A big thank you to the 200+ visitors who attended the 2018 Art Circle exhibition over the Bank Holiday and contributed to such a marvellous event. The quality of artwork was outstanding, as ever, and over the course of the exhibition 32 paintings were sold.

Once costs had been deducted, the Art Circle kindly donated the profit from the event (£607.81) to the Village Hall towards the improvement programme.

We would also like to thank Annette and Steve for holding The Summer Party at Combe Down House on June 16th, were visitors were treated to cream teas and cheese and wine, alongside a bring and buy table, generously contributed to by members of the village. This event raised £141 – the proceeds of which will also go into the fund for the village hall extension.

For the remainer of 2018, we have the following events planned….. so far!

1st September  –  Autumn Fun Show (Christmas Card competition)

Our annual Autumn Fun Show will be held at the Village Hall on Saturday September 1st. Please click the link above for full details of the show and the categories. Good luck with your entries and we hope to see you all there.

If possible, we would also like to run an “Auction of Promises” evening before the end of the year, to raise some more funds for the village hall extension. If you know of anyone who would like to contribute a prize or donation, please email us with the details (
