B in the Park 2018 was a great success!
We were blessed with beautiful sunshine for B in the Park on 14th July, welcoming large crowds to our family festival to raise funds for preschool.
The children had a wonderful day filled with games, crafts, a fire engine display, Messy Church, drama and dancing, and even a well-timed flypast of the planes from the Flying Legends Airshow at Duxford! There was a mini splash zone with a popular slippy-slide to combat the heat, all followed by songs and stories around the campfire and a magical night sleeping under the stars.
The committee would like to extend a big thank you to everyone that supported us, especially all those who gave up their time to entertain the crowds, volunteered to help set up or man the bar, donated raffle prizes or lent us equipment.
B in the Park is Barkway Preschool’s main fundraiser for the year and everyone's efforts will go a long way to helping us protect this valuable resource for our children and those that will follow after them.
Take part next year
As always we like to involve as many organisations, societies and generally talented people from our villages as we can – whether to set up a stall to showcase what you do, provide some entertainment, or a demonstration for the children and families at the festival. If you would like to get involved in 2019 we would love to hear from you.
Volunteer next year
B in the Park is run by volunteers and we need lots of help before the event and on the day. From baking a cake, delivering flyers, selling raffle tickets, serving refreshments, or clearing up, do contact us if you can help - even if it is just for an hour. We would be hugely grateful for any time you can spare.
