In September 2014, Whitchurch Parish Council held the first ‘Have a Field Day’ at the play–park. This was set up through the Fields in Trust organisation. – www.fieldsintrust.org and celebrates the commemoration of the Field & Play Park as a permanent & protected green space for the Community , under the Fields in Trust banner as part of the 2012 Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee.
A great time was had by all at the third ‘Have a Field’ day held at Whitchurch Village Play Park on Saturday 9th July. It turned out to be a beautiful sunny afternoon in the end and it was fantastic to see so many people enjoying themselves. The races, organised by Matt, from Whitchurch Village Council, were a real favourite and lots of
fun was had by the participant’s, young and old. It was agreed that this will be an annual event, so look out for details on the website early in 2017.
Whitchurch Village again played its part by participating in this extraordinary event. Our beacon was one of about a
thousand up and down the country which was lit to celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday.
A big thankyou to all the volunteers who made this possible, especially the children from Whitchurch Village Primary School,
who came along to sing some appropriate songs for the occasion, together with their teachers, parents and helpers.
The beacon was lit, to the singing of ‘Happy Birthday’ and a celebratory drink enjoyed by around 70 people in attendance.
Thirteen Volunteers turned out on Saturday 2nd April, to take part in the annual village ‘Community Clear Up’, which also coincided with the national campaign ahead of the Queen’s 90th Birthday to ‘Clean for the Queen’
Around 20 bags of rubbish were collected from pavements, footpaths and open spaces around Whitchurch Village to make the area look clean and tidy.
Refreshments were then provided in Whitchurch Community Centre, with homemade cakes donated by a local resident
and much appreciated by the volunteers after all their hard work.
The Neighbourhood Plan will play a very important part in the way
Whitchurch Village will be shaped over the next few years.
The last open evening was a great success, and provided a good
platform to start off the process. We aim to have a further meeting in
April, currently scheduled for 21st April.
We really do need YOUR help to progress the Plan, and are seeking
volunteers urgently. We are looking for anyone who would be able to
contribute a little bit of time & enthusiasm to help a small team of
local people who are looking to bring the Plan together.
