We are responsible for the provision and maintenance of the Children's playground
Events for 2022
The Village Community Committee is here to provide and co-ordinate social events within the village to provide and maintain the village playground. Funds earned from these events pay for any repairs to the equipment and annual insurance, and to accumulate funding for replacement of equipment of high cost when required.
We are particularly keen to encourage families within the village with children who use the playground and field to provide input to these events to keep the playground up and running.
In 2022 ... Back by popular demand the Barn Dance happened on Saturday 2nd July. Our regular band "Stone the Crows" kept us moving on a fun evening with a fantastic barbecue. The money raised for the upkeep and development of the children's play area was an incredible £1444.54, and a very enjoyable evening was had by all.
Our Village Fete and Dog Show took place on Saturday 30th July in the grounds of The Red Lion pub. The fun dog show (sponsored by Burns Pet Food) created a lot of interest in the village and the surrounding area and, thanks to the work of all of the groups within Castle Eaton, the dog show, an amazing raffle, a huge selection of fantastic cakes, a number of stalls, including the plant stall and bottle stall, PLUS the iconic Duck Race raised a magnificent sum of £1253.80.
As previously funds from the fete will be shared between the village groups who take part.
We also intend to go Carol “Singing” around the village before Christmas 2022 to raise funds for a nominated charity (to be decided).
