Broadwindsor Fun Group’s Jubilee celebrations draw nearer and excitement is building.
Village drums speak of many scarecrows being constructed and decorated, with some considerable thought involved… however, the number of forms submitted so far does not equate.
Please make sure your royal themed scarecrow is included by completing an entry form:
Forms can be picked up from our Broadwindsor Community Stores or from the White Lion table by the entrance, on the left.
Complete your details and don’t forget to mark on the map where your scarecrow can be found!
Please then return them with your £2 entry fee… NO LATER THAN WED. 25TH MAY.
Put your scarecrow out for display (and judging) on Friday, 3rd June. The Cup for Best Scarecrow will be presented & announced at Sunday’s Great Jubilee Picnic 🙂
You are invited to take part in this year’s Jubilee Scarecrow competition as part of Broadwindsor Fun Group’s Jubilee celebrations.
As you would expect, the theme this year is Royalty, preferably with no reference to Prince Andrew! You can download an entry form HERE. Entry forms can also be collected from Broadwindsor Community Stores or The White Lion Pub.
Completed forms are to be returned to either place, together with your £2 entrance fee.
A map will be created showing where all the scarecrows are so have your completed entry form in no later than Wednesday, May 25th to be included.
Please put your scarecrow out on Friday, 3rd June 2022 for judging over the Friday and Saturday. The winners will be announced and the Cup awarded at the Great Jubilee Picnic Lunch on Sunday, 5th June.
If you browse back through the photographs on Broadwindsor’s Facebook page HERE, you can view previous entries from earlier scarecrow competitions 🙂
Good luck everyone!
Broadwindsor Fun Group are holding an Extraordinary General Meeting on Thursday, October 1st 2020 at 7pm in the Comrades Hall. This is an Open meeting and interested parties from Broadwindsor and Hursey are invited to attend.
However, due to Government Covid-19 restrictions and social distancing, there will be a limit of 30 attendees.
Current members who are couples have been respectfully requested to send only one to represent them allowing space for others to attend. On this occasion, anyone wishing to go along MUST register their interest to firstname.lastname@example.org so that numbers can be monitored.
For those unable to, who have constructive comments and/or ideas are asked to please submit them to the Fun Group email so they can be addressed at the meeting.
The Broadwindsor Fun Group formed last year following the dissolution of what was known in the village as the Jubilee Group, to continue the annual Fun Day with its Scarecrow competition in June each year and hold fun, fundraising events throughout the year to make it all happen. Although the entertainment and events for 2020 were all in place – everything had to be cancelled.
Saturday, June 12th 2021 is the date planned for Broadwindsor Fun Day next year.
At the meeting on October 1st, the positions of Chairman and Vice-chairman are to be elected, who’s first duties will involve discussion and agreement to form a Constitution describing the Group’s purpose and to define the duties and responsibilities of the elected officers and members in a clear and concise manner. The template for next year’s events are in place and the accounts have been audited.
All annual events require planning, active support and participation to make it a success – Broadwindsor Fun Group is counting on you! Please contact: email@example.com.
