Village Events of Interest
I recently received the following information about an event in Forest Row which includes a re-run of the story of the "Farmer Moving South" - from Yorkshire to Perryhill by rail in the winter! The programme is self explanatory.
Unfortunately the writer of the column below is unable to continue but it is hoped that someone can be found to re-start it soon. In the meantime I am leaving the following in place to provide an idea of the activities that go towards an enthusiastic and busy village. Many of the societies and clubs have their own websites such as this one and the Parish Council website carries a list of these. If there is anyone local who is interested in taking on the Hartfield Community Column please make contact through the 'contact' button and I will put you in touch with the relevant people.
The Hartfield Community Column is published regularly in the East Grinstead Courier.
The current (last) one is dated 21st June 2016
In case you do not see the Courier I repeat it here:
