Twyford Together Fun Run 2016

Foreword by Daniel Taylor, Chairman, Twyford Together

Welcome to our new look Charity Family Fun

Run programme! This is the fifth year of this

great event and we hope to raise even more

money for our lovely local charities - see

page 5 for more information about them. Over

the last four fun runs, we have raised nearly

£15,000 thanks to your help!

A key passion of mine since becoming

Chairman of Twyford Village Partnership is

raising awareness of what we do. With this in

mind, we’ve changed our name from Twyford

Village Partnership to Twyford Together and

introduced a new logo. The rebrand reflects

what we are today: a growing network of

local businesses, residents, groups, schools,

churches, councils and charities that work

together for the benefit of the community.

What people may not realise is that Twyford

Together only exists thanks to a group of

volunteers who generously give up their time

to plan and organise many of the village’s

popular events (see our calendar on page 9).

Mullie Estate

Agents are founder

members of our

business forum and

have won a series of

our Annual Awards – The ‘Environment Award’

in 2011, the ‘Community Award’ in 2014, and

last year were runners up in the prestigious


such an award-winning company?

This family-run business has become a key

part of our local community, and is the ‘go

to’ partner for many village events and

activities. They sponsor Twyford Comets, and

The Fun Run is a great

example of this and

I’d like to thank all

our members and

volunteerswho have

been involved: Mullie,

Round & About, RG10,

ABL Photography, Julian Clark Creative, 1st

Twyford Scouts, Polehampton PTA, The Piggott

School, Happy Hours Pre-School, St Mary’s

Church, First Responders, Ian Wisdom, Helen

Ferguson (Fun Run Co-ordinator) and Gordon


But this list is not complete without YOU! We

need you to take part and ‘Run Together’ for

charity. There are races for children in different

age groups and for adults, whether running as

individuals or as part of a team (see page 7).
