Full details, timings and a map of all events were published in the free GMJW Event Guide, a printed colour brochure which has been distributed to all houses in Marcham and a flyer in the rest of the MADNews area. Details of events will also be displayed at Marcham Post Office.
The main purpose of GMJW is to celebrate the Jubilee and for all to have a great time. After costs for the GMJW have been covered, any surplus will be shared between funds for future local community facilities and donations to selected charities beyond Marcham.
Many people will be working hard planning this weekend. We will need many pairs of hands to help with small jobs – such as fetching and carrying, and stewarding during the weekend – if you can help, or if you have ideas for other events we can include in the weekend, please contact Jim or Denise Asher (391727) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is the big event that everyone will be talking about!
Marcham will be opening up, not just to local people from Marcham and District, but aiming to attract visitors from further afield. Please bring your friends and families - don’t be the one to miss this great occasion!
