Location: Henwick Worthy Sports Ground
The Thatcham Family Fun Day will take place on Sunday 24th June at Henwick Worthy Sports Field on the A4, off Henwick Lane in west Thatcham. The Family Fun Day will be open to the general public from 11am until 4pm.
The first Family Fun Day was in 2009 and in recent years it attracts in excess of 4,000 visitors over the day. The highlights of the event will include the Hi-5 Runners Fun Run; the Thatcham Rotary Club car show; Pelham’s Fun Fair; a dog show; local charity and commercial stalls; and various local sport groups offering demonstrations and free taster sessions.
For 2018 the Thatcham Family Fun Day will incorporate The Great Get Together. The Great Get Together is inspired by Jo Cox, who was killed on 16th June 2016. More can be read about this project at www.greatgettogether.org, the following extract was taken from the website:
We believe there is a groundswell of people who reject divisive politics and simply want to bring our communities together and celebrate all that unites us. This is our chance.
As the prime minister said, when she remarked on Jo’s death in her New Year’s message 2017, we have an opportunity to move forward and “bring this country together, as never before”.
Jo’s family and friends came up with the initiative and more than one hundred organisations are now supporting us, see our partners page for the full list!
This weekend is inspired by Jo Cox, but we expect people to take part for many different reasons.
There will be activities celebrating the idea at the Town Council stand and we are intending to embrace the red and white gingham theme. It would be brilliant if your organisation would also take on board this idea.
We are looking for stallholders for the event. Each standard pitch is 4m in width to accommodate a 3m gazebo plus space for guy ropes. Double and triple pitches can also be booked. If you need an even bigger area then we can accommodate you. If you would like to take part in this important community event, please complete and return the appropriate application form by Monday 14th May.
If you would like to discuss any aspect of the event please contact the Community & Civic Manager, Jennie Currie, on 01635 863 592 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
