Chiddingfold Village Fete   Sunday 11th June 2017

May 13, 2017


Monday 29th May marks the 71st annual Brook Village Fete, (sponsored by local independent boarding and day school King Edward’s Witley)

One of the most popular and longest-running village festivals in southern England. This year, the event will be officially opened by Jane Vlach, Vicar of All Saints Church in Witley on Bank Holiday Monday, May 29th, at 1pm, on the picturesque village green opposite the Dog and Pheasant Pub. In keeping with the spirit of this time- honoured and renowned local tradition the emphasis remains on good old-fashioned family entertainment with a broad choice of attractions, designed to provide something of interest for everyone.

No-one attending the fete is likely to go hungry, as there is a tempting array of culinary treats to choose from, including the mouth-watering barbecue, tea tent, homemade cakes stall and Pimms Tent, together with stalls selling sweets, popcorn, ice-cream and candyfloss. Visitors will also be encouraged to try their luck at the tombola, while the Grand Draw Raffle will see winners take home a fabulous range of prizes.

Fete organisers are appealing to local residents for their support – regardless of the weather (!) -, as all the money raised is vital to the maintenance of Pirrie Hall and its grounds, which host the well-known cricket club, tennis club, nursery school, children’s playground and other highly valued local community clubs and activities. Pirrie Hall is a registered charity that receives no outside funding.

Ryan Gosling as Sebastian

Emma Stone as Mia

La La Land won the Oscar for Best Picture – for about two minutes
. Even after that mistake was corrected it still walked away with 6 awards, including Best Actress for Emma Stone.
Harking back to the classic Hollywood musicals with a distinctly modern flourish, this is a touching story of what happens when dreams of romance collide with ambitions..

Lion, Friday, June 2nd 8:00 pm

Starring Dev Patel as Saroo Brierley & Nicole Kidman as Sue Brierley A five-year-old Indian by is trapped on a decommissioned train, taking him over 1500 miles away from his home and family. Alone on the streets of Calcutta he barely manages to survive until he is selected for adoption by a Tasmanian couple. Years later he goes in search of his lost roots. A compelling and deeply moving true story, I have never received so many requests to show a film – including from people keen to see it a second time.

The Salesman  Friday, June 16th 8:00 pm

Starring Taraneh Alidoosti as Rana Etasami & Shahab Hosseini as Emad Etasami Winner of the Best Foreign Language Oscar (the second time in five years that director Asghar Farhadi has won that prize). Rana and Emad are an ordinary, middle-class couple, who spend their evenings after work rehearsing an amateur production of Death of a Salesman. When an earthquake makes their flat unsafe they temporarily move into a colleague's apartment, unaware of the history of his previous tenants. Soon it is not just rehearsals which are turned upside down. A clever and subtle family drama that poses many questions: not only 'whodunnit?', but more importantly 'why?'

I've written many pieces in our Parish magazine about our bells;
at St Mary's Chiddingfold John.

By now I hope you appreciate that we have a very special legacy in these bells, and I do hope that the village is a much better place for having them. (It would be a very sad thing to NOT have them surely!)

However, I, and the other bell ringers, are mindful that our ringing is intrusive, (loud).
Despite our best efforts, there are occasions when the music is not at it's best, particularly when practice and learners are involved! Whilst we have some sound-control, the sound of the bells does reach parts that other music does not!

So I am asking the village, and anyone else affected, to let me know your views - More
