Henfield’s BP Guild elects its new Chairman!

At our AGM Robin Wadey has stepped up from Deputy Chairman to become the Chairman for the next two years.

Just before though, outgoing chairman Eric Williams reviewed the year’s volunteering activities including fundraising through BBQ’s, hiring of Marquees & Gazebo’s Jumbles sales and so on. He received resounding thankyous from the over 33 or so members present at the AGM.

Robin, with the help of elected “officers” will steer members not just through fundraising but also in mobilising the support to organisations such as the Henfield Scouts, Henfield Guides, HART, St Peters Church, The Henfield Club, The Henfield Hall, the Haven, the National & International BP Guild, and others. Some support is also given to others and by participating in village affairs.

For those not familiar with the BP Guild, there is an active social side through-out the year, of course all paid for by members themselves of course, which include - concerts, evening dinners in and out of the village, camping, canal boating and of course meet ups to celebrate after an evening’s or day’s volunteer work.

We meet on Thursday evenings at the Guide Hut, Staples Barn and afterwards we socialise at a local hostelry such as The Henfield Club in the High Street from around 9.00pm. A Business Meeting at the Guide Hut is held on the first Thursday of the month at 8.00pm.

New members and supporters are always welcome

Christmas morning present delivery 2017

This year Christmas morning started in a light drizzle of rain but this did not dampen the enthusiasm of our Father Christmas (Phil Bennett) who was the main man again for the third time, and so with Gerald the reindeer - who has done it for so long he is growing antlers - leading the way, we left the Library car park at 8am, heading for our first present delivery drop at Barrow Hill.

We had 71 parcels to deliver in 37 drops, Father Christmas 2 (Kenneth) had 6 parcels to deliver in 3 drops but he also dispensed Christmas good cheer and a Ho, Ho, Ho to Red Oaks and Upper Mead residents and staff this was much appreciated.

Many thanks to the Christmas Day team for giving up their Christmas morning and giving a lot of children something special to remember.

The Team:

Father Christmas 1 – Phil Bennett, Reindeer – Gerald Cranford

Father Christmas 2 – Kenneth McIntosh, Reindeer – David Harvey

Elves - Andy Warren, Paul Hubner, John Rodriguez

Happy New Year to you all
