Wow! What a wonderful response! We raised £817.00 by collecting and recycling Christmas trees from Henfield and the surrounding villages. Thanks everybody!
A truly huge vote of thanks to Adam Butler of Liquid Amber Tree Surgery – www.liquidambertreesurgery.co.uk. Thanks also to Henfield tradesman Tony Westwood and Andy Warren, a Director of Downs Southern Ltd – http://www.downssouthern.co.uk/ without whom we could never have collected the trees. Then, once again a wonderful attendance by Henfield B-P Guild members at the Scout Field to feed 160 trees into the chipper – http://henfieldbpguild.btck.co.uk/. An amazing response and show of support from everyone, villagers, local businesses and Guildsmen alike…. Thank you all!
The cables from the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm pass through Henfield and we’ve applied for a grant from Rampion’s Community Fund.
By donating another £5,000 to the Appeal fund Henfield Baden-Powell Guild have pushed the fund closer to the target figure required to begin construction. We are very grateful for the wonderful support freely given by the Henfield B-P Guild. Visit their website at http://henfieldbpguild.btck.co.uk/
The Building Appeal fund now stands at over £94,000 with an additional £20,000 worth of electrical and fire safety work pledged by Allsaved UK Ltd, visit their website at https://allsaveduk.com/

The organisers of “Proms on the Green” at Red Oaks in June donated £100 from the event to the HSCC Building Appeal. We are forever amazed at the strong support and kind generosity that the Appeal receives from the people of Henfield.
A surprise donor seeking shelter from the rain visited the HSCC stand at Henfield Summer Fair on Saturday and promptly wrote a cheque for £750. This man’s kindness ensured that all the preparation work was worthwhile and that the afternoon was anything but a washout in spite of the atrocious weather.
The magnificent total of £1,030 was raised at “Cake and a Cuppa” on The Green at South View Terrace during the Festival of Gardens and Arts weekend in June. Visitors enjoyed homemade cakes with their cuppa while listening to either jazz quartet “Four” or country music duo “The Minogues”, sitting in the sunshine and looking out at the beautiful South Downs. Paradise on earth!
A huge thank you to everyone who participated during the weekend, either by selling teas and cakes, washing up, baking cakes, loaning equipment, buying craftwork, playing the music or simply visiting and buying some amazing cakes. Thanks also to St Peter’s Church, Henfield for the loan of their display boards. Without the help and support of you all, the weekend would not have been such a resounding success.
