Coronation update – save the date Sunday 7th May 2023!

Preparations for the upcoming event to mark the coronation are

progressing well and we’re happy to confirm the date here so you can make

a note in your diaries.

Celebrations at the Sherfield English playing fields will take place on

Sunday 7th May, starting with a football tournament in the morning with

BBQ and tea stands available.

Then, from 3pm cream teas will be sold, there’ll be live music, the BBQ and

bar will continue and we’re planning, amongst other exciting events, a

charity auction, tombola, face painting, coconut shy and the legendary

Sherfield English skittle alley. Looking forward very much to seeing you


We want to extend our thanks to all the local businesses and organisations

who are providing their support for this event – we’ll highlight them all on

the day and perhaps here in the newsletter also – but we would like to put

on record our thanks to Test Valley Borough Council and the Sherfield

English Parish Council who have made generous contributions.

A big vote of thanks is also due to the members of the SERP2000

Committee who have jumped in as always to plan and organise this event,

but we would love to have more volunteers – please get in touch through

the number below if you can help at all – don’t forget the more help we get

the bigger and bolder the event can be on the day!

Update from the Pavilion.

Despite a great deal of the SERP Committee’s time being spent on the

coronation event planning we’re working hard to make sure that we’re

keeping a focus on the renovation projects that are underway for the SERP

facilities and playground.

We’ve invested in better storage and outside furniture; we’re looking to

improve the lighting for our evening court users and enhanced signage and

security for the site.

Although the committee do a great job we’re always keen to find new

volunteers who would like to help. We’re a friendly bunch and we’re

committed to making the playing fields an ever more important part of the

fabric of our community and bring us all together. Please join us – just

contact us through the details below.
