Redlingfield Family Fun, Buffet and Race Night 9th April at Horham Community Centre: You may have read in the latest Athelington, Horham and Redlingfield News that we are holding another fundraising evening on 9th April at Horham Community Centre, which will include a “Race Night”.  Last year’s event was well attended and very successful – raising over £800 for the village.

This year’s event will start at 7pm. There will be a table buffet and the Race Night event is provided by On Course Race Nights – who did an excellent job for us last year. It’s going to be a lot of fun – so, if you can, please do come along.  You might even win some money! Tickets are £5 each and accompanied children under 16 are free. We are only printing 80 tickets – so book yours early to avoid disappointment!

The Buffet & Race Night is being organised on behalf of the village by the Village Committee – a group of some 16 volunteers who raise funds for the village. All the money we raise will go towards maintaining and improving our village facilities, which include expanding our Doorstep Green and creating vehicular access to it and the church. We are also fundraising to repair and improve our 11th century village church so that it can host more village events.

As a parish, we do not raise a local rate, instead we hold fundraising events such as this to gain the income we need to look after the village and its facilities. It’s an unusual way of doing things – only a handful of parishes in Suffolk don’t raise a rate.

If you would like tickets you can contact me, Joyce Saunders or any of the members of the Village Committee.  (Andrew Abbott, Graham Abbott, Katie Abbott, Mike Ager, Jeanette Brierley, Susan Chapman, Allan Chapman, Will Edwards, Lesley Freitas, Tony Freitas, Chris Gibbons, Pat Kelly, Russell Kerry, Jacqueline Love, Manday Miller and Janet Norman-Philips).
