Summer Fete Planning Meeting – Volunteers welcome! @ The Sugar Loaves PH in Eyhorne Street.
Jan 28 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Hollingbourne’s next Annual Summer Fete and Exemption Dog Show will be  held on Saturday 8th June 2019 on the Lance Memorial Playing Field. All are welcome to attend this meeting for the 2019 event.

Hollingbourne Parish Council is keen to widen the support for the Fete which has raised thousands of pounds for local causes over the years. Unfortunately the organisation of the Fete has become the responsibility of fewer and fewer people and the Parish Council is keen to widen the membership of the Fete Committee so that it is more inclusive of the Hollingbourne as a whole. All local organisations are invited to attend.

 

Please see below for some pictures of previous Fetes.

Candlemas Day @ Hollingbourne
Feb 2 all-day

Today is Candlemas Day which is 40 days after Christmas Day and is traditionally the end of the Christmas Season. It is celebrated as a public holiday in many parts of the world and marks the presentation of the baby Jesus at the Temple in Jerusalem. For information about Hollingbourne church services please go to Site Pages.

In North America this is also ground hog day when ground hogs first appear at the start of spring following their winter hibernation. If they cast a shadow when they appear, then winter is believed to be coming to an end.
