Village Day 2003 programme
Visitors to Brookmans Park Village Day will have the change of driving away in a new car today.
A late addition to the programme includes a 'roll-a-dice' challenge. If you roll seven sixes in one go you are handed the keys.
There are also three copies of the latest Harry Potter books on offer as raffle prices at three of the side-shows.
Village Day 2003 gets underway at 12.30, when children from the area gather in animal costume fancy dress at the United Reformed Church, Bluebridge Road.
They then walk through the village to the gates of Brookmans Park Primary school, accompanied by their parents or guardians.
At 1pm the school gates will be open to the general public.
The official opening of the event and the judging of the best 'Animal Magic' costume will take place in the show arena shortly after.
Entertainment and talent shows will continue in the arena throughout the afternoon.
Among the attractions will be:
Weather forecasters predict a dry sunny day with temperatures reaching a high of 21°C (70°F). Brookmans Park Village Day 2003 is expected to draw to a close around 5pm.
A photogallery of about 30 images of Village Day 2003 will appear on this site while the event is taking place. People will be able to order full-size images from a selection of thumbnails, which will be e-mailed to them for free.
Note: No identifiable pictures of children will appear without the permission of a parent or guardian. Group shots of stallholders will only be taken with their permission. General shots showing people enjoying the event will be added to the gallery, but if anyone is unhappy the image will be removed immediately. In most cases, people will be asked if they are happy for a photograph to be taken or not.
