An amazing effort by all the builders and the Bonfire is ready!. Don’t forget the helper’s meeting this Thursday 6th Nov. at 8pm in the Half Crown in Chiddingfold. If you’ve never helped before – don’t be shy. Please come along and spare half an hour on the evening to make the event awesome for everyone. There are special perks for helpers but you’ll have to attend the meeting to find out!
Many thanks to Forest Stores who have been keeping our fine crew of bonfire builders hydrated on Saturday mornings. Why go to Sainsbury when your local shops can keep you going? Drop in a do a week’s shopping locally for a change. You know it makes sense!
Some great photos thanks to Steve Baker.
Come on down on Saturday mornings and join in the fun. Always good to see new faces.

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!”
