Lindfield Village Day is a week Saturday (1st June) and we need all of you dressed as pirates, (or in stripes if you don’t like dressing up!) to join in the procession
We’ll be meeting at 12.45pm at the entrance to The Welkin. Anyone wanting to help run the bric a brac, books stall, china smash and ‘Angry Birds’ game are also welcome. There will be someone on the Common from 9am.
We should also hope to have some special guests, so don’t forget your camera!

Then look no further than Lindfield Bonfire Society’s Vintage Coffee Morning at the King Edwarad Hall on Saturday 27th April 2013 from 9.30 to 12.00, where all these things will be on sale.
We look forward to seeing you there!
It may only be January, but already we are planning ahead for what will happen this year. I can confirm that we at Lindfield Bonfire Society intend to hold our Bonfire Event this year on November 5th (I’m sure that’s no surprise to you). To allow us to do this we must continue fundraising throughout the year.
First on the list will be our 2014 Lindfield Village Calendar. Are you or your business able to sponsor a month, put forward a photograph for inclusion or wish to stock the calendar? If so, please get in touch and let us know. Our deadline for sponsorship and artwork is the 1st March 2013, if you wish to get involved now is the time to let us know.
We are also planning a number of other fund raising events in the Village in the coming months as well as hopefully being involved in the Lindfield Arts Festival and Village Day, so please keep an eye on our website for updates on what is happening.
Don’t forget that without your support we cannot make Bonfire Night happen, so please help us by joining our Society and support our fundraising activities!
Its late night Christmas shopping in Lindfield this coming Tuesday 4th December. We will have our tombola running and also our ‘Angry Birds’ throwing game, both of which we will be in the High Street outside the Stand Up Inn.
Also, the rumour mill has it, that we may be having a special guest helping out that night!
The road will close at 5.30pm and activities in the High Street commence from 6pm and end at 9pm. Please come along and support late night shopping in Lindfield.
In the news, This months Lindfield Life has run an article about the decision to cancel our 2012 bonfire and firework display, and the consequences for the Society. Our thanks go to Lindfield Life for running this artical and for their continued support of the Society.
