Bagshot Village Day Sunday 21st June 2015

Village Day 2015Sunday 21st June 2015 1pm – 5pm The BPFA Pavilion on College Ride GU19 5ET, will be the location for this year’s ‘Bagshot Village Day’, where the whole community comes together to enjoy a day of lovely activities for all the family….. and maybe treat Dad as it is also Father’s Day.

Bagshot Concert Band will be performing between 2pm and 4pm with an interval in the middle. Bagshot Ballet will be performing a special routine and we are hoping the weather will be good enough for our Belly Dancers to make an appearance.

There will be stalls from many local charities who would love to see your support. There are also some local businesses from the village moving up for the day to display their wares and services. We have also booked in rides for the children including bungee trampolines and small rides. There will be lots of stalls selling goodies and refreshments to enjoy. We will also be welcoming an ice cream cart courtesy of Frenchies in Camberley, and also a smoothy bar.

There is still space for more stalls and activities – so if you are interested send an email to and details will be sent.  Charities, schools and churches are all able to have a free pitch and there are market stalls to hire as well. Keep an eye open for other things happening on the day. A warm welcome will be given to you from the BPFA, which has Bagshot Tennis Club and Bagshot Football Club as affiliated members as well as being the venue for many local groups.

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 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

Tina Carney, Valerie White, Geoff Marston Nick Dorrington and The BPFA Committee
