Chiddingfold Neighbourhood Plan – Public Consultation Friday 27 January 4pm-9pm & Saturday 28 January 10am-5pm in the Village Hall
The next stage of public consultation on the detail of our Neighbourhood Plan will take place over two days in January in the Village Hall
and we hope as many of you as possible will come to give us your views on a range of issues including possible sites for new housing.
What is a Neighbourhood Plan? To remind you, these are relatively new planning documents which were introduced by the Localism Act which came into force in April 2012. They are intended to give local communities a greater say in guiding the future development and growth of an area and relate to the use and development of land and associated social, economic and environmental issues (such as housing, transport, heritage and employment).

English Rural Housing Association CHIDDINGFOLD INFORMATION DAY
Thursday 27 May 3.30 - 7.30Village Hall
What is the Information Day all about ? It is an opportunity for you to look at the proposed plans for a development of eight affordable homes for local people in Chiddingfold Parish.
Local councilors, have long had concerns that young people were leaving the village because of the lack of affordable housing and concerned on the impact this could have on the future sustainability of the village, commissioned a Housing Needs Survey in 2005 to obtain a clearer picture of the housing need in the village.
The 2005 survey identified 29 households, from a broad spectrum of the community, including; single people, couples and local families who were unable to access a home suitable for their needs. More recent evidence shows that the 2005 survey underestimates the need in the village. Waverley Borough Council now has over 40 applicants with a local connection to Chiddingfold waiting on their Housing Needs Register.
The Parish Council have expressed a wish to develop a local needs housing scheme for the long term benefit of the community. This proposal shows a development of eight affordable homes which would go towards assisting some of the local people in housing need. - - More

The Chiddingfold Tipteerers Reality Show! Sunday 27th December 2009
You can’t get any more 'real' than a live performance of the original and traditional Chiddingfold Tipteerer’s Play coming to a pub near you in Chiddingfold again this Xmas!
Having found an old script and account of a traditional 'Tipteerers' play, that was performed in Chiddingfold circa 1860, a few chaps got together in 2003 to resurrect the tradition. - - Here

I’ve written many pieces in our Parish magazine
about our bells; at St Mary’s Chiddingfold.
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!)

The St George's Day Play
Adedum to Story Below !
Received Thursday April 12, 2007
Having had it pointed out that Monday nights are not likely to be
well attended !
It makes most sense to perform to an audience that will be present, so we've plumped for..........
performance Sunday afternoon, 2.30pm/3pm,22nd April 2007 same venue
Happily, it is getting more difficult not to notice the significance of 23rd April!
There are parades and festivities around the county to mark our patron saints day and to celebrate our nationality and Englishness. (We seem to be catching up with the Scots, Irish and Welsh in this respect!)
Again, The Crown P.H. will host the company. Monday evening visitors
will, I hope, be quite pleased to witness the show! If all goes well,
the performance will be at around 9pm, a tune or two after this
brief theatre, to further entertain, and a pleasant evening will be had

HAPPILY HISTORIC !
Not at all unusual for an incumbent

To wish her good health prior to the birth and in celebration of the happy event, much ringing of the Church bells took place at Chiddingfold! - More
