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.
