A successful Bonfire and Fireworks Night was held on 5th November 2011. The total cost was £2,965.86 and total income/donations £3,061.82 giving a small surplus of£95.96. Thank you to all of the Parish Councillors, volunteers and sponsors who assisted in making the event a real success which was enjoyed by many hundreds of people from the community. We look forward to next year's event.
CHANGING ROOMS AT STEYNE PARK
Volunteers support and help is sought for clearing the changing rooms, retiling the shower rooms and painting all walls and ceilings of the interior. It is envisaged that trade works will commence in the New Year. If you would like to help with this refurbishment project please contact the Parish Clerk. We are hoping that the project will be complete in time for the next cricket season mid April.
