The Orsett Village Fun Run and Fun Day has been running since the Queen’s Jubilee. Initially, just for villagers, it raised it’s funds through dances and raffles and general good nature but the committee who run the show are looking to move on and one of it’s longest serving and most diligent members ,Tracy Pigg ,is looking to hand over the reins.
They have never advertised the day or pushed for people outside of the village to attend and that’s the way they liked it. They have tried Bank Holiday’s, sundays and this year a saturday and unusually for them they were blessed with great weather.
I sincerely hope someone comes forward to take over, and its hopeful as the village population has almost doubled in the last few years . The Community Forum couldn’t find a chairman recently, lets hope the fun day can.
