Well despite the dreadful forecast, the rain held off and the sun came out! Yes, this year’s Kilpeck BBQ was another great success with lots of fun for all.
A recent Big Lottery Awards for All grant enabled the purchase of two large ‘pop-up’ gazebos to provide shelter (from the sun, as well as rain), 2 Swingball sets, and a giant Connect4 and Jenga set. These were made available for families to use throughout the evening and proved very popular. All of these items are now available for hire to local groups in the area – please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
As well as these free activites, the usual pocket money games were on offer ranging from golf and skittles to the “Guess the object in a sock” challenge!
The annual Kilpeck BBQ is all about bringing together the local community at a fun and safe event, and it also presents an opportunity to raise some much needed funds towards the upkeep of the village hall. This year, funds were raised in excess of £500! The committee would like to thank everybody who helped on the day and made the event possible.
Events such as these really cannot happen without a reliable band of volunteers, so if you would like to get involved next year, please come to our AGM which takes place at Kilpeck Hall on Thursday 9th October at 8.00pm.
