The annual Kilpeck Village BBQ went ahead last night and was another great success. A fun evening out for all of the family with the usual mix of food, games, raffle prizes and most importantly, a chance to catch up with friends and neighbours.
So on behalf of everybody who attended, Kilpeck Village News would like to say a big thank you to everybody on the Kilpeck Village Hall committee (and their band of volunteers), who have given their valuable time to put together this popular event – not just on the day itself, but in the weeks and months leading up to the day.
Just a reminder about this Saturday’s Kilpeck BBQ (22nd July) from 6.00pm onwards.
As well as the usual family friendly fun and games, the Kilpeck Inn have kindly arranged for a live band to accompany the proceedings.
So come and join the fun on the green at this popular annual event. Hope to see you there!
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 email@example.com 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 7.30pm.
This year’s kilpeck BBQ will now take place on the village green Saturday 6th September from 5.30pm until dark.
Traditionally the BBQ takes place in July, but regrettably due to a dwindling committee and subsequent shortage of volunteers, the event has had to be moved to a later date. This event is always well attended and so many hands are always needed to help it to run smoothly.
If you live locally and would like the event to continue on an annual basis, please come along to the Kilpeck Village Hall AGM in October and pledge your support.
