HRA hold a number of annual events aimed at bringing the community together.
We are pleased to announce our 2020 Lockdown Scarecrow Competition!
To keep us all occupied and to make our village walks and cycle rides more entertaining we thought we’d bring back our popular scarecrow competition. This year it will take place over June and July.
We invite everyone to make a scarecrow, put it up outside your house and email us your name, address and scarecrow’s name to email@example.com by 20 July and you will be entered to win the prestigious trophy! More details about how to vote etc will follow.
VE 75 celebrations
Unfortunately in the current environment we took the decision not to go ahead with our planned VE 75 celebrations. However, thanks to The Henry and The Scott Partnership we did manage to light the beacon to commemorate all those who served in WWII.
This is a taste of what we did in 2019…
Family Christmas Carols
Once again this was held in conjunction with St Peter’s Church, the Parish Council and the Henry. Edenbridge Town Band accompanied us and helped us get into the festive spirit.
Thanks to you, we also donated £88.50 to the Hospice in the Weald Charity.
A Halloween Party
Thank you to all the magnificent helpers who helped make the Halloween Party so Spooktacular this year. We had over 70 children enjoying the games, crafts, pumpkin carving, face painting and cake making.
Once again we were amazed by the fabulous entries. Please see here for the 2019 Photo Gallery of all the amazing Scarecrows.
Congratulations to all our winners:
Jane Higgs won the public vote for Free Range Egg;
Chrissie & Peter Stevens won the HRA committee prize for Velo Club Delaware; and
The Hever School Cup went to Year 2 – Mrs Draper’s class for School Crossing.
An Easter egg hunt
Children great and small were welcomed at the Church to hunt for some delicious eggs!
Our 2018 events included:
Family Christmas Carols
Held in conjunction with St Peter’s Church, the Parish Council and the Henry which had mulled wine and mince pies to help you warm up those singing voices. Edenbridge Town Band accompanied us and helped us get into the festive spirit.
Thanks to you, we also donated £100 to the Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity.
Please see here for the photo gallery.
The HRA Committee is very grateful to everyone who helped to make the party spooktacular.
Thank you to all the young witches, ghosts, mummies and many more who attended the party. We hope you all had a hauntingly good time!
Basic life saving demonstration
Thank you to Edenbridge Community First Responders who demonstrated how to use a defibrillator and perform heart resuscitation and the Heimlich manoeuvre.
Thank you also to everyone who came, the more of us who have these skills in our community the better for us all.
Well done to everyone for the amazing entries, and a special congratulations to our winners:
The Cahill family for their creative scarecrows who won the public vote; and
Jane Higgs who won the HRA Committee vote for her beautiful scarecrow welcoming us into Hever.
We enjoyed seeing all the scarecrows around the village and had many letters and comments of appreciation from residents and visitors alike.
