Wondering what to do on the evening of Wednesday 16th December 2015?!

Wonder no more!

The BPFA have been selected to take Father Christmas on a tour around Chesham as part of The Rotary Christmas Float. 

This is a great opportunity to support not only us, but lots of amazing local causes. The money collected across all 10 nights will be split equally between the charities.

We are looking for 15 volunteers to help us on the night. Timings are to be confirmed, but it's likely to be between 6pm and 9pm.

Please call (07740 197680) or email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) if you would like to help. We promise to have a lot of fun and the children will love it too!

Hi, I’m Jacqui , I live on Lye Green Road and I am the Co-Chair of the Botley Playing Field Association. Apart from being involved in the BPFA, I am a mum to two cheeky young children and I run my own Occupational Psychology business.

I decided to get involved in the BPFA as I saw the passion and drive the Chair, Lauren, had for the playground project on our facebook group. At the time, she was doing a lot of the work herself and so I volunteered to help. Since I joined the committee, we have been so fortunate to get lots more support from the community and our committee has grown rapidly. It’s exciting to see things taking shape.

We are learning so much along the way on this journey – it’s definitely been a bumpy road so far and a big eye opener! I love the fact we are involving the community in the process, including ideas for the play park design. The more we all put in together, the better it will be. I love the fact the community want a trampoline, I know my kids will love this!

If you are reading this and want to help, that would be amazing! It doesn’t matter if you can only donate one hour of your time. Or just keep in touch with our progress on facebook, through our leaflet drops, our meetings and our website. Thanks!
