Lindfield’s annual Village Day is being held on Saturday 2nd June.

The day, which is a fundraiser for King Edward Hall, starts with a procession down the High Street (when the road will be closed to traffic between 12.15-1.30pm) which then enters the arena on the Common. The afternoon’s activities are formally started when the local blacksmith undertake the ‘Firing of the Anvil’ at 1.45pm. 

As well as some fun family games taking place in the arena, there will also be a fitting tribute to those fallen in WWI, carried out by members of Lindfield Bonfire Society.

With over 100 stalls on the Common, it is always a great place to bag a bargain - and a beer if you fancy it! 

For more information about the day, residents can buy a programme from High Street shops for just £1. Or see the website:
