In August 2006 the idea of having a large event in order to raise money for local village organisations within Maiden Newton and Frome Vauchurch, was put forward for consideration. A few subjects were considered, but the chosen theme was WWII and the 1940s.
World War Two was perhaps one of the most traumatic times in recent history, the fighting and hardships affected Europe, the Pacific and had a knock on effect throughout the world. To commemorate such hardships felt by our friends and relatives, we are holding a 1940s themed weekend which will be staged over three days, (20th, 21st, 22nd June 2008).
There will be a variety of projects to interest the whole family. These will vary from a war time dance, to a WWII re-enactment. So come along and join in the fun.
