Dorridge Day 2017 – Up in the Air

Welcome to Dorridge Day
We are taking Dorridge Day up to new heights this year with our ‘Up in the Air’ theme. We hope you enjoy the spectacle of our tethered Hot Air Balloon and our many up in the air acts. We have also introduced a classic car show this year and have some really exciting cars coming.

This annual event has been part of the local community for over 50 years. Dorridge Day is organised and run by unpaid volunteers in Round Table and Ladies Circle with help from many other clubs and organisations such as 41club, Tangent, Knowle and Dorridge Lions, Challenge Adventure Group, Scouts, Fastaid and this year our classic car owners. On behalf of Round Table I would like to thank the many people in these and other supporting organisations. We aim to bring you a wonderful day where all proceeds from the event go to charities and good causes.

We have stalls from local community groups and businesses and we’ve tried to make the day more affordable with an unlimited pass to the ‘inflatable madness’ attractions. Neil Murdoch our wonderful compare is back to take us through some incredible events in the main arena. We are delighted to welcome Above and Beyond high flying trapeze artists, Arden Falconry, the Air Cadets, Starstruck and Learning Curves to provide ‘up in the air’ acts. This year we also have a tethered hot air balloon, this is the first time we have had flying aircraft and there is a chance to fly in it for people giving donations to charity.

To enter into the spirit of the event then come in fancy dress and have a chance of winning a prize in the main arena. Who will you come as? A bird, a plane, or a flying super hero?

Every year we like to recognise some of the Young people in our community that give some of their time to help others. To us, these are Young Heroes. It is always inspiring to hear the stories about the great things young people are doing. We will be presenting the award to our Young Hero in the main arena. If you know of a young person that you think we should award then please let us know.

Thank you to all of our sponsors listed in this programme. Thanks especially to our main sponsor Standley & Co Solicitors. Without the support of our sponsors and your attendance, Dorridge Day would not happen.

I want to take this opportunity to thank the members of Round Table and their families that have given many hours of their family time to organise this event, even giving time whilst on holidays, thank you.

Dorridge Day is a community event so if you have new ideas and want to help make our event better then please get in touch.

Most of all, have a great day.

Martin Guy
Round Table & Dorridge Day Chairman
