Welcome to the Tockenham Village Fair for 2018
Tockenham Summer Fair
Saturday, 14th July 2018
from 2:00 pm
Many, Many Thanks Tockenham!
Our 80th Tockenham Village Fair was another wonderful day with great weather, great attendance, fabulous stalls, activities and entertainment and we raised an impressive £7,500 for the Village Hall, St Giles Church and our local charities SMASH Youth Project and The Link 6 Scheme.
Many thanks for joining us and supporting our event for another great year. The fair was full of traditional stalls and games, homemade refreshments, our dog show, best-dressed bicycle competition and a new area showcasing Tockenham Arts and Crafts corner.
Malcolm Holland of the Royal Wootton Bassett Museum presented the village with the original “Duke of Beaufort” sign that hung outside our village pub for many years. We plan to hang this in the village hall as a nod to our pub heritage.
The committee would like to give their heartfelt thanks to all those involved in making our 80th year another great success. Many thanks to the local businesses that support us through their advertising and sponsorship. A big thumbs up to the design and printing guys, the set-up and tear-down teams, the stall manners, the cake makers, the judges, the Chippenham Brass Band, Clare’s’ Circus, the dog show team and everyone else who selflessly gave their time and expertise to make our biggest community event of the year another stonking success. All your efforts are so important to the success and prosperity of our village and your energy and enthusiasm is the fuel that drives us forward.
A special shout-out to Lynne Horwitz who took many wonderful photos to mark the day and please visit 2018 Summer Fair Photos to relive the fair in pictures.
Planning for the 2019 event will now begin so please look out for details of our first Committee meeting towards the end of the year. We are always keen to welcome new members and we would be delighted if you can join us.
