Message from The Friends of Bedfordshire Society:

I am writing to you on behalf of the Friends of Bedfordshire Society. You may be familiar with us and what we do. Our aim is to promote the county of Bedfordshire from within. One of our main projects, as you may be aware, is Bedfordshire Day, which is our annual celebration of the county. It happens every year on the 28th November. 

We are again urging as many village and town councils across the county to take part. We would very much like to hear what plans you might have for this years Bedfordshire Day. Also if we can help in any way, please do let us know. Last year we had many councils flying the Bedfordshire county flag and if you were one of them we truly thank you and hope that you will fly your flag again this year.

We would very much appreciate it if you could also spread the word about Bedfordshire Day however possible. If you have any social media or village newsletters we would very much appreciate it if you could encourage your residents to take part also.

Examples of involvment include celebrations in local pubs, fun days at local churches and community centers, special guided tours by local historians, special offers in shops, Bedfordshire Clangers as a special in Café's and restaurants, flying the county flag, sporting tournaments, producing souveniers for the day, etc. etc.

The above list are just a few examples of previous ideas which have taken place across the county and is by no means a limit. We want Bedfordshire Day to be a force to help bring the community together and so different and unique ideas are encouraged.

I hope you are encouraged by this message and would like to take your own Bedfordshire day event further. Please feel free to get back to me whenever you like if you have any questions or, as mentioned, think that we can help further. I look forward to hearing from you.


Kind Regards

Luke Blackstaffe
