Please do not bring alcohol onto the Green tonight

Surrey Police will be repeating last year’s policy of removing and destroying alcohol brought onto the green by underage drinkers. This policy makes the event safer for everyone and keeps it a family-friendly, fun event for all to enjoy. Please don’t bring alcohol onto the Green.

Many thanks

Proof that not everyone on the green is a local…

“During a rainy day’s build (Oct. 19?), I stopped at Treacle’s tea house with my UK family, and chatted with 3 men on the green as they busily built an ever-higher mound – impressive!
When told I was from Canada, one of you kindly noted that I’d find this online, and deservedly claimed bragging rights that Chiddingfold’s was one of the 10 best bonfires in England.
From the Empire’s land of the maple leaf, in a sister city also called London, may I say … well done!”

Build it, build it, build it

Last week’s build was big and dry. Tomorrow, there will be rain. Turn up anyway – we’ll still be building and we would love to have you help. For those of you who are dumping material – PLEASE only dump sensible flammable materials. It seems that the village idiot was out last week and left some carpet underlay. It’s either fire resistant or probably toxic. Please don’t leave this sort of material – thanks!
