The Storrington Village Day organising committee has started planning for this grand summer community event and promises a fun day of singing and dancing by local school children, a funfair and games, dog show, Morris Dancing, bar and bbq, Lions giant book fair, grand raffle, a display of classic cars from SADCASE enthusiasts, a scarecrow building competition, teas and cakes, as well as lots of charity, craft and trade stalls.
This free annual event was revived last year and is led by The Rotary Club of Storrington & Pulborough District with strong support from Storrington & Sullington Parish Council and local community clubs and groups.
The new Committee Chairman, Rotary President Mark Foss, is keen to have a big village input and is encouraging as many groups as possible to join in and contribute to a fun day for the whole community. All proceeds from the event will be used to support many village activities for young people.
Local young people benefit from 2019 Storrington Village Day
Following a successful Storrington Village Day event in June, last year, cheque donations totalling £4,250 have been awarded to a number of local organisations in the community.
Last year’s Village Day Committee Chairman, Tony Vaughan, took the opportunity to say thank you to the recipient organisations and their leaders, many of whom are volunteers, for the work they do with young people in the community: “We were delighted to see the successful revival of Storrington Village Day and it is great to see money raised at this very popular
community event going straight back into supporting our young people in Storrington.”
Tony also wishes to thank the event organisers and sponsors whose help in various ways enables the committee to invest in the event’s attractions.
