About the Community Fund
The object of the Community Fund is to help the community of Weybourne. This we would like to think we have achieved since we started in 1997.
The committee has raised over £25,000 since then by their enthusiastic fundraising, whilst having a lot of fun at the same time.
Our thanks go to everyone who has supported, 'Fun Day', 'The Race Nights', 'Bonfire Night' and other fund raising events throughout the year.
Money has also been spread around the village; the church repair a vandalised window, the playing field; new equipment, The village Hall and Methodist Church with new chairs.
Not all events have been to raise money but have been for the benefit of 'The Village', these have been: the fireworks night, Christmas & Easter celebrations (these included giving presents or Easter eggs to the children). And a post Christmas lunch for our treasured senior citizens.
Our annual Funday is held on August Bank Holiday Sunday
We also hold other events throughout the year such as:
A Race Night (the next one is 28th October 2006 at the Village Hall 7:30 start with licence bar)
It's Great Fun so why not come and join in the fun. Watch the horse's race down the track -Whose horse is going to fall? -Whose horse is going to pull up short? -Whose horse is going to win? The Tension is nail biting! Come on, join in the fun. This is not a video game but real 'fake' horses
Carol Singing & Farther Christmas Is normally about a week before Christmas with carol singing outside the Village Hall. Then see Santa arrive on his sleigh then distribute presents to all the village children in his grotto. Afterwards a family disco with licensed bar. We also provide a Christmas tree with lights outside the church on Church Plain (near the bus stop).
Easter Event include: The Easter Egg Hunt with over 200 eggs - we open this solely to Weybourne village children. & Other events as advertised
