Father Christmas will be doing his rounds of Twyford between the 6th and the 21st of December. He will also be making his annual appearance at the Twyford Village Christmas fayre on the 5th.
Schedule of routes will follow shortly.
An excellent evening in beautiful sunshine playing a Human Table football tournament against other Tables in our area and also Tablers from around the country.
The event was organised by Maidenhead Round Table and brilliantly hosted for us by SportsAble in Maidenhead, a charity “dedicated to the promotion of awareness of disability through sport and recreational activity“. Thanks to both.
The evening finished with a lovely curry banquet for all.
Twyford, as last year’s overall victors, were disappointed not to reach the knockout stages this year.
We’re very proud that a few blokes can put on one of Twyford’s biggest annual community events in our spare time. We have a lot of fun building our bonfire every year on the last Friday of October. Tablers pull together to pile palettes, topping them off with the garden waste of the great and the good of Twyford. Always lots of hard work (which some of us are more used to than others) and a lot of laughing. Saturday is spent fetching and erecting the fireworks and tents, selling tickets and preparing all the catering. Again it’s alot of work but, if the weather is good, we make some serious money for local good causes, this year approximately £9000
If you’re interested in helping out next year, please get in touch to find out about joining us.
Well done to James for the overall organisation of a successful event this year.
The Twyford Advertiser were there on the night and also have some great pictures of the from the event’
Iffy weather, lots of goose debris but some great times
Some photographs from our bonfire build and fireworks at the weekend.
One of the privileges of being Chairman for the year is being able to choose a personal charity to donate too. I nominated the “Duchess of Kent House Charity” as my Chairmans Charity for the year.
The Duchess of Kent House Charity is our local Hospice Charity based in Reading providing Family and Bereavement support for local patents with life-shortening diseases.
It was my pleasure to present George Solly, Director of Fund-raising a cheque for Â£3750.
