the day.
  • We are pleased to announce that not only will the local Girl Guides will be leading a Trail event open to all but also
  • That the Broadwindsor W.I. have agreed to do the refreshments on the day.
  • There will be some Classic Cars in attendance.
    Interested parties should address their enquiries to: bwfundaycars@gmail.com.
  • Molly reports that bookings for stalls are selling well so if you should want a stall, which is not restricted to art & craft, please do not delay in contacting her at: handcraftedbymolls@gmail.com.
  • We have arranged for those running the BBQ this year to undergo a Food Safety course, particularly important given the current environment, so we can be confident that everyone is safe.
  • Our pub, The White Lion too has confirmed their support. We sincerely hope that Vikki & Spike are still here with us to share the day.
  • There will be a small raffle on the day with Hampers as prizes.
    This has been intentionally kept small to not take too much time and more importantly, it was felt the one of the aims of the event was to support local businesses and thus they should not be asked for prize donations. They have all had a hard time lately and we wanted to show support and provide a platform for them to display their wares.

Whilst there is still much work to be done to ensure that the day runs as well as possible, it is good to have a day to look forward to so please ensure that it is firmly in your diary. Saturday, 14th August 2021.

Adrian Gray,
Chair, Broadwindsor Fun Group
