The Great Chailey Bake Off 2018

The Great Chailey Bake off takes place on 24th February 2018. Chailey Horticultural Society and Chailey WI are keen to get more exhibitors. This year's event is being covered by the Mid Sussex Times who are sending a photographer, but numbers of exhibitors are currently down from last year. The organisers are very keen that this year's bake off is bigger and better than last year's and want to encourage the village community to come together to take part in and enjoy what in the past has proved to be a great event.

Sheep may Safely Graze - on Chailey Green?

Our website now includes images of the many historic postcards which are held at the Windmill Rural Life Museum. One postcard of the Reading Room with sheep & cattle is based on an 1898 painting by William Sidney Cooper, who was a well-known Kentish artist.  The Parish Council would be interested to discover where the original painting is now kept. Can any of our readers help?
