Parish Events

Annual Church & Village Fete

A highlight of the year is the annual Church and Village Fete held in July on the Buckhurst Estate Cricket Ground up the private drive beyond the Dorset Arms Pub.

The children from St Michael's Primary School dance around the maypole and the community comes together to enjoy traditional stalls, cream teas and a dog show, plus plenty of other treats in store.

On 10th July 2021, a large number of people braved the weather to make the Fete a happy and successful occasion. 

NEXT YEAR: Saturday, 9th July 2022

Annual Churchyard Clean Up

In November we come together as a community to tidy up the churchyard.  Hard work is rewarded with hot soup and sausage rolls.
