Thank you to everyone who attended the Olympic Family Festival and for supporting our event.
Everyone had a great day competing in the 5 disciplines. Our countries had been training hard and great skills were needed to complete the competition.
The winners were
Gold Medalists were Team France
Silver Medalists were Team Brazil
Bronze Medalists were Team USA.
Competitors rehydrated at our Olympic bar, refuelled at the barbeque and replenished lost sugar at our fantastic cake stand. Fun was had by all at the Olympic bingo with music throughout from The Spokes.
The Orchard Ground Committee would like to thank, Lynne at Art Sugar Deco for her two amazing Olympic cakes, Chris George at The Unicorn Pub, Parrots the Butchers, for all their generous donations.
Thank you too to The Spokes for rockin’ the festival, to all the cake bakers, and of course a big thank you to the Gibby and Darlington Family for the use of the beautiful Teepee’s.

Community SpeedWatch is a traffic monitoring scheme coordinated by Thames Valley Police in partnership with local councils and other stakeholders, but managed and run by
neighbourhood policing teams and Community Volunteers.
How it works
• SpeedWatch can only operate in areas up to a 40 miles per hour speed limit. Community Volunteers work alongside Thames Valley Police officers to identify vehicles which break the speed limit.
• Registration numbers are entered onto a database which produces a letter informing the registered owner that their vehicle has been noted to have exceeded the speed limit and asking them not to do so in the future.
• If the same registration number is logged in another SpeedWatch anywhere within Thames Valley, the owner will receive another letter advising them that if they are caught a third time, the information will be passed onto Roads Policing, who may take further action.
Volunteers must be over 18 years old, and we need a minimum of six Community Volunteers to make this work. If you would like to be involved and reduce the speed of vehicles in the village please contact Mike Bush at 14 Whitchurch Road, or by e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org
