Felbridge Country Show proposed to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Sat 16thJune 2012

To celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee next year a small group have got together, with Felbridge Parish Council backing, to organise a Felbridge Country Show  This will be instead of the usual Felbridge Fair and is hoped to be more like a mini South of England Show encompassing as many Felbridge clubs, associations, businesses, schools and people as possible.  It is early days but we would like as many people as possible to join our working party to organise this event.  They are asking all the clubs, associations etc to ask if they would like to promote themselves at the event and if they would like to join the working party.  Also, they would welcome any Felbridge resident who feels they can help or offer their expertise. They are aiming to have a Food Marquee, Arts and Crafts Marquee and a Horticultural Marquee, with competitions in various categories, demonstrations and private stall holders.  Other attractions that have so far been suggested are: a Skittles Competition, pony rides, miniature train rides, fancy dress competition, Mut (dog) Show, beer tent and family barbeque and disco in the evening. Ideally they would also like to have demonstrations provided by some of the Felbridge clubs etc, dancing by the Roshe Performing Arts School, Felbridge School, the Line Dancers and Old Time Dancers (only Roshe and the School have been contacted so far and they have both agreed), or perhaps a drill or marching demo from the Army Cadets, keep fit/aerobics. They are hoping to use the Village Hall and grounds, the School grounds and Felbridge Common under the chestnuts trees from the Village Hall up to the A264 as this could involve the Village Shop and Rags. It is early days yet and these are just a few ideas, nothing has been finalised, except that YOU  ARE  NEEDED- volunteers to help see this event to fruition. If any one would like to get involved or would like more information please  contact Stephonie Clarke either by e-mail, jerry@felbridge.org.uk, Facebook or phone 01342 715830.
