On Saturday 31st October SPPC will be hosting an event for the whole
village in support of the BBC Children in Need in the Village centre
Come along with the family and enjoy the fun and events. With so much of
the village taking part there will be something for everyone so bookmark
this page to keep up to date with the schedule for the evening.
As the name suggests the main thrust of the evening is having your photo taken, SPPC will have three different sets. All fees are minimum suggested - please feel free to offer more.
Booking in advance is advisable.
The Spooky Halloween set
With the children all dressed up
in their halloween costumes bring them along for a photograph in our spooky set.
The Portrait studio
For those that want to improve their profile of social media why not have a portrait taken, or with Christmas fast approaching get the family together for a group shot.
It's all about having fun, crazy costumes, silly accessories, bring a few friends and have a real laugh.
£10 is our suggested donation, if you can only donate £5 then that is fine, but if you can donate £20 then every time you look at you photo you will feel a warm glow!

One for the kid in all of us
8th October 2015
Delta Force UK have very kindly donated tickets for 10 people worth £100 to spend the day paintballing. This is not only a great idea for someone who might have outgrown a birthday party at home and would really enjoy battling with friends instead but is also perfect for those of us that are still young at heart and would love to recapture our youth as well the various bases during this full day of battles.
Why not get together with a group of friends and really put in a substantial bid to secure this lot, or for any "best men" out there what a great way to start off your stag do!
How do I get the photo's?
There are a number of options that we will be happy to talk you through on the evening but by far the easiest way - once you have made our suggested minimum donation of £10 for a studio quality photo - is to deliver it electronically in high resolution for printing in whatever format you wish. You get the high resolution jpeg and can make as many prints as you want.
The Photo Booth set up will include a print that you can take away with you on the evening - extra prints will require a further donation!
For an extra charge we can get the photo printed on archival quality paper to the size of your choice and even get it framed but as these costs vary we can discuss this option with you on the evening. Any extra fees for this service unfortunately are not donated to Children In Need.
Face painting for Halloween
Netmums have some great little videos on tips suggestions and ideas for facepainting, so once you have spent so much time and care getting your children all dressed up for halloween what you really need is a spooky photograph of them in our creepy set.
Whilst you do not need to book in advance we do suggest that with a lot of children around on the evening it might be an idea to book a time slot to avoid any delays in getting back out to scare the neighbours!
When a quick portrait just isn't enough
23rd October 2015
OneDay Photography has donated a full photo session for our auction. So if you come along on the evening and have a few photos taken at our setups and feel that you want even more then place a bid for this great lot. The session can take place either at your home or at a local location of your choice - Kevin will obviously be in touch with the winning bid both to thank you and discuss exactly what you want, so whether it is a family walk around Black Park, the children playing at home or maybe just some lovely individual portraits - it's your choice.
