Lillington will once again be holding a community fun day this summer.

The five churches in Lillington and their community partners have worked together to organise the event after a successful fundraising effort.

The fun day will take place on Saturday August 30, from 2-6pm on the Holt, next to Lillington Free Church in Cubbington Road.

It is the third year in a row that the event has been staged - and organisers said they expect 2,000 people to attend.

This year the theme will commemorate the centenary of the start of World War 1.

A central marquee will house exhibits from St John’s Museum, the Lillington History Society and local schools - as well as performances of stories and songs from World War 1.

As a memento of the day, organisers are giving away 1,000 replica copies of St John’s Gospel that were given to troops as they went overseas.

Local singers and groups will provide music, songs and dance, and sports clubs and societies will be running events and providing coaching.

Entertainment in the field will include bouncy castles, assault course, climbing wall, circus skills and face painting.

Christine Butler, from the organising group LCFD 2014, said: “Members of the organising group for the Lillington Community Fun Day 2014 are very much looking forward to this year’s event at the end of August.

“We are pleased to announce that the chair of Warwick District Council, Cllr Clare Sawdon, will be opening the proceedings for us at 2pm on August 30 and that Leamington town mayor, Cllr John Knight, will also be in 
attendance during the afternoon.”
