The outline organisation of the event is underway.

If you feel you can open your garden or would like advice as to what is involved please call me.  All gardens large or small are always of interest.

The outstanding need now is for volunteers to come forward to undertake specific tasks, notably teas in the village hall, or just a couple of hours help on either day.  This is an important revenue raiser and as such if you help or can recruit anyone else please let me know.  In addition Stewards for the gardens will be required, car park attendants, ticket sellers, additional publicity, cake makers, First Aiders etc.  All help is gratefully received.

If you are involved in an organisation that could benefit from additional funding and could spare some man-hours for the event, then please contact me with early bids.

If you have any queries or suggestions regarding the Open Gardens 2013, please contact either Mandi Sowik or Flaire Kitching.

Fireworks 2012 - Thanks and Feedback

A big thank you to everyone who attended our annual Bonfire and Fireworks event on the 3rd of November. We hope you enjoyed the evening.

We are interested in your feedback - both the good and the bad points - please provide your feedback and suggestions here. You may also use this page to enquire about lost property - we have a number of children's gloves this year.

Did you know that the Bonfire and Fireworks event is a self-funded, non-profit event where the takings go only to next years event ? This year, due to the increased attendance last year meant that we had to spend a lot more time and money licensing an event of that size.

We would also like to say a big thank you to the Chawton Bonfire and Fireworks team for another great evening. Why not come along next year and help make the Bonfire or to help with the clean-up.

 

Fireworks 2012

Chawton is once again holding its popular bonfire and fireworks event on Saturday 3rd of November.

The event is held at Chawton Cricket club, behind the main recreational ground. Access and viewing is via the recreational ground opposite the school, or from the village car park. We open at 6:00, the bonfire will be lit at 6:30 with the fireworks following once the bonfire is going well and people have stopped arriving.

The event will feature :

  • The Bonfire
  • Free sparkers for children
  • Glow-bands for children
  • Hot and cold drinks (tea, coffee, soft drinks, beer)
  • Hot food - hot dogs & soup
  • The fireworks
  • First Aid with St Johns Ambulance

We will have plenty of people serving food and drinks this year, plus we've provide more time to get your food and drink before the main event.

We hope you enjoy our fireworks night and would like to stress that the event is funded solely by donations on the day, so please give generously so that we can continue to run this event in future years. We recommend a donation of £5-£10 per adult (accompanied children free) - but you are very welcome to donate more. The more you give, the bigger the spectacle we can provide next year.

Free parking is provided in the village car park, on-street and in the dead end past the school. Please do not park in the pub car park unless you are planning to eat there. As parking is limited in the village, please consider walking or car sharing where possible. Please park considerately and do not block the main road as we need to maintain emergency vehicle access.

Pedestrian access is either via the foot bridge near the car park or from the entrance opposite the village school.

If you wish to bring your own sparklers, these must be lit in the designated area - both for safety reasons for others and to help minimise the clear up the following day.

If you have materials for the bonfire, please take these to "Simons strip" (by the stream)

We are building the bonfire during the morning from about 9:30am and our annual clear-up takes place from 9:00 on the Sunday morning, all are welcome to come along and help. Its a great way to meet local people !
