Dear Big Local
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody connected with Thurcroft Big Local as you can see that without our help I dont know if we would have been able to complete our bowls club improvements for all ages to enjoy.
Thurcroft Welfare Bowls Club
A fantastic afternoon to honour 100 years of the end of World War one was held at Thurcroft Bottom Club with the support of Thurcroft Big Local.
140 people attended and raised £300 for Help for Heroes and Royal British Legion from the raffle and bingo.
People of all ages put together the poppy banner and Lindsay McMahon constructed the poppy balloon.
A lot of hard work was put in to make the event a success with the whole village from young to old involved with a buffet and live entertainment.

After many years of dedicated commitment and hard work Diane Oxley has now resigned from the Thurcroft Big Local Partnership.
Her contribution to the work of the Partnership and its legacy has been phenomenal. She has led on many events particularly through her leadership and great organisation the Annual Thurcroft Gala has been such a success over the last few years.
Diane has ensured that Thurcroft residents have been at the heart of all decision making in Big Local. She has been particularly passionate in ensuring young people’s contribution and voices have been heard. She was also an active member of the Small Grants Panel.
Steve Ruffle from Rotherham Federation said “its not just Diana’s wonderful home made scones I will miss. She embodied what was the heart of Big Local – she cares about her own village and community and is a doer. When things need doing Diane would make them happen and do the necessary work to make sure they did.”
Everyone would like to thank Diane for her fantastic contribution to Thurcoft Big Local and we all wish her best for the future

Thakyou to all those who worked so hard to make Thurcroft Gala 2018 such a success. Lucky it wasn’t on Sunday!!
If you would like to help organise the gala and events in Thurcroft in the future please contact us.
To Gala members
Would you please accept the enclosed cheque for £25 to be placed in the funds for Thurcroft Gala which was held on Thursday 28th July 2018.
I was unable to attend the event as I was ill and trust that this donation will help towards the funds. I trust that all went well.
