Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th
Join us for a happy weekend in the country and help us to celebrate:
The 42nd anniversary of Kempley Daffodil Teas/Weekend.
There are pictures below of the 2016 Daffodil Weekend.
In 1975 four Kempley ladies decided to organise teas on a specific weekend to raise money for the local churches to co-incide with the native daffodils in the local area being in bloom.
Some years ago the name of this function was changed to Kempley Daffodil Weekend, and the event has been very successful since then.
The weekend is organised by a committee with the majority of Kempley people helping in various roles.
Come and see the wonderful displays of wild daffodils in the local woods and fields (some of which are designated SSSIs).
Organised walks at 10:45 a.m. (4 miles), 11 a.m. (6-7 miles)
(take a packed lunch or buy one in the village hall)
and 2:00 p.m. with a 2-mile local history walk.
Free Daff-and-Ride minibus travels around key sites at regular intervals.
The exhibition in St Edward's Church will be a Scarecrow Competition for adults and under 16s, with three prizes for each section of £20, £10 and £5
Coffees, lunches and teas from 10.30am until 5pm each day in the Village Hall.
Sales of handicrafts, produce, plants and our usual valuable draw.
Free parking at owners' risk (donations accepted).
All proceeds go to St Edwards Church Fabric Fund and Kempley Village Hall Restoration Fund.
The Daffodil Way can be walked independently on both days
See 'Woodland Walks' for details
'Daff & Ride' bus about every 20-30 minutes
Maps of walks are available from the following link: www.kempleytardis.org.uk/walks
Visit our two churches:-
St. Edward’s Church.
St. Mary’s church
will be open for visitors to view the ancient frescoes.
Daffodil Weekend is organised by an ‘ad hoc’ working party of local volunteers on behalf of the St Edward’s Church PCC.
All funds raised during the weekend are used for the benefit of the church, including the ‘Fabric Fund’.
The Friends of Kempley Churches
,the Kempley Village Hall Trust, the Second Wednesday Club and the Parish Council support the DW working party but none of these bodies has any moral, fiscal or legal responsibility for the event.
