The Pavilion Cafe is always central to any community or fund raising event taking place at the Queen Elizabeth II Playing Field.
Below are just a few of the many events that have taken place:
The 2023 Community fundraiser event for Macmillan Cancer Support took place at the end of September.
Saturday 29th October 2022 – Just some of the Community Cleanup volunteers who enjoyed hot drinks and cakes at the Pavilion Cafe as a reward for their morning of hard work.
This 2022 community event raised £715 for Macmillan Cancer Support. Despite the awful weather that afternoon it was great to see people turn out for such a worthy charity.
June 2017 – 300 of us got together at the café and marquee for a ‘Big Tea Party’ in memory of Jo Cox MP, murdered in her constituency in 2016. We were among 9.3 million people across the country honouring Jo’s memory with over 110,000 ‘Great Get Together’ events. It was not run as a fundraiser but thanks to the generosity of local people raised £600, which was shared between the Jo Cox Foundation, Ash-worth Timebank and St John’s Church.
October 2017 – Locals turned out in force for cuppas and cakes at the café in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support raising more than £550. Run by our sensational team of bakers and volunteers for a charity which does so much for so many.
December 2017 – Fairy lights and a heated awning made the cafe a lovely venue for a Christmas party. More than 50 people enjoyed food and drink at the fundraising event. All profits went to AHSRA to help towards the maintenance and improvements of the Pavilion, Playing Field and Playground.
In the run up to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June 2022 the cafe had a visit from the cardboard pop-up queen being used across our social media channels to advertise the many events taking place over the celebration weekend. She can be seen here checking out the cafe as the Queen Elizabeth II Playing Field was the venue for both the Lighting of the Beacon event on the Thursday evening and and the Village Fete event on the Sunday afternoon.
