Stalls, Sponsorship & Village Directory

A lot of work goes into the successful running of a Village Day and it would not be possible without the generous assistance of the many local businesses and organisations which lend their support by either providing prizes or lending equipment.

It may surprise you to know that it actually takes about £6000 to run a Village Day. Road closures, insurance cover and entertainments are just a few of the costs incurred. We also decorated the village with over 1 mile of bunting alone, blew up 1000 balloons, and erected 7 large marquees, all of which is achieved with local volunteer labour.

Village Directory

Due to the success of the new format we will be continuing along the same lines this year. This will be a full colour double-sided glossy pamphlet containing all the useful community numbers to keep and put by the phone. The community directory will be distributed free to all 1250 homes in Codicote with further copies available free from local stores should they be required.

The theme for this year is “Under the Sea“.

The rates for advertising are as follows:-

52x42 mm space plus directory £35.00 that’s just 2.8p per household!

Please email don.ellwood@wyevalegardencentres.co.uk if you are interested in appearing in the directory.
