Gloves off for Village Day 2000

They’ve protected the hands of England’s number one but now the gloves are off and up for grabs.

David Seaman’s goalkeeping gloves are just one of the prizes at Brookmans Park’s Village Day on June 17.

And in an action packed day, officially opened by BBC Newsreader Sian Williams, visitors are invited to sample cuisine from the four corners of the world washed down with Pimms or real ale.

The annual event has reverted to a ‘family fun’ theme this year based on ‘a day at the races’.

Inter-road tournaments, Brownie races and good old-fashioned tug-of-war competitions will be some of the central attractions in the main arena.

All around the show ground there will be stalls and sideshows including the tombola, rides and competitions for the children.

And this year special efforts have been made to ensure toddlers have a great day out. A special area has been set-aside with a children’s entertainer, bouncy castle and ball pool.

While this is all going on a jazz band will be providing the background music and a local dance troop and theatre group will be entertaining the crowds.

It all adds up to a great day out and all are welcome. Money raised will go towards the Brookmans Park PTA funds to support the local primary school.

Brookmans Park Village Day on June 17, begins with a procession from the village green at 12 noon and closes at 4.30 in the afternoon.
