Mulled wine, mince pies, our traditional raffle, and an excellent turnout. Paul Walmsley made off with the star raffle prize, the cake, and your correspondent was so overcome with emotion that he didn't notice who won the champagne. Thanks to everyone who has supported the website through the year.

You are cordially invited

email June 1st - Hi Stephen,
Have to say you do a tremendous job with this website, One person looking to move into our area could not believe the information and what went on in our parish! With my time being dominated by the Village cricket team and of course Steve Clark's remarkable write ups life could not be better! Please publish this on the website because we have something very unique and it is thanks to you.
Kind Regards Carol Haskett

Dear Carol,
Thanks for your e mail and encouragement which I appreciate.

March 18th,
Annual General Meeting of the Website Association
Crowds flocked to the Barleycorn ....... in our dreams. The Chairman reported a successful year, and took the opportunity to remind us all that Hambrook won the Chiidbroke Cup Cricket match... The Secretary ensured all the formalities were dealt with before anybody had the opportunity to raise a 'point of order'. The Treasurer impressively demonstrated that less is more, except when it comes to cash. The webmaster presented some pretty dodgy looking statistics using impressive graphs as though he had some idea of what they all meant, but quickly resorted to cheap diversionary tactics. The Chairman concluded with an appeal to all residents to use the website and get involved with website sponsored activities. Food and drink was consumed, and a sociable time was had by all.
March 18th - Barleycorn 8pm

For one night only!
Annual General Meeting of the Website Association

Bored with your humdrum existence? We'll help you put it all in perspective. Come to your community website AGM !

Come along and irritate the Chairman with your 'points of order' or baffle him with your references to 'the rule book', or floor him by quoting verbatim from the minutes of the meeting before last .....

  ...... be dazzled by our Secretary, who is not just a pretty face....

  ....... quiz the Treasurer as to why she invested the website beer money on the Icelandic Pickled Herring Futures Exchange. (and what she plans to do with all that pickled herring....)

All supporters and wellwishers welcome.... please, please, please come.
Best to turn up promptly. You might get elected to the committee in your absence.

Health and Safety Warning:
It's a pub. There will be alcohol on the premises, and its rumoured, pork scratchings.
Wednesday March 18th

Chiidbroke Trophy Cricket Shock Result -
See the photos

The Chidham v Hambrook match took place at West Ashling on Sunday afternoon. It was a perfect occasion, apart from the result. Hambrook were deserved winners on the day and have the honour of holding the trophy for the next 12 months.
Hopefully they will get it repaired before they have to hand it back.

Sun 14th Sept
Rain stopped play - Chidbrook Cup falls foul of the weather.
The annual village cricket match to be played on Sunday 7th has had to be postponed. Following a pitch inspection today and lengthy consultation with the Met. office, Steve Clark and the West Ashling groundsman reluctantly have decided to postpone the event by one week.
The two captains Robin Yeld and Gareth Haskett have been informed, and will be contacting the players as soon as possible to reschedule for 1.30 Sunday the 14th at West Ashling. If you are unavailable to play please advise asap to allow a replacement time to get match fit - both captains would like to keep the same times if possible. Mr. Yeld said "Well at least it'll give me an extra week to fix the trophy", and Mr. Haskett hoped "..the extensive training we have put in this year doesn't make us peak too soon". Steve Clark was quoted as saying "It's going to be dry, but only in between the downpours"! Hope to see you all there.

Nutbourne Station Centenary Fun Day (photos)

The whole event was a great success as a result of the tremendous support from across the community, and funds were raised for several village organisations that participated in the Event.

The overall income, before deduction of costs, was £1345

Costs were defrayed by generous donations and help and backing from businesses, individuals and the Parish Council. In particular, special thanks to Marshalls plc who gave us such magnificent support.

Some of the takings were directly related to particular organisations, but the raffle, beer tent, Chidham WI tent and Bouncy Castle were considered as common events and the proceeds shared out equally to the School (PTFA and School funds), the Church (Youth Group and Sunday Club), the Chidham WI, and the Chidham and Hambrook Website association.

Overall net funds raised were

School (PTFA and School) £ 497
Church (Youth Group and Sunday Club) £ 171
C and H Website Association £ 282
Chidham WI £ 112

Total £1063

Thanks to everyone who came, or supported the event, and to all those who worked so hard to make it a success.
