Good causes benefit from share of £1,500

BROADWINDSOR Jubilee Group has made a bumper £1,500 payout 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.

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.”

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.

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.

Other activities included 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
