Timsbury Fun Day

About Us

A good event needs great people, and a fantastic event needs an exceptional team.

Since our formation in June 2009, these are the committee members who have been involved in putting on Timsbury Fun Day! Some have been involved from the very beginning, and some have been helping for just a few years, but all of them are equally appreciated.

If you fancy getting involved and have ideas to share, you are welcome to join us. We have committee meetings every other month, and more frequently nearer the event. Just get in touch.

Meet the team of organisers below:
