Touch Rugby - starting May 8th on the Charfield Playing Fields!

Touch Rugby is a fantastic sport for keeping fit and allows men & women of all abilities to take to the field together.

You don't have to have had any rugby experience at all to play. It's also great fun!

We play on a Monday night from 6:30pm until 7:30pm, at the Charfield Playing Fields behind the Village Hall.

Please text 07970853871 if you're interested and we'll put you on the list for session updates.

Charfield Memorial Hall and Playing Fields

Village Hall Annual General Meeting

MONDAY 15th May, 7:30pm, Main Hall.

Please come along to our AGM and join our committee!

The Hall and Playing Fields is run by a voluntary committee on behalf of the parish of Charfield. Without this committee the hall would not be able to function as it does now, and would have to CLOSE. We have achieved a lot in the past few years, however, are lacking volunteers to help move the work along.

We would love for you to pop in and see what we do, let us know how you would like to see the hall and playing fields improve, or join us by volunteering and becoming a trustee or member.

Charfield Community Fete 2017 - Attention Stall Holders

Charfield Community Fete 2017 - Attention Stall Holders

Buy a cool T-shirt and raise funds to fight cancer!

Liane Cope is raising money to help 3 cancer charities: Breast Cancer Care, Ovarian Cancer Action and Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust.

The design 'cats' was drawn by my talented daughter whilst I was going through cancer treatment and it cheered me up enormously. Now here's my chance to share it with you. She has kindly drawn a 'dogs' design recently for those of you that love dogs.

A local printing company are kindly printing the T-shirts at cost, so for every one sold £9 will go straight to the charities."

CHADRA - Charfield Newsletter

CHADRA's New Constitution

Following the EGM held on 15 November 2016 it was agreed that the Charfield and District Residents Association (CHADRA) would evolve into the Charfield Association and a new Constitution was adopted. As you may have read in the January edition of the Newsletter, the focus of the Committee will be the publication of the quarterly Newsletter, which will still be referred to as the CHADRA.

Copies of the minutes of the EGM and the new Constitution can be found here where you can also find the Newsletter archive going back to 1975 as well as the Editorial Guidelines and email addresses for Committee members - so if you feel you have an article to contribute or would like to join us please do get in touch. We are always delighted to have newsletter articles from new contributors!
