Haydon Wick Parish Council was delighted with the turn out for the event at King George V Field last Thursday as over 1,000 people attended throughout the day.
Councillor Rebecca Ross, Chair of the Community Development Committee had this to say about the event:
“It was wonderful to see so many of the community come together and enjoy the day, and just goes to show the fantastic community spirit we have here in Haydon Wick.
A special thanks to all of those who contributed to making the day a success, without them we couldn’t have made the day happen.”
Entertainment was provided by the Britannia Majorettes, live music from Jol Rose, and Singing for the Brain, all of which had lots of people singing along and enjoying the show.
A selection of jubilee craft pursuits for young people were a real success. There were hand-decorated crowns being worn around the event all day. Allstarz coaching also helped keep the young people entertained by providing various workshops throughout the day.
The Parish Council’s Memory Café put on an array of stimulating activities, such as making recycled bird feeders and planting sunflowers. These activities attracted a lot of interest and even saw some young people joining in with the memory café residents.
The biggest highlight of the event was the fly past by the Lancaster bomber. All eyes to the sky to see such an incredible aircraft grace our skies. A range of craft stalls and street food was also available which kept everybody refreshed throughout the day.
