Village Events

Down Farm Development

posted May 4, 2015, 3:00 AM by Anthony Crowther

It has been brought to the attention of the Parish Council that there is to be a "Meet the Builder" session on Tuesday 5th May between 5.30 p.m. and 7.00 p.m. at Petersgate Infant School. The Parish Council understand that a letter drop was carried out to the houses within the immediate area of the proposed development, last week and the remainder of the village has not been informed, once again this includes the Parish Council who were not made aware of the event by the Developer, despite previous requests that if future events like this one are held the whole village should be kept informed as further development will effect the majority of residents daily lives and not just those in the immediate vicinity.

Clanfield Village School Crossing Improvements

Following a public exhibition at Clanfield Primary school in November 2014 the proposals for improvements to the school crossing and traffic calming have been reviewed   At their April meeting, Clanfield Parish Council requested that a further public exhibition should be held to enable villagers to be made aware of the new proposals. 

The exhibition will therefore be held in the Clanfield Junior School library on the 13th May 2015 from 3pm until 7pm where the revised scheme plans will be on display and where Hampshire County Council representatives will be available to discuss the project.

Clanfield Joggers

posted Dec 24, 2014, 8:09 AM by Anthony Crowther

Clanfield Joggers has been a part of Clanfield village for over 20 years. We started out in 1992 as part of an initiative run by East Hampshire District Council to get people in rural areas out exercising and enjoying the countryside, a remit which we’ve been fulfilling ever since. We cater for all standards, from those who want to jog around the local lanes and tracks in company, to those who want to go further and faster and perhaps compete in races. We’re known as a very friendly club – no-one is ever left to run on their own.
With the wonderful countryside of the South Downs National Park on our doorstep, why not come along and join us for one of our club runs? Please don’t think that running clubs are only for ‘serious’ runners – we’re a sociable bunch of people who just enjoy the fresh air and countryside. Our members participate in the local Park Runs at Havant and QE Park, which is a great way to get involved in the local running community.
In September we’re joining forces with Tiffany Eneas of MSE Fitness (www.msefitness.net ) in an initiative to get new people into running. If you’ve ever thought you’d like to start running but weren’t sure how, or wanted some encouragement and company, then this could be just the thing for you. Tiffany is a fully-qualified running coach and fitness instructor and has extensive experience in getting people into running in a safe and friendly environment. Once you’ve completed Tiffany’s course you will have taken the first steps to running and feel confident to join in with Clanfield Joggers.
Clanfield Joggers meet at Peel Park, Chalton Lane in Clanfield on Wednesday evenings at 6.30 p.m. and Sunday mornings at 9.00 a.m. More details at www.clanfieldjoggers.co.uk or contact Ken Finlay on 07711228412 or emailken@1ken.co.uk
Tiffany’s beginners’ course starts on Sunday 22nd September from 8.00 to 9:00 a.m. and runs for 6 weeks. After each training session you’ll meet up with the Clanfield Joggers’ community as they gather at Peel Park for their regular Sunday morning run. You can contact Tiffany via her website or on her emailtiffany@msefitness.net or give her a call on 07967257553 if you have any questions.
The cost of the 6 week course is £12.00 in advance, included in this fee is membership to Clanfield Joggers until the end of March 2014. This membership entitles you to insurance while running with Clanfield Joggers and discounts at a number of local running shops.

I am delighted to be able to report that the total amount collected in the Clanfield area during the 2013 Poppy Appeal was £2,625.33.  The Royal British Legion is most appreciative since, without the help of all those who make donations, they would be unable to continue their vital welfare and benevolent work in support of service personnel and their families.  We are always looking for additional volunteer house-to-house collectors and if anyone wishes to assist during the 2014 Appeal, please let me know.

Clanfield Parish Council information signage for Peel Park - unfortunately the skate ramp sign, asking for protective clothing to be worn,  was pulled down as soon as it was installed.

