10 Mar 2019 - Title and Deed - Play by Will Eno

A Play at Betchworth Village Hall at 7 pm on Sunday 10th March

‘Title and Deed’ –  Play by Will Eno, performed by the powerful Icelandic performer Pall Paulson.

This is a haunting, funny, quietly moving examination of what it is to search for “home” that singular place in the world where we can feel complete. Pall Paulson, a slightly foreign powerful story teller gathers us together to sort through his surprising experiences of that search and shares his story, comparing the odd traditions of his country of birth with the realities of life here.

Farnham Maltings and Reigate Rotary Club  bring you this professional production of beautifully, poetic story telling. Sponsored by the Arts Council.

Tickets £12.50 a bar with free nibbles.

Tickets available from Rotarian Iain Laurenson, Betchworth  Post Office and Buckland Village Stores.

Because of adult language entry to children is restricted to those aged 14+.

25 Mar 2019 - Buckland Annual Parish Meeting

Buckland’s 2019 Annual Parish Meeting will be held on Monday 25th March, at 7.30pm in the Reading Room.

The Annual Parish Meeting provides an opportunity for your Parish Council to report on its activities during the year and for residents to ask questions, provide feedback and help influence future priorities.

Our guest speaker, Rosie Jordan will introduce the work of Surrey Search & Rescue – “a professional but unpaid team of highly trained men and women who are on call to assist Surrey Police 24 hours a day throughout the year to search for, find, treat and rescue high risk, vulnerable missing people.”

The evening will include a short refreshment break, providing an opportunity to say hello to anyone you have not met before and to enjoy a “catch up” with local residents you already know.

Please keep the evening free – we shall look forward to welcoming you to the meeting.

08 Sep 2019 - Buckland Pond Clearance and Village Tidy

Please keep Sunday 8th September 2019 free to turn out and participate in the annual pond clearance and village tidy.

Please meet us by the Pond in time for a short safety briefing at 10am from Simon Elson, a Reigate Area Conservation Volunteer who leads our activities for the Village Pond and Green.

If you are keen to help in the pond, bring waders (if you can), a spade, a bucket (or plastic trug) and a wheelbarrow.

There will be tasks suitable for volunteers who would prefer to help with tasks on dry land, so come along armed with your favourite gardening gloves and hand tools to help.

If you do not feel you can make it to the pond on the 8th but are willing to volunteer to help to undertake other tasks on our “to do list” please let us know.
