Dunchurch Festival Group

The Dunchurch Festival Group is made up of local people who want to give a little back to the community. It raises money and gives it to local organisations/charities that have a need. If you are a local good cause and would like to apply for funds see our list of contacts. Why not become a member of the committee yourself or just help out now and then, all you have to do is contact us.

Our meetings are held at 7:30pm at the Dunchurch Village Hall.

Minutes are available by clicking the dates below.

Fete Procession Announcement 2018

This year’s Dunchurch Fete procession on 16th June is under threat again.

We have had to cut back the procession as we cannot justify spending the large amount it costs to get a management company to close the road.

For almost 40 years the procession has been run by the us without a problem but over the last few years more stringent controls have been put in place by authorities resulting a ban on use of float trailers, shortening the route and having to get an outside company to manage the road closure.

Now it is the rising cost of getting the traffic management company which is the limiting factor, costing almost £1000 that the committee cannot afford.

Undeterred, we have come up with a solution : Rather than going from the church at the centre of the village using the road to the Fete field at the Village hall, the procession will be starting opposite the Dun Cow car park and going along the footpath next to the road.

Chair of the Fete Committee, Rob Collings, says :

The procession had been going on in the village for 30 years and we cannot let it fade away due to bureaucracy and cost.

The money spent on a management company to close the road will now be going to local good causes instead, but we will still have the procession, just not as big as it was and not using the road

He urged people to come out to support the procession and the fete. He added :

The revised route will be going along the Rugby Road path at 12:30 on Saturday 16th June and the Fete will be as colourful and lively as ever with the Sambassadors of Groove drum band leading us out. We have all the Village organisations walking with their floats and the fete field has all the usual stalls but also circus skills, a dog show, alpacas, cars, bands and dancers etc”.

Please support your local community, support the Village Fete.

Circles Network Donation

A warm thank you to everyone who attended The Big Spring Quiz 2018 in March.

We had another great turnout and as a result of the 'Heads & Tails' game during the break we were able to make a donation of £100 to Circles Network.

Well done to all involved!

 

Great Scott! It's happened again!

Local larkers have been at it again in the village and the statue of Lord John is today, a very rare sort of bear!

"Bears like Paddington are very rare. And a good thing too, if you ask me, or it would cost us a small fortune in marmalade."

Please look after this bear. Thank you.

 

Dunchurch Development Survey

A Neighbourhood Development Plan together with the (RBC) Local Plan sets out the policies against which planning applications are assessed. The Neighbourhood Plan cannot block development that is part of the Local Plan but it can shape and influence where that development can go and what it will look like.

This survey, conducted by the Save Dunchurch Action Group, is designed to help the Parish Council understand the views, aspirations, wants and needs of local people, not only in relation to the Neighbourhood Plan but more generally too.

This is YOUR opportunity to help shape our community. Please tell us what you think. 

The Survey Is Now Closed.

Thank you for your participation
