Chipperfield In 2014

1st of December 2014

We have put in an extra four pages this month to include pictures of some of the events we might have missed during the year because of shortage of space. For such a small village, Chipperfield is a very busy community. The Diary on the back page shows just how many clubs, classes and societies meet on a weekly basis. Then there are the regular groups from the three churches which include children’s activities. There are other events such as the Hollyberry Fair, Horticultural Shows and talks, charity Christmas card sales, and plays and pantos produced by the Chipperfield Theatre Group. Chipperfield is fortunate in having a strong choral tradition with St Paul’s Church Choir and organ master, and Chipperfield Choral Society producing a number of exceptional performances. There are strong sports teams for all ages: tennis, football, cricket and bowls. There is now an annual fantastic firework display in November attended by thousands. All these events help to keep the village halls and church halls, including St Paul’s Parish Room, alive.

Thank you to all our contributors without whom there would not be a Chipperfield News.

We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year.
All the team at Chipperfield News
