Supporting our local community

With money raised from the Village Show we are able to help a range of important community ventures.

Our committee selects a number of charities and support groups each year to whom we donate part of the funds raised from the Village Show. Recent donations were made to:

 

The West Chiltington Phone Box defibrillator - £1,500

 

Pulborough and District Community Care - £500

 

Village School STEM project - £1,000

A group of parents at the school have come together to ignite the children’s interest in science! A number of small projects are underway and one is the STEM (Science, Engineering and Maths) box challenge!

The idea is that a mini science, technology, engineering or maths experiment will be contained in a takeaway – do at home- kit for parents to enjoy with their children. Each shoe box will contain one experiment worksheet, the key materials, a feedback sheet and some thought provoking questions to inspire all our budding scientists and engineers!  Parents will be able to take the box home, do the experiment, bring it back and swap it for another.

The money will be used to fill the boxes with food colouring bottles, kitchen roll pieces, plastic cups, cotton reels, elastic bands, paperclips…whatever is needed for the experiment.
