Eynsham Carnival 70th Year - Sat 2 July 2016
2016 WAS THE 70TH YEAR OF THE EYNSHAM CARNIVAL – A GREAT VILLAGE TRADITION!
The annual Eynsham Carnival is one of the oldest of its kind in the county. It began after the Second World War and is always held at the Eynsham recreation ground on the first Saturday in July. On the day we have a shirt race, parade through the village (with floats and prizes), stalls and many events in the Carnival Ring in the afternoon.
The Carnival is planned and provided each year by a volunteer Committee, most of whom live in the village. The Committee is supported by local organisations, who provide help and support during the year and particularly on the day itself when we rely on many willing extra volunteers.
Eynsham Community Day - Sat 18 June 2016
The Eynsham Community Day was held at Eynsham Village Hall on Saturday 18 June and will be open to the public from 10:00 to 16:00. The purpose of the day was to give an opportunity for all sorts of local groups, clubs, charities and other organisations to publicise themselves, and for the general public to come and see what's on offer and to be aware of what a huge range of activites are available in their community.
Charity Summer Ball - Sat 4 June 2016
Event with Bartholomews Players - Fri 13 May 2016On Friday 13 May 2016 there was a joint event with Bartholomew Players - a two course meal followed by production of "Relative Values" by Noel Coward. This light comedy looked at the breakdown of social etiquette in 1950's Britain, when the young Lord of the Manor deigns to marry a (shock / horror!!) common movie starlet!! Written with Coward's dry wit and classic one-liners.
Charity Film Night - April 2016
A successsful evening for Rotary and one which will be repeated next year.
