We've already taken part in the 'Clean for the Queen' event that saw volunteers tidying up the village in preparation for the Queen's birthday. We hope to organise another clean-up day before the Queen's official birthday in June.
On Thurs 21 April at 10am you will be able to listen to the Bell Ringers’ quarter peal. The Parish Council and Sports Association are also holding a bonfire and barbecue on the Sports Field from 6.30pm. There is a national lighting of beacons/bonfires taking place across the country that evening at 8pm and we are looking forward to being a part of the celebrations. Please bring along your Rounders and Croquet sets for an evening of good old fashioned village fun! Cobham Primary School's PTA are organising a barbecue so you will be well fed too!
