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!
We’ve had some very peculiar games over the years at the annual Kilpeck BBQ, but the smelly sock sniffing game surely has to be one of the strangest yet!
This was one of the many activities on offer at this year’s event, and thanks to the hard efforts of the Kilpeck Village Hall Committee, over £700 was raised. This money will help to support the ongoing maintenance of the hall and to fund future events in Kilpeck.
The Hall Committee are always delighted to welcome new members, so if you would like to support your local community, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details of how to get involved.
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.
Make a date in your diary for Saturday 24th August 2013 as Kilpeck is going to have its first combined Community Games and BBQ!
Following the enormous success of last years Community Games, it was decided to make this a regular event and the silliness starts at 2.00pm. It doesn’t matter if you are as fit as Jessica Ennis or find putting on your shoes a marathon – there is something for everyone!
Once the games have finished, the fun continues with this year’s Kilpeck BBQ – postponed from July, all the usual fun and games will be there, including the Greasy Pole, Skittles, The Golf Game (which always gets very competitive) and the Kilpeck Challenge – a family activity sheet featuring a quiz and puzzles for all ages.
This year also features the first ever Bear Race with 6 eager contenders waiting for your support. Which one do you think will win?
Alternatively, if all of this sounds like a lot of effort for a bank holiday weekend just sit down under the giant Oak Tree on the green with a tasty burger or sausage and enjoy watching the activities.
So come and join us – it doesn’t matter if you’re a local or just visiting the area – everybody is welcome!
All funds raised on the day go to Kilpeck Village Hall. These funds are used for ongoing maintenance of refurbishment of the hall, and to cover the cost of future events. For further details contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
