Party in the (car) Park – 24 August 2019

Don’t miss Upwey’s own Party in the Park. (Well, the car park, anyway.)

On 24 August there’ll be a great party in the Church Car Park in Church St, with music, a bar, and a prize raffle.

Entry is free and everyone is welcome, members and non-members. Bring your own food. Tables and chairs will be provided but with limited supply and heavy demand it’s essential to ring to book your places:
