Village Day

Village Day 2018

This years village Day was on Saturday 23rd. The Theme was Super Heroes

We hope you all had a fantastic day.

A few Pictures will be coming soon…..

 

Village Day 2019 – Celebrating 50 years of Village Day which was resurrected in 1969.

In 1969 the ancient custom of “The Wakes” was reborn as Village Day.  Next year will be a special day as it is celebrating 50 years – a time when the village can come together and enjoy the simple pleasures of a village community.

As always we are looking for volunteers and ideas:

  • Would you like to help out – organising the festivities or on the day?
  • Do you have any ideas of how we can make village day 2019 a very special celebration?

If so please contact us at: contact@bunburyvillage.info
