Village Day – Sat 9th July:Theme is “Rio Jungle” to coincide with the Olympic Games. Starting late June the Amazon Jungle Safari trail around the village and Friday 8th July disco on the village green. This year’s parade, once again kindly sponsored by T.W.Plummer & Sons, will create a huge rumble through the streets of Wivelsfield as the theme is going to be carnival! Maybe you have always wanted to samba; maybe you play the steel drums; maybe you have always wanted to wear a costume made entirely of feathers; whatever it is come and join the fun! On the green will be the usual fun and games with a few additions this year. We have ‘Think Bikes’ BMX Stunt Team and you will be able to get up close and personal with some snakes and other exotic mini beasts from RepTylers Mobile Zoo. For those of you who prefer a friendlier or cuddlier animal, you can visit Lyndsay from Animal School who will be bringing her rabbits and guinea pigs for you to cuddle. The East Grinstead Model Engineers return with their miniature steam railway, as will the Classic Car Display, alongside the other sideshows and rides. The Mid Sussex Veterinary Clinic are Sponsoring the Dog Show once again, with proceeds going to Court Meadow RDA. The Grand Competition also returns so look out for detail of this.

The main arena will host Children’s Races; the hilarious Alun Gedrych Ltd sponsored Pantomime Donkey Derby; the hotly contested Space Hopper Donkey Derby; and the truly gladiatorial Tug-of-War Competition, this year sponsored by Thomas’ Fencing. Other sponsors include BSW (Scaynes Hill) Central Heating Engineers and Norman Hobbs, Haywards Heath.

Wivelsfield Village Day is a non-profit event with clubs and charities retaining the funds that they earn during the day.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the local businesses who are supportive of this event. You can find out more about them and our day on our website and Facebook page. www.wivelsfieldvillageday.org.uk
