Big Village Party

The Hadlow Down Summer Fayre Committee are bringing the Fayre back to the Playing Field on Saturday June 30th after a couple of years at Tinkers Park while the football pitch drainage project was in progress. Planning is still in it's early stages but a Village Party is planned building on the success of last year's Celebrate Party.

There will be live bands, silent disco, bouncy castle, food and drink. And probably all sorts of other attractions. More news as soon as we have it.

Steam Rally Fundraising Stall

Steam Rally stall

After much sucessful "re-merchandising" (thanks for the new word, Sarah) we are pleased to say that the stall raised an incredible £1257 almost twice last year's total. Many thanks to those who helped, supplied stock, and of course re-homed all the lovely treasures.

Playing Field Projects 2018

We have a number of projects in the pipeline for 2018. These include:

  • A new surfaced path leading to the new football pitch.
  • Making a new picnic area to the left of the main gate.
  • Trimming of trees and brambles along the SW boundary.

Dates will be announced here. Please come along to help. We usually organise bacon rolls, tea, coffee or even a few beers!
