   CHIDDINGFOLD BONFIRE    29 October, 2019

The epic extravaganza that is the Chiddingfold Bonfire is taking place on 2nd November 2019 on the Village Green.

The Bonfire's long history and unrivalled reputation means another fantastic night is promised.  Come along and dig deep when the collection buckets come round as the money raised is given to elderly villagers and local worthy causes.
