I just wanted to write and thank the Downley Parish Council for letting us use Mannings Field for our circus event.  It was a brilliant evening and was amazing to hear all the children laughing so much!  We're busy adding up all the numbers so not sure how much we have made but it was certainly worth it to see everyone having such fun!

Thank you so much!

With kindest regards
