Calverhall Family Day started over 50 years ago as a garden fete to raise money for both Ightfield and Calverhall Churches. The fete was and still is organised by a sub committee of the Parochial Church Council.
The day has gradually increased in size over the years. Some of the money raised now goes towards a Community Fund which has been set up to fund educational bursaries and community projects. The churches in Ightfield and Calverhall use the funds raised for the day to day running and ongoing upkeep.
The day now attracts in the region of 3,000 people. Other events organised through the year include a plant sale, Flower and Produce show and the famous ‘Big Breakfast’.
We would like to thank everyone both past and present for all their time and effort in making the Ightfield and Calverhall Family Day the huge success that it is. Lastly we are always looking for new people to help whether on the committee or helping on the day so if you are interested please see our contact page
