Over £35m raised for good causes through easyfundraising
The 2007 Town Festival will take place in the first FULL week of July 2007, which means that the starting date will be Saturday 7th July and it will run until Sunday 15th July, with â€˜SAFARIâ€™ as its theme, to coincide with the â€˜100 years of scoutingâ€™ celebrations.
The Committee hopes to run a full season of events, as usual, provided that the requisite amount of funding can be raised. These events will include a Street Parade in Fancy Dress on Saturday 7th, followed by the Annual Fun on the Field at King George V Recreation Ground. In the evening it is likely that there will be a Barn Dance at the same location. Sunday will bring along the 10km Run in the morning, followed by a Car Rally in the afternoon.
During the week the Committee hopes that local clubs and organisations will open their doors to prospective new members and that there will be further entertainment for people to attend. Last year we were pleased to note that a number of local clubs gave indications that they had experienced an upsurge in membership due to their Festival involvement, which is very gratifying, as this is what Festival was set up for.
The Annual Street Fayre will go ahead on Saturday 14th July in the High Street, Market Square and Duke Street and the Committee are on the lookout for entertainers for this event. The Town Council, the principle sponsors of Festival, will, hopefully, be holding their Open Air event that evening.
New this year:
The committee will be organising some Fund Raising Events and a Grand Raffle and your support is essential to the continued running of Festival as supporter finances are becoming somewhat limited.
So it is all beginning to happen for Festival 2007 and we now hope for good weather for the week and hope that our Sponsors will continue to support us financially.
