The school will be using the Paddock in Finches Lane during the school day for outside learning and play time. Therefore, because it is Term time and in line with Government guidance, we ask that the Paddock is not used by children not at school or the community during the school day.
Thank You.

Baydon News Diary for the Week
commencing:-


75th Anniversary
15TH AUGUST 2020

Whilst VE Day marked the end of the war in Europe in May 1945, many thousands of Armed Forces personnel were still involved in bitter fighting in the Far East. Victory over Japan would come at a heavy price, and Victory over Japan Day (VJ Day) marks the day Japan surrendered on the 15 August 1945, which in effect ended the Second World War.

Following on from VE Day, when individual Street Parties took place in the village, the Parish Council think it would be great to celebrate VJ Day by everyone celebrating together in the Paddock and bringing their own food and drink. Obviously following the social distancing guidelines.

Councillors ask if anyone would be willing to come forward to help lead the event, with support from the Parish Council, along with any local musicians who would be happy to provide entertainment.
If interested, please contact:
