Events

Easter Egg Hunt: Sunday 17th April.
 
Around 180 participants enjoyed the inaugural infant, junior, 3k and 5k events in glorious weather. We are looking forward to running the event again next year weaving a few more twists into it!
Jubilee Picnic: Sunday 5th June, Midday to 5pm.
 
Our Picnic is based around the ‘Big Jubilee Lunch’ idea of encouraging community to get to know each other a bit better and have some fun!
The Picnic will start at 12 Midday and run to around 4pm after which we will start to wind down.
We have Kasbah, a local 16 piece Swing Band with vocals, who will be doing two 45 minute sets for us. The rest of the time we will be playing recorded music through the 7 decades. There will also be a music and event quiz available for the keener ones. Also, if you fancy, please come in one of the fashions from the 7 decades 🙂.
You need to bring your own picnic, something to sit on and something to sit under & importantly, as there will be no bar on site, that’s definitely part of the BYO…
The proposed timing of the Event is:

    0800 onward the ‘heavies’ put up the marquee etc

1100-1200 people arrive and set up their picnic

1200          ‘Official Opening’ 

1200-1300 recorded music from the last 7 decades

1300-1345 Kasbah Band Set 1

1345-1415 recorded music from the last 7 decades

1415-1500 Kasbah Band Set 2

1500-1600 recorded music from the last 7 decades

1600-1700 people start to pack up and depart

1700 onward the ‘heavies’ clear the site

If you need any more information please contact the Events Group via oliversbatteryevents@gmail.com & also if being one of the ‘crew’ in setting up, the running and/or clearing up afterwards is your thing then we are very keen (!!!) to get to know you (via the email)

Later in the year::

The Scarecrow competition will run 16th-25th September with Junior and Senior cups as last year plus a new ‘collaborative’ cup. The imagination that has been seen over the last two years has been stunning 🙂

The Christmas tree will arrive on Saturday 3rd December with a mulled wine, mince pie and Carol event in the evening.

As ever, we are always hopeful for and welcome kindred spirits volunteering to help with these events, both in the organisation and on the day!!  Please contact via oliversbatteryevents@gmail.com.
