The Broadwindsor Fun Group took over from what was known as the Jubilee Group, which formed in 2002 to celebrate the Queen’s GoldenJubilee with a street party. Since then, there had been annual Fun Day celebrations in the village square and in Bernards’ Place until the Covid-19 pandemic.
The current Core Committee of the Broadwindsor Fun Group consist of:
- Adrian Gray– Chairman.
- Martin Burt – Vice Chairman.
- Wendy Shields – Secretary, Admin & IT.
- Michele Williams – Treasurer.
- Lynne Staff – Catering.
Broadwindsor Fun Group take photos & videos at most of their events, including the annual Fun Day. These images will be used by the Broadwindsor Fun Group to share news about the Fun Day and to publicise our next Fun Day. Images may be used in press releases, printed publicity and published on Broadwindsor.org’s website, Facebook Page and other social media. If you would prefer for you or your child not to be photographed, please speak to Wendy (01308 868776). If you would like to see your images, or would like us to delete them, please email the group on email@example.com at any time.
Pre the Covid-19 pandemic, throughout the year, there are also other fundraising events which will be restarting, such as coffee mornings and quizzes, to help pay for the big day in the summer. Any money left over is distributed to local groups.
We look forward to 2022 when we will then, all being well, celebrate our Queen’s Platinum Jubilee!
