Cheriton Village has a unique opportunity to purchase the freehold of the Village Hall from the Church Diocese, securing its future at the heart of the community. Cheriton Village Hall Charitable Trust needs to raise £80,000 by December 2018 to meet the purchase price, plus a bit more for associated costs. Once the purchase is complete, there will be an opportunity to make structural changes, improve the layout and bring the facilities up to date, meeting current standards and expectations, after all the Village Hall was built in 1911!
Cheriton Village Hall is a vital, much-used, facility, run by a small Committee of volunteers. Fundraising events are an important part of village life. One such event is a unique opportunity to celebrate the Last Night of the Proms streamed LIVE from the Royal Albert Hall, on the big screen, on 9 September. A new campsite, Holden Farm Camping, in Cheriton is hosting the event in a field in the South Downs National Park. The concept was born from an idea of community -bring a picnic, dress in red, white and blue, bring friends and family together and enjoy a perfect evening out celebrating this iconic British event, deep in the beautiful Hampshire countryside. Organisers envision a great outdoors singalong evening with people of all ages coming together.
Admission is £20 per person, including a free drink and free parking, with a short walk (14 and under go free). Premier parking options are also available at £20 per car. Gates open at 6.30pm with a full licensed bar and British bar snacks from Boozy Bakers and a coffee bar from Four Fillies amongst others.
