Feast Day – Saturday 27th June 2015
Feast Day set to be best ever!
The annual Chalfont St Peter Feast day event will take place on Gold Hill Common on Saturday 27th June and organisers say it is set to be the best ever.
A full day and evening of family entertainment has been arranged including a free concert in the evening featuring local singer songwriter Ben McKelvey and leading UK Bee Gees tribute band Stayin’ Alive.
The day will officially start at 10am with a range of activities in the Fairweather Insurance arena and the Parish Council stage running until 5pm. The evening concert starts at around 7pm.
Over 100 stalls will be providing a huge variety of goods and services and a funfair will be in operation all day and evening.
A dog show and tug of war competition will provide some competitive action and the event will also feature a dog and duck show (you’ll have to attend to find out more!)
A classic car display and parade featuring vehicles from the Chiltern Hill hill climb will be present along with traditional favourites such as Punch and Judy.
There will be lots of refreshment facilities including a bar b q, beer and tea tents.
The event is free to attend although donations will be sought with all profits from the event going to local good causes.
A 40 page programme has been porduced and will be being distributed in the village centre on the mornings of 13th and 20th June.
The 2015 sponsors are: Chalfont St Peter Parish Council, Fairweather Insurance; Chalfont St Peter Parish Church; Gold Hill Baptist Church; Roberts Newby; Tim’s Dairy; Goddard Veterinary Group; Wheelhouse Veterinary Centre; Thorpe House School and Bucks County Council Community Fund.
Organising committee member Michael Day said: “This year’s event looks set to be another fabulous day out for all the family and we expect a large crowd.
We would ask that people do not drive to the event as there is no car parking on site. Car parking is free in the Church lane car park in the village and a free shuttle bus will run back and forth from there to the site throughout the day.
I’d also very much like to thank our stallholders, advertisers and sponsors for their support.”
