Local businesses flying flag for village

Clanfield Online helped to mark the VE 75 celebrations last weekend. Website volunteers decorated the Drift Road area with Union flags and donated bunting and posters to the Bowls Club and the Clanfield Memorial Hall. The website is funded by local businesses, many of whom cannot work at the moment, but our members still wanted to help the community celebrate this special occasion.

Many villagers decorated their homes with bunting, whilst local shops worked flat out to ensure we had plenty of food for the celebrations in gardens and on pavements. We saluted the heroes of the past for their courage and endurance – it was wonderful to see a Spitfire overhead on Sunday! We also celebrated the present day heroes: NHS staff, care home staff, emergency services, armed forces, postal workers, delivery drivers, bin men and volunteers helping to keep everyone safe.

Clanfield Online uses business funding, every year, to light up the village with Christmas trees, plant flower beds, and support our local community groups when they need a helping hand. When the restrictions start to lift, please remember local businesses – support them as they support our village.
