Thank-you to everyone who helped at the Swap-it day on Saturday 20 October, baking and bringing cakes, and sharing the work to deal with the residue (waste is such a dirty word!) It was great to see so many things carried off to be used afresh by new owners. And after identifying items suitable for the jumble sale, and to be gifted to charity shops, the pile at the end was really quite small. I think part of the pleasure of these type of event that we run is to catch up and have a chat with friends and neighbours from around the village. Next Swap-it day will be 11 May 2013.
We collected enough in donations to cover the cost of the Hall. Also, I think nearly everyone who came must have had a piece of cake: the variety of cakes on offer was clearly irresistible.
Next Chiddgreen event is Tuesday 11 December in the Charles Watts Room 8pm – An illustrated Talk from the Surrey Hills Society about the AONB and Chiddingfold’s place in it.
The thought is to have mulled apple juice on offer with perhaps some festive biscuits? Let us know what you think, and please save the date!
