Local bands, school children, singers and dancers, magic and entertainment shows, Morris Dancers, a funfair and huge variety of interesting stalls and skills challenges entertained local folk and families as they enjoyed a special day in the sunshine at Storrington’s Village Day this month.
The hot weather regrettably meant the cancellation of the dog show on the advice of the RSPCA. But the Car Boot Sale, SADCASE Classic Car display, Lions Giant Book Sale and Funfair kept everyone entertained. The Storrington Football club manned the Beer & BBQ tent and Rotary Wives served tea and cakes all afternoon.
Arundel & South Downs MP Nick Herbert was on hand to draw the winning Grand Raffle tickets before the Chance Singers brought the day to a close.
Village Day Chairman Tony Vaughan was full of praise for everyone who made the day special. “I was delighted to see so many people enjoying the Village Day. Reviving this local community event has been a great success we are looking to continuing it next year. We rely on Rotary, our generous sponsors and all those who participated on the day and ensured its smooth running. Proceeds from the event will benefit local children and local young people causes.”
