The Village Association puts on several events in the course of the year.
Due to COVID-19, no events will be held until further notice.
The following are some of the events currently organised:
Every Wednesday 10am-Noon in the Women's Institute Hall. A chance to get to know other village residents over biscuits and tea or coffee. Come and join in a game of table-tennis.
There will be no Feast Day this year due to government guidance during the COVID-19 lockdown.
This is held each year on November 5th on the Playing Fields.
This competition has been held in September since 2010 in alternate years. Residents are invited to create a themed sculpture in their garden. Residents and visitors are invited to view the sculptures and vote on them.
See the entries for 2016 here. The 2018 competition was held on the weekend of 15th/16th September 2018, with the theme of your own choice as there is so much to choose from. This is the last one that will be held. The wnning entry was Sue Gill with 100th Anniversary of the first perfomance of Holst's Planet Suite. 2nd place was WI with the Centenary of the End of the 1st World War. 3rd place was Jean Dawes with 50 year Anniversary of the End of Steam Travel in the UK. This will be the last competition to be held.
The committee underwent a restructuring 2013/2014 to bring Ulgham Meadows and the Playing Field Management committees under the remit of the Village Association and to include representatives from the Women's Institute and the Cricket Club. The reason for this was to avoid duplication of effort and to improve communication channels between the groups active in the village.
The current committee members are:
Chair: Helen Dunn
Treasurer: Tony Warlow
Secretary: Barbara Chandler
Representative for Ulgham Meadows and Wood (LNR) : John Carpenter
Representatives of the Parish Council: George Brown, Jim Scott, Helen Shaw and Lesley Newman
Representatives of the Women's Institue: Pauline Martin
Representatives of the Church: Pamela Lamb
Representatives of the Cricket Club: Keith Lowes and/or Colin Tait
