Hadlow Down Festival 2017 is in full swing!
The Hadlow Down Village Fayre on 17th June was a fantastic day with lots of stalls and activities. We believe over a thousand people attended, and it was an ideal occasion to launch our Festival. 
The Festival goes through to 17th September and if you have a hard copy of the Festival booklet, please keep it handy so you can refer to it over the summer period. The community has come together to provide a wide range of events/activities for all ages. Many of the events are free and you can just turn up, others you will need to book your place, so please check it out and book as soon as you can, as there will be a high demand for places. 
For dates, times and booking information, please refer to your Festival booklet. If you would like a copy, free copies will be available at the New Inn, Main Road, Hadlow Down, TN22 4HJ, which is open weekdays from 6pm and from midday at the weekend.
Alternatively, you can download our Festival booklet at www.hadlowdown.com and keep up-to-date on our Facebook page, which will give any revised event information. 
We would love to hear from you if you have attended an event, and you can send us your feedback by commenting on our Facebook page or downloading a very short survey on the website. We hope you enjoy the Festival and look forward to seeing you at one or more of the events.

'Beating the Bounds'
The first stage will start at 10am and thereafter approx every hour. Starting point – St. Mark’s Parish Church. The walk is an old tradition in which, historically the Rector of the Parish walked the parish boundary to bless the crops in early summer to ensure growth during the summer period. Rev. John Barker will complete the entire walk and asks that groups of people join him at various points along the way. The walk will be divided into manageable “chunks” approx. 2 - 3 miles, so children can join in as well. Free tea, coffee and light snacks available at the church throughout the day. Groups of people will be transported from the church to various points around the parish boundary and picked up again later on the route and returned to the church. Parking in School Lane. Parts of the boundary walk are on country lanes so wheelchair accessible. Walkers must be able to walk 2 miles. For safety reasons – groups will be 6 – 8 people per section of the walk. To book a place and for more information, contact Peter Smyth: smyth594@gmail.com
