Title: Brookmans Park Village Day SATURDAY 13th JUNE 2015
Post by: Helen on March 04, 2015, 10:44:19 am
We're delighted to announced that this year's Village Day will be on Saturday 13th June and the theme is 'Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside'!

As ever, we are looking for prizes for our auction or raffle (we will give your business lots of publicity in return) and we are also now taking stall bookings. Please find details attached.

We are once again putting together our Village Day Programme, which will be A5 in size and in full colour. We have a few spaces left for quarter or half page adverts at just 20 or 30 respectively. If you're interested in advertising your business please email us at villagedaycommittee [at] gmail [dot] com (changed because of spammers) and spaces will be allocated on a first come first served basis. If you would like to advertise but do not have an advert we can use, then for an additional 10 we can design one for you.

Thank you for your support.

Thanks David - you saved me a job with the calendar & as for embedding, I'm not sure how to do that!

Hi Helen, the pdfs need to be online to embed. I have access to a server, so it's easy for me. Once they are online you just use the pdf icon above the message panel. It looks like this.

We're putting together the final preparations for this year's seaside-themed Village Day and will soon be ready to announce the auction items that will be up for grabs.


As well as our fantastic raffle, we have two auctions again this year - an on-line auction which will go live within the next week or two and run up to the week before Village Day, plus our ever-popular live auction, which will take place next to the bar at 3pm on the day. Full details of both the auctions and the raffle will follow in due course, but in the meantime if you are able to provide a prize then we can provide the publicity! We've had some wonderful items already from both local businesses and private individuals and, as ever, we appreciate your generosity.


If you would like to donate, please either message me or contact us via the email in the poster below.


For more info please take a look at our website: http://www.brookmansparkpta.com/village-day (http://www.brookmansparkpta.com/village-day)


Thank you,


Helen

Hmm, I just tried to embed our poster using a link from google drive but it doesn't appear to have worked - do one of you lovely administrators mind sorting it out for me? Sorry & thanks!

The sign on the board on the way into the village is very nice too.

We're wondering if anyone can help us to source some deckchairs for our seaside themed Village Day. We only need half a dozen or so & second-hand is fine! If you think you can help please message me or email me at villagedaycommittee[at]gmail[dot]com.


Thanks!

Thanks to everyone who either donated towards or bid in our online auction - we raised 1,244.50.

Our Live Auction takes place during Village Day, at 3pm near the bar. There are some fabulous prizes up for grabs including a last-minute addition - a signed Spurs football shirt (thanks Gary!). The Brookmans (who are once again generously donating their time and expertise on our bar) are giving away the chance to be a chef for the day and there are many other sporting and recreational lots to be won. Please see our full list below.

We hope to see you there from 1pm on Saturday - come rain or shine!

A rather belated thank you to everyone who braved the drizzle to come to Village Day last month. The money has almost finished trickling in and we were delighted to raise over 12,500 in spite of the disappointing weather. Photos are available to view here https://flic.kr/s/aHskgzE9F8 (https://flic.kr/s/aHskgzE9F8) and in due course we'll get round to adding a page to the Gallery.


Thanks again for your support - all money raised will be used to enrich the school's educational environment.
