Bonfire pictures 2013

 

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’

Chairman’s Charity for 2011 / 2012

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 £3750.
