Chorleywood Village Day 2019 proved again to be a great success with over 6,000 people visiting the event, supporting local businesses, charitable organisations and community groups.
The weather played its part making it a very pleasant afternoon, and visitors enjoyed the entertainment from dance groups, taekwondo, tug of war competition, the amazing birds of prey show, and reptile information from Jungle Juniors.
The ever-popular dog show brought to us by Chorleywood Dog Training was back, where the black lab Maple won the ‘Best in Show’.
The Chillout Zone was buzzing with the acoustic sets from local musicians and refreshment from Chorleywood Community Orchard and the cider club.
With over 100 stalls – the event not only is great for the visitor but is also a fantastic opportunity for local groups and organisations to raise much needed funds and awareness.
Organisers from Michael Sobel House commented: “The afternoon provided a very good opportunity to take to visitors who were enquiring about developments at the hospice.”
They raised over £600 from the sale of donated books for their charity.
Credit was given to a small team from Chorleywood Parish Council, the rangers who worked throughout the day, who made this event happen over the months of organisation, work and administration to make it run smoothly.
The rangers worked from 5.30am on the day and left around 6pm after clearing the rubbish.
Chorleywood Parish Council said: “We are proud to say that the event grows from strength to strength every year. Next year is the 20th anniversary for Village Day and preparations are already underway to make that very special – so watch this space.
