Melksham Party in the Park finds new sponsor

14th June 2019, 11:56am | By Peter Dunford |

Local company, Melksham Motor Spares has stepped up to become one of the sponsors of this year’s Melksham’s Party in the Park.

The one-day music event will celebrate its 20th anniversary at the town’s King George V Playing Field on Saturday, July 20.

The leading automotive parts distributor is hoping the sponsorship will help to raise awareness of its business.

Since it started in 2000, Melksham Party in the Park has grown over the years to become a highly popular fixture on the Wiltshire calendar, attended by hundreds of families from across the region as well as further afield.

This year’s anniversary PITP headliners are the top Take That four-piece tribute act Take@That and Bootleg Barlow, Dean Barrett.

Their show will take partygoers on a journey from the early 1990s, covering classics such as Pray, Back for Good and Never Forget through to the band’s reunion in 2006, covering more recent hits including Greatest Day, Shine and Rule the World.

The motor spares factor celebrated its 50th anniversary last year, raising £17,500 for charity from various fundraising activities held throughout 2018, including £900 from a charity cycle ride around Castle Combe Race Circuit involving staff and their families and friends.

Phil Dodd, Melksham Motor Spares’ managing director, said: “MMS has long been a champion of the local community.

“As a local business, we love supporting the community however we can, so we’re delighted to be sponsoring such a huge local event this year at Party in the Park.

“The event will be a special one as it celebrates its 20th anniversary, and will no doubt attract a huge crowd. We can’t wait for July.”

Visitors to the MMS stand will be able to enjoy giveaways plus the chance to win prizes and test their driving skills on a racing simulator.

The Melksham Party in the Park gates open at 1pm and the event runs through to 10.30pm.

None of the rides or attractions set up ready for PITP will be in operation, although the bar and food venders will be open.

King George V Playing Field is close to Melksham town centre and is easily accessible off the A3102, the Melksham to Calne road.
