This free, fun family event, undercover in marquees, has much to offer all ages. Dave the Donkey will be attending with his farmyard friends for a cuddle. A sit-on railway will run 35m down the touchline, available for children and adults to have a ride and discuss the finer mechanics of steam locomotion. Obviously, the Beaconsfield and District Model Railway Club and Bekonscot Model Village also have railway expertise albeit on a smaller scale.
Look out for information on the Mayor’s appeal and celebrations occurring at Bekonscot on 12th May.
As well as a real fire engine (emergencies permitting), John will be there with his amazing scale model and he will be delighted to share with you his fascination and knowledge of fire engines through the ages.
Do you have elderly relatives needing care? Then come and talk to the Abbeyfields Bradbury House team or investigate MyLife, a new group to Beaconsfield.
Local news and plans can be discussed with Margaret at the Beaconsfield town Council stall and St John’s ambulance will bring Resus Annie along to show you some emergency first aid.
There is so much to find out about at our many stalls on wildlife, sports, history, local charities and activities with lots of learning opportunities as well as a chance to really get involved in your local community
Entertainment is varied and exciting. Waiting for visitors in the grounds of Beaconsfield Rugby Club will be vintage cars, a bouncy castle, ride-on railway, arts and crafts and drama demonstrations. Butler’s Court School have been brushing up on their Maypole Dancing skills while the High March choir will be singing a selection of songs from popular shows. Over thirty students from Beaconsfield High School will be performing and the Chiltern Shakespeare Company will let you know about their summer production of Much Ado About Nothing. Look out for some exciting play-fighting sequences during the afternoon.
Refreshments will be available throughout with the Guides providing delicious tea and cakes and a mouthwatering barbecue lunch cooked expertly by the 4th Beaconsfield Scout Group.
Grateful thanks go to the generous sponsorship provided by The Shanly Foundation and Beaconsfield Old Church School Charity as well as Winkworth’s advertising boards and lamp post banners kindly put up by Aquapura.
We look forward to welcoming you to an informative and fun afternoon.
