VICTORY IN EUROPE - Street Party 9th May

Bagshot Village Day Sunday 21st June 2015

The Bagshot Summer Village Day alternates between the High Street and other locations in the village – this year we have been invited to arrange the day at the Bagshot Playing Fields Association on College Ride. Those with long memories will remember we held the Millennium Fayre there in 2000, so we are due a return visit!

As you can see the date is Sunday 21st June – the longest day, so we are hoping for lots of sunshine to help the day go well. It will run from 1pm to  5pm, which allows time for families to get chores completed in the morning. As we also have several Church groups hoping to attend, this allows for Sunday Services to be completed and time for volunteers to set up the stalls.

As it is on a Sunday, we are hoping that many of the businesses from the village, can transfer their wares up to the pavilion and have a ‘pitch’. We are also asking for other interested groups around the village to run a stall or organise an activity – once you have paid for your pitch, all taking are yours to keep or pass on to your charity. We have some stalls you can hire – £40 for the day, or for £20 a pitch, you can bring your own tables and gazebo. Bagshot Events still need to raise money to cover costs and this is where we raise our funds.  There is plenty of space to spread out on the field, although there is limited room in the pavilion itself, so we are looking for outdoor stalls and activities only. The pavilion itself will be used as a First Aid post, lost children, mission control ……. with kettle boiling facilities!

So, put the date in your diaries, and contact me if you wish to run a stall or organise an activity. Please send an email to events@bagshotvillage.com and I will send an application form and more details. If you wish to help on the day with setting up and/or tidying up afterwards, general marshaling, you would also be very welcome. Please send me an email with your name and contact number.

If you know any group, charity or business in Bagshot or the surrounding area, who would be interested, make sure you send them this message.

Thank you

An important message from the Bagshot Fairy … Fairy Nuff!

An Early Christmas Message from Fairy Nuff!

Another year has flown by and we are already starting to think about the Christmas celebrations in Bagshot.

My task every year is to decorate the fence around the big Christmas tree in Bagshot Square. I ask everyone to help me by writing Christmas messages on a special piece of card, which I then laminate carefully, so that your message will not get wet and soggy! This takes a little bit of time and so I have to get started early! Please can I have your cards ready by Friday 21st November, so that all your messages will be hanging on the fence ready for everyone to read on

Bagshot Christmas Light Up on Saturday 6th December.

On your card, you may want to ask for a special wish for yourself or other people or a special pressie from Father Christmas himself, maybe write down a special Christmas memory or even draw a Christmas picture. These cards are looked at by lots of people in the village and hopefully Father Christmas takes a peek as well, when no one is looking!

Extra cards are available from ALBOE which is open every day except Sundays and Mondays and Bagshot Village Community Library. I will be getting my friend Tina Carney, to take the cards to all the local schools, pre-schools, nurseries and senior citizen centres in the village, so hopefully no one is left out! She will also have some in her pocket!!

I do not have a mobile phone myself, but Tina says you can phone her if you have a question. Her number is 07890 864 074 or you can send her a whizzy email to events@bagshotvillage.com

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and a peaceful New Year
