Nearly 2,000 people enjoyed a great day out at the Storrington Village Day on Saturday.
Local bands, schoolchildren singers and dancers, magic and entertainment shows, Morris Dancers, a funfair and huge variety of interesting stalls and skills challenges entertained local folk/families enjoying a special day in the sunshine.
The hot weather regrettable meant the cancellation of the dog show on the advice of the RSPCA. Car Boot Sale, SADCASE Classic Car display, Lions Giant Book Sale and Funfair kept everyone entertained. The Storrington Football club manned the Beer & BBQ tent and Rotary Wives served tea and cakes all afternoon.
But the Arundel & South Downs MP Nick Herbert was on hand to draw the winning Grand Raffle tickets before the Chance Singers brought the day to a close.
Village Day Chairman Tony Vaughan was full of praise for everyone who made the day special. “I was delighted to see so many people enjoying the Village Day. Reviving this local community event has been a great success we are looking to continuing it next year. We rely on Rotary, our generous sponsors and all those who participated on the day and ensured its smooth running. Proceeds from the event will benefit local children and local young people causes.”
