Our Community partnership involvement includes us working with our local school; we sponsor their sports day each year with trophies as well as various academic events, such as the spelling-bee and times-tables award. We also had an Easter egg competition and presented Easters eggs to the best 3 Easter pictures.
We also sponsor the local towns bonfire night which is attended by most people in our area. We go along on the night, meeting everyone at the entrance and help on the stands. It is a really fun night with lots of activities to do for all the family then the big firework display at the end.
We like to support the local Scouts, we sponsor their annual Quiz night which is a great evening, teams come along and do the quiz then tuck into pie and peas before the prizes are presented. We have also sponsored their 65th Anniversary Quiz last year.
Last year we were kindly asked to take part in the Women's Institute 100 Centenary, we went along for the day with a 100 members of the WI for a Canada filled day. We did a presentation on Canada where the WI was started and chatted to the ladies about past and further holidays. Lovely day was had by all.
