This year Lindfield Bonfire Society are running an Easter Egg colouring competition in place of their Easter Egg Hunt

We have 5 Bonfire Bears (just like the one in the photo) to be won!

Should you wish to help LBS by making a donation please see our Just Giving page.

Closing date April 30th. Winners will be contacted via FB and their Bonfire Bears will be sent by post.

This is in place of our Annual Easter Egg Hunt which has sadly but understandably had to be cancelled this year.

We wish you all a happy, peaceful and safe Easter.

Cancellation of LBS events due to Covid-19

In accordance with the latest Government advice to the public to help minimise the spread of Corona Virus / Covid-19 and help protect the most vulnerable in our community LBS has taken the decision to cancel this weekend’s Annual Dinner (21/3/2020) and also next week’s Vintage & Antiques Fair (28/3/2020).

This is not a decision that has been taken lightly, but we hope you appreciate our reason for taking this action now rather than waiting till nearer the time that these events were due to take place.

We wish you all the best and please take care of yourselves, family, friends and neighbours.

Best wishes,

The LBS Committee
