2015 Village Activities & how they went
2015 Fete 20.6.15
The final total of the money raised at this year's fete is £4,300 in round numbers. That is an excellent result, so thanks again for all the help. Thanks too to those who have given us feedback.
We have a round up meeting soon and we hope to capture best practice for next year.
Party in the Park 5.7.15
3 - 5pm
Following last year's successful event 'Plan A' invited all Alvescot residents to our FREE Party in the park. There was food, soft drinks & plenty of games available e.g. rounder's tennis, football & kwik cricket.
It was recommended to bring a chair or picnic blanket to enjoy some family fun & games.
Held at "The Rec" Alvescot Playing Field & MUGA
How it went:-
It was very successful despite the showers early on which put a few people off, we still had a good turn out of brave villagers who weren't too bothered about the rain, we had a great game of football, rounders & tennis going followed by a tasty barbecue. Speaking to a few of the youngsters afterwards they would definitely like to do it again, so watch this space !
Saturday 5th September, 6.45pm
Safari Supper, it's a very good way to meet new frineds in the Village, and a fun evening, as well as raising money for St. Peter's Church? Drinks and canapes were served in the Church at 6.45pm, and then peple split into groups and walk to different houses through the village where our hosts provided either a starter, main course, or pudding, ending at a final stop for coffee and a nightcap. Tickets were £ 50 per couple to include drinks / canapes / 3 course meal, wine and coffee.

SAFARI SUPPER 2 51 Alvescotians and a few friends went on Safari on Saturday 5th September in aid of St. Peter’s Church, with incredible results. The group met at the church for a sparkling reception with delicious canapes, then opened their envelopes to reveal the name of their starter host. The church was abandoned, save for 8 who were entertained there, with the Safari moving around the Village to different hosts for starter, main and pudding, before ending in a final location for cheese, coffee and liqueurs. We held a small raffle to boost the funds on the night, and made a wonderful total of £1,600, which will increase to a magnificent £2,000 with Gift Aid. A great ‘team Alvescot’ result, we’re extremely grateful to those who donated wine, and who hosted courses welcoming old friends and new into their homes. Well done everyone!
As you know, we had raised £1,275 at the start of the evening, the raffle made £500, with half going to the church, so the final donation will be £1,525 – which will increase to a fantastic £1,906.25 with Gift Aid, a great result.
Look forward to seeing you all again soon…..
STOP PRESS: Thought you’d like to know that due to a very kind anonymous donation, the revised total being donated is £1,600, so with Gift Aid now reaches a magnificent £2,000….
We have a wonderful village…… Ann Cadogan
Saturday 12th September Ride & Stride
This is a fundraising event organised by The Oxforshire Historic Churches Trust. It asks for people to be sponsored with walks or cycle rides between churches. Proceeds raised by individuals are split between the Trust and a church of your choice. You can do 3 churches - or as many as you want to do & just need a few sponsors to take part. Could anyone ride or stride for St. Peter's Church? if so please contact Tessa on 01993 841357

Bonefire Night & Fireworks Thursday 5th November 2012
This event took place which was most successful, on our playing field. Although the weather was unkind with continious drizzle for the event & rain before the fireworks were the best I have seen in the village. As usual the bonefire was away from the visitors as was the lightenting of the fireworks. One firework/rocket did go astray & landed in the play park, but as usual it had been made into a no go area. On sale was mulled wine, non alcoholic drinks & hotdogs. As we entered the playing field area Becky was shaking her bucket for donations to assist with the costs of the display which was to follow in spectacular fashion. The fire was lit at 6.15 with the firework display staring at 6.45.
Thank you for the people who organised the event & those that worked behind the scenes & on the night to make a a most enjoyable evening. It was attended by many not from the village, with children that attended the school & their siblings & frineds from the local area.
