Melbourn Family Fun Day Saturday 26 June 2021

Following yesterday’s government announcement that the end of lockdown will be delayed, Melbourn Fete Committee had no alternative but to cancel Melbourn Family Fun Day on 26th June. This is a great disappointment to us as I’m sure it will be to residents  who have supported this village celebration of the end of lockdown.  In spite of this disappointment we do have other plans including Melbourn Open Gardens on 4th July, as we are confident that this event can be held successfully within the current covid restrictions.  All profits from this event are being donated to Homestart. We are also planning Turn On To Christmas later this year and the next Melbourn Village Fete in June 2022

Join us to celebrate the end of lockdown at Melbourn Family Fun Day on Saturday 26th June. Sadly we’ve had to postpone the Fete again because of financial uncertainties caused by the pandemic. However, we are organising a Family Fun Day taking some of the favourite elements of the fete and incorporating them into a scaled down event. Please make a note in your diary that our Fun Day will be on Saturday 26 June at the village playing fields near Melbourn Sports Pavilion starting at 12 and running for the afternoon. Obviously this all depends on the continued relaxation of the remaining Covid restrictions, but there are hopeful signs that this may happen. The final decision to hold the Fun Day will be made during the week leading up to the Fun Day and will be confirmed through social media and on our website

It will be a free event with some free fairground rides for younger children. In addition, there will be some favourites like egg throwing, tug of war, “beat the goalie” organised by our friends at Melbourn Dynamos FC and a brilliant local singer, Tom Froggatt, will be entertaining us. There will also be an ice cream van and lovely refreshments for sale from Homestart in the Pavilion Tea Room.

This will be a chance for us all to share and enjoy an afternoon with some free entertainment and mark the start of what we hope will be a life beyond this pandemic and a return to a more normal way of life. We are grateful to our sponsors and Melbourn Parish Council for their support.
