Recipients and jubilee group members

Broadwindsor Jubilee Group has made a bumper £1,500 pay-out to village causes after a year of fun events.

Cheques were presented by group treasurer Heather Bunch at a thank you party at Comrades Hall for all those who helped over the Diamond Jubilee weekend earlier in the year.

Broadwindsor was one of the busiest places in the area, with a pram race, church service, scarecrow competition, street party and live bands in the village square, a display of flowers and memorabilia in the church where handmade quilts were also on display, cream teas in the churchyard, a village artwork, a community poem with residents contributing a line each, children’s games and a Jubilee party for older residents at Fullers.

A big money spinner was a raffle of hampers put together by village groups and run by Brenda Smith and Fran Waters

A planned rounders match on the cricket pitch did not go ahead because rain stopped play.

Jubilee Group chairman Andrew Hookings said: “It was a fantastic weekend, with organisations from the village putting on their own events as part of a busy timetable that everyone had a hand in and enjoyed.

“We raised the money from various events throughout the year to enable us to have a real weekend to remember. After paying expenses, we were left with £1,500 which the group decided to donate to eight worthy causes.”

The community enterprise that will be running the village shop received £500, the church £450, £100 each to Fullers, the over 60s club, the community sports field, the cricket club and Comrades Hall and £50 to the allotments group.
