Dear Orchard Community
The OPA would like to thank everyone who made our first ever Snowman Festival amazing!
We saw a phenomenal number of visitors walking around Broughton Astley enjoying your wonderful Snowmen displays. We have received some lovely comments, many requests to host again next year and even the Harborough newspaper visited!
However, we now need YOU! to spread the word!
For us to put on an event like this again we need it to be worthwhile, we have set a target of £1000, but we are not quite there yet.
Please share our Go fund me link to all your friends and family that visited the event to encourage them to donate, a massive amount of time, work and costs have gone into organising this wonderful festive weekend and we would love to do it again!
We will also share the link via your class messenger groups for ease of forwarding on to friends and family, so please look out for that.
The festival isn’t over just yet! Take a look at the Snowman Festival Facebook page, we have added a gallery of photos just in case you missed any.
The voting is still OPEN!
You can still vote for your favourites online, the winners will be announced on Sunday, apart from the Best Children’s display which will be announced Wednesday.