Clanfield Carols 2014

posted Dec 24, 2014, 4:54 AM by Anthony Crowther   [ updated Dec 24, 2014, 4:56 AM ]

Unfortunately this year there will not be a “Carols around the Pond” event which for the past 10 years has been arranged and hosted by Clanfield Parish Council. The event does take time and effort to arrange and sadly, this year there has been no volunteers to take on the planning of the event, which usually starts in September, for Christmas 2014.

It is hoped that the event can be held in 2015, but volunteers are required to take on the arrangements, - the task is time consuming and requires detailed co-operation with the other organisations involved - the Parish Council would, as always, support the event they pay for the insurance, lights and mince pies etc….

If anyone does have the time and energy to lead on the event for “Carols around the Pond 2015” please do come forward and make contact with Diane Duffy the Parish Clerk in the first instance email: clanfieldpc@virginmedia.com or telephone 02392 596353

Community Archaeology

posted Dec 24, 2014, 4:53 AM by Anthony Crowther

I am Kimberly Briscoe, Community Archaeologist working on the Secrets of the High Woods project for the South Downs National Park.
I am writing to invite members of your local community to join an exciting three year community project, joint funded by the South Downs National Park and HLF, to explore the historical landscape of the High Woods area between the A3 and the A272 including parts in or near your parish. (Project boundary shown below) 
I wondered if the project might be of interest and if so, if it would be possible to promote our upcoming event amongst your community via the Parish noticeboard and possibly the local Newsletter?
A quick background to the project, earlier this year, an aerial laser scanning survey, commonly known as lidar survey was undertaken over a large area of wooded estate land known as the High Woods. Aerial laser scanning survey allows archaeologists to ‘see through’ dense tree cover, revealing the archaeology of the forest floor beneath. The process has allowed thousands of new and unrecorded archaeological features to be revealed, across the project area.
Throughout this autumn we’re recruiting volunteers to help us research, understand and record this fascinating landscape through a combination of, archaeological field survey, archival research and oral history collection! Whether you enjoy romping around in the forest, researching your local history through public and private archives or recording oral histories and local memories is more your thing, anyone can get involved and help us to better understand our heritage.
To introduce the project we’re inviting people to anOpen Day on the 8th November in the South Downs Centre Hall, Midhurst to find more about the project and how they might like to get involved. This event will provide an opportunity to speak to the team, to find out more information about the project and have the opportunity to chat with current volunteers.  If you think your community might be interested, would it be possible for the project to prepare a short piece about the event in your newsletter and include the attached poster on your notice board?
Attached is a flyer for the Open Day, a leaflet and postcard to provide more information about the project.
Also, visit us here at:www.southdowns.gov.uk/highwoods
All the best,
Kimberly Briscoe
Community Archaeology Assistant

At a Parish Council Meeting held on the 2nd September a request was made for a village volunteer to help organise this year’s “Carols Around the Village Pond” event.
Traditionally this well attended event, now in its tenth year, is held on a Friday evening in the approach to Christmas. It was originally started by the Clanfield Parish Council as a thank you to village volunteers for re-engineering the ancient village pond and due to its popularity has continued ever since. 
The Parish Council have expressed a willingness to continue to provide support for an event organised on similar lines to the past, but wish to stress that that the task is time consuming and requires detailed co-operation with the other organisations involved.
Anyone wishing to help is asked to contact the Parish Clerk Diane Duffy on 02392 506353 or e.mail  clanfieldpc@virginmedia.com

Hyden WI Raise £1000 for Clanfield Scout Group - June 2010

posted Dec 24, 2014, 12:59 AM by Anthony Crowther

Over the past year Hyden WI members have held a variety of events, including coffee mornings, cake stalls and a strawberry cream tea, to raise funds towards the rebuilding of the Clanfield Scouts Group Hall, their original hall having been destroyed in an arson attack.  Our efforts raised a total of £1000 and at our meeting on 17th May 2010 a cheque was presented to Doris Barden, co-ordinator of fundraising for the rebuilding project, and Jane Hoon from the Clanfield Scouts Group.

The attached photograph shows Left to Right – Dorid Barden, Jean Harwood – President of Hyden WI, Jane Hoon, and Marie Southgate – Treasurer of Hyden WI.
