Village Day 2021

Update: March 23 – 2021

Saturday 26 June is after the end of lockdown which the Government is planning on 21 June, we have therefore provisionally planned for Village Day to go ahead! Obviously we will modify the plans with any change in Government guidance.

The event will largely be as normal – watch out for more details but put it in your diaries.

So, with Village Day fast approaching the search has begun for this year’s Rose King and Queen and the six attendants. The age groups are as follows:

  • Rose King and Queen: Years 5 and 6 on date of application.
  • Attendants (boys and girls):   Reception to Year 4 on date of application.

If you would like your son or daughter to be entered into the draw, please download the form, complete the slip and return to Bunbury School by Wednesday 21st April (by 3.10pm). You will find more details on the form too.

Thank you – BVD Committee.


BVD 2020Following our highly successful 50th anniversary event last year, the team are excited to share the news that our theme this year will be The Olympics, to coincide with the slightly larger event taking place in Tokyo later in the summer!

The event will feature all the much-anticipated elements including a parade, fairground, BBQ, stalls, arena entertainment and much much more.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter or drop us a line at: contact@bunburyvillage.info

Unfortunately no dogs are allowed on the playing field.

Could your child be the Rose Queen or King?

How do I get there?

Village Day is held on the Jubilee playing field. See map above for directions and the parade route.

What time does it start?

The Parade starts at 12.30 and the opening ceremony starts soon after 13.00.

Where does the procession go?

The Procession starts at ST. Boniface Church at 12.30 and passes through the Village. The judges will sit outside the Nags Head pub to observe the procession.

The road will be temporarily blocked while the procession is in progress.

Safety

As always, parents and carers are responsible for their children at all times.

There will be first aid onsite.

How are the proceeds from Village Day Spent?

Although the main focus of Village Day is to provide a great day for everyone, sometimes there is a small profit which is spent on good causes in the Village. Below are a few examples of how the proceeds have been spent

  • Maintaining the Village website
  • Procuring a new bench for the triangle in front of the co-op
  • Helping to fund the public access defibrillator in the Nags Head and funding replacement pads and batteries
  • Paying for a coach trip for the Friday at Tillys club
