Local house builder Bovis Homes was delighted to be part of a brand-new Buckinghamshire festival, which saw the community come together to enjoy an afternoon and evening of live music.
The inaugural Steeple Jam music festival took place on Saturday 9 June and saw bands and singers take to the stage to help raise money for Steeple Claydon School.
“The event was absolutely fantastic and we are thrilled to have been part of the very first Steeple Jam Music Festival,” says regional marketing manager, Heather Suffield. “Events like this are perfect for bringing communities together – so let's hope this was the first of many!”
The funds raised at the event, organised by the Friends of Steeple Claydon School, will go towards ICT and outdoor equipment.
Jo Abu-Rish, school secretary, said: “We had a fabulous turn out for the day and have received great feedback from those who came along. We are so grateful to everyone who attended and are delighted to be able to thank Bovis Homes and all of our sponsors for their support, which was essential to be able to hold this community event. We have raised a fantastic amount for Steeple Claydon School.”
Bovis Homes has recently joined the Steeple Claydon community with its Nightingale Fold location, which is located off North End road and brings a selection of four and five-bedroom homes to the area.
Along with live music, the event also included inflatable slides and entertainment for children, while adults could enjoy an array of refreshments, with real ales available and a gin and a prosecco bar.
