Details of the games and the running order will be displayed on a board on the day.


  • The road is closed to through traffic from mid-day. Please move vehicles to either end of the street to help make a safe play space.
  • Volunteers are still needed to help with face painting and running the games. Come forward on the day if you can help.
  • Please let us borrow your camping / garden chairs for the day – we’ll provide labels to help you keep track of them.
  • Bring out food / drink to share if you can.
  • Bring out your bake-off entry by 3pm. There’s no theme for the competition this year, just let your imagination run riot if you like.  The two categories are under 16s and 16s and overs. Entry is free as usual and open to anyone on Elmfield or guests.

 

If you have any music you’d like to add to the general background music during the afternoon please drop round a CD or MP3 to number 39 asap or bring to the next meeting.

We’re still having what you might loosely call “Planning meetings” every Thursday at 8PM outside the Coppermill – all are welcome.

 We’ve also decided to have an extra get together a week before the party:-

MEETING SUNDAY JULY 5TH 3PM ON THE GREEN AREA – WHEN WE’LL BE PROVIDING BLANK BUNTING FLAGS FOR YOU TO DECORATE AND BRING ON THE DAY (decorate with images of you, your family,your home, the street – anything connected with Elmfield Road. We hope to stick all the bunting together and use it every year).

PLUS WE’LL BE HAVING A FINAL COLLECTION FOR RAFFLE / TOMBOLA PRIZE DONATIONS (ALL DONATIONS WELCOME NO MATTER HOW BIG OR SMALL!)                            

Next planning meeting Thursday 18th June

NEWSLETTER JUNE 5th 2015

FUNDING: It looks like funding will be tight this year, so more than ever we’ll rely on the raffle (and possibly tombola) to help cover costs. If anyone can donate items we can use as prizes please drop them off  … (we’ll probably do a door-to-door collection in a couple of weeks).

MARQUEE DECORATIONS: If you are storing any stuff from last year’s party could you have a look to see if you’ve got any of the decorations last year (especially the large paper globes) and let us know. All decorations will need to be out by lunchtime so we can start decorating the Marquee in time.

COMPETITIONS: Kids and Adults ‘Bake Off (theme to be announced shortly). Also the ‘best kept front garden’ award is on again, with judging being carried out in advance on an unspecified day just to shake things up a bit!

GAMES: there’s be the usual games for all ages including tug of war, egg and spoon race, three legged race, space hopper races and possible new entries might include ‘beer goggles’ races …

ENTERTAINMENT: there’ll be face painting and other kids entertainment during the afternoon (more details to follow), background music all day and DJs later on to get us all up and dancing in the evening.

 

FOOD AND DRINK: Just bring out what you can to share on the day. Invite your friends and family and hope for great weather.

 

ROAD CLOSURE: the application is with the council and we’re hoping the road should be closed to through traffic to make it safe for everyone. As usual we’re asking people to move their vehicles to either end of the street by lunchtime to make space for the event.

 

MEETINGS: EVERY THURSDAY 8PM AT THE COPPERMILL (IN THE BEER GARDEN IF THE WEATHER PERMITS).
