A Note from our Chariman
The Good News
2016 is the 50th Anniversary of Chailey Bonfire Society and we hope you can come along on the 12th November for a special celebration. The Procession will start from Chailey School around 6pm and call at The Horns Lodge, the War Memorial for the Laying of Wreaths then on to The Five Bells before returning to the Bonfire Site, Opposite Markstakes Lane, for what we hope will be our best display ever. Please do try and come if you can.
Also, please note that the AGM will be held at the Chailey Reading Room on the 31st August starting at 8pm.
The Christmas Party for the Older Residents will be held on Saturday 3rd December at the Village Hall.
The not so good, in fact really Bad News
Regrettably our organising committee continues to diminish and following this year’s Bonfire celebrations and the Christmas Party most of the Committee are standing down which will make it impossible to continue.
I’ve never been one to give in but if Bonfire in Chailey is to continue we need a completely fresh start and I’m prepared to approach this with a blank canvas just as long as we maintain the basic principles set by our Founders in 1966 with a safe evening and display focused for Children.
All roles need replacing; Secretary, Treasurer, Fund Raisers and of course those that plan, build and deliver the Display.. if you are prepared to do something please email us by clicking here.
The hard fact is that without new help there will be no Bonfire Celebrations in Chailey in 2017.
The decision to continue, or not, is in your hands.
