Picnic at the Pavilion on 10th July 2016
Almost 300 people came along to the “Picnic at the Pavilion”, on Sunday 10th July. After an uncertain start, the weather was kind and the sun shone on Smalley. Thanks go to the Cricket Club for being so accommodating and to the Mayor of Amber Valley for attending.
The venue was perfect. Activities including Splat the Rat, Spin & Win, Golf, Mini Football, Name the Teddy, and a Singalong kept the children entertained. The DJ, music and commentary created the desired atmosphere, as did performances by the Teapot Singers and Kilburn Community Choir. Village groups were represented and could showcase their work e.g. Smalley Art Group. The Grand Raffle, Tombola and Know Your Smalley Quiz provided interest, a competitive edge, and some income towards establishing our group and future events.
The organising committee saw the day as a resounding success. The relaxed atmosphere, the range activities many of which were free, the opportunity for villagers to get together; all served to achieve our stated aim of “creating opportunities for the whole village to come together, facilitating events which are inclusive for everyone in order to promote a caring sharing community in Smalley”.
