As you may know, Pitstone & Ivinghoe Entertainments (PIE) is run by volunteers from our community and they have been providing high quality entertainment to our villages for over 20 years. They arrange the Summer Festival held on Pitstone Recreation Ground and the Bonfire/Fireworks held at the Pitstone Pavilion each year. Any profits generated by these events, organised by the community for the community, are often given as grants to other community groups to further benefit our residents – in fact since 1999 over £13,000 has been donated to over 20 local clubs and organisations. For a number of reasons, PIE required a helping hand towards the cost of the 2019 bonfire/fireworks and the parish council was pleased to award a grant of £2,000 in support of this event which is regularly enjoyed by 1,200-1,300 local residents.
Please do support Pitstone & Ivinghoe Entertainments and attend their events, so that these functions can continue. This year’s summer festival will be held 14-16 June 2019 (events to be confirmed) and the bonfire/fireworks is normally held on the nearest Saturday to 5 November.
