Village BBQ – Saturday 13th July – Tickets Now On Sale!!!!

Just to remind you that tickets for the village BBQ, which is taking place at the Memorial Hall on Saturday 13th July are on sale now! 
Ticket prices remain unchanged – £10 for adults and £5 for children. There will be a vegetarian option available but please can you let us know when you buy your tickets that this is the option you would like. 
Please invite your friends and family as they will be most welcome to attend. 
“Marco Pierre White” and “Gordon Ramsey” will be back to head the cooking team so you are guaranteed to be in for a real treat!
Please phone either me on 07398 714 959 (or 381 300) or Ray on 381613 to reserve your tickets before the 1st July as we need to know numbers for ordering the meat.
Lastly, as well as eating and dancing, we will be holding the usual event raffle so if you are able to donate a prize, please let me know and I will come and collect it from you or if you are feeling particularly kind perhaps you can drop it off to me. 🙂
Now all we need is a lovely sunny day.
Hope to see you there.
Love and best wishes

Ellisfield Memorial Hall – Committee Members Needed!

We currently have two members who are standing down from the Memorial Hall Committee at the AGM planned for Tuesday 14 May 2019.  These members have contributed vastly to the running of the hall over a number of years and for that we are extremely grateful.

So it’s time to look for some new committee members.  The tasks are not particularly onerous and we only meet 3 or 4 times a year.  We want to work as a team so that no one member has too much to do.  The current committee members are: Bernard Cazenove, Susie Deane, Meg Freeman, Tracey Gilvear, Rev Stephen Mourant, Ray Reed (Chairman), Ali Swanston, Rose Taplin, Joanne Thomas and Phil Self.

Would you be willing to join the committee and help to ensure that Ellisfield continues to benefit from a hall that the whole community can enjoy?

If so please contact: Ray Reed 381613 ( or Ali Swanston 381171 (

Or alternatively come along to our AGM on 14 May to find out more.

Thank you in advance.
