Welcome to the

Billingshurst Show

Sunday 30th June 2019

Once upon a time... Are you sitting comfortably? This year the Billingshurst Show is celebrating

the power of stories, old and new, for children and grown-ups of all ages. We’re looking foward to

seeing how imaginatively our theme, Tell Me a Story, has been interpreted by the children on all

the floats and groups in the Carnival Procession. A huge thank you to everyone who took part in

the procession and made such a great effort in preparing the entries.

Stories need authors of course, and we’re delighted to welcome two prominent local authors to

the Show: Philip Beicken, author of The Ghosteleers, who will be opening the Show for us, and

Pauline Emsley, author of The Tear Dragon and Rag Doll Lost, who will be reading her books to

children during the Show.

Is there a more famous story than King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table? The

Spectacular Knights of the Crusades will be joining us in the Arena, complete with castle, featuring

medieval banners and costumes with flaming torches, pyrotechnics and mystic smoke, treating us

to “A Tale of Richard the Lionhearted” as well as “The Legend of King Arthur”. Even better, children

can join in, as squires to the knights, village maidens and a Lady of the Day to become Maid

Marion. In the King Arthur show the children can attempt to pull the great sword Excalibur from

the Stone!

Other events in the Arena include welcome return visits from VMA Dance and Horsham Bluebelles,

maypole dancing from Wisborough Green School and an exciting contest organised by Billingshurst

Scouts and Guides. In the Food Court area we’re spoilt for choice in terms of music, with

performances from Kieran Blackmore, the Petworth Band, Taygan Paxton and Liam Wakefield.

Our Food Court is open for business throughout

the afternoon, and this year for the first time

we’re able to offer contactless payment at the

bar and barbecue, we hope you find this useful.

There’s loads going on all over the field - check

out the centre pages for more details.

We would like to say a big thank you to our

sponsors, advertisers, supporters and helpers –

we couldn’t do the Show without you. Thanks

also to Billingshurst Parish Council for allowing

us the use of the field.

We hope that you’ll wish to keep this

programme as a souvenir of the day and as a

handy guide to some great local services. Have

a great day, and we look forward to seeing you

again next year.

Rotary Club

The Billingshurst & District Rotary Club supports both local and international projects by giving our

time for numerous fundraising activities. We are a friendly group of people with a shared passion

for helping others and enriching lives for the better.

We have two ways in which you can get involved:

Why not join us as a Friend of Rotary? No longterm

commitment - get involved in existing

or new projects as your time and inclination

permits. Friends of Rotary meet in The Six Bells

at 7pm on the first Monday in the month. Short

meeting with a drink and crisps if you insist.

This exciting new initiative is growing and we

have a regular core of volunteers now attending

and not only helping with our existing projects,

but developing new projects, specifically focused

on local charity needs.

Just turn up or contact Tony Priestley for more


email: priestleyatp@gmail.com

mobile: 07940 590 237

Alternatively join our club as a full-time

member. We meet on the second and fourth

Monday of each month in The Blacksmiths

Arms in Adversane, where we have a meal

following a speaker or Project Meeting.

Sometimes we wander further afield on social

Girlguiding has been successful in Billingshurst for many years.

The Guides take part in wide range of activities including cooking, Flip Out, ice skating, Geocaching

and rafting on the Wey and Arun canal. We are working now on our new programme which covers

6 main areas: Know Myself, Express yself, Be Well, Have Adventures, Take Action and Skills for

My Future. The girls are having a great time with the new programme and are now all working

towards their Guide Gold Award.

In April the Guides visited the Houses of Parliament in London and were joined on the tour by

Jeremy Quin. This was an amazing experience for us all, we then went to the Met Police to the

horse stables for a tour and this was finished off with a trip to the Guide shop of course!

We go camping a number of times during the year, this year to Petworth Park, a joint camp with

the Guide division and the Scout District. This year the camp celebrated 40 years – lots more fun

including a silent disco on camp! The girls cook on open fires and take part in caving, climbing,

canoeing, crafts and archery.

The Rainbows are having so much fun taking part in Forest School and last term they had a visit

from the Police to complete their Hats Off Badge. The Rainbows are now having an annual

sleepover in the Guide Hut, fun with their friends and camping indoors.

The Brownies have been climbing at Horsham Clip and Climb, participated in badge work, crafts

and cooking. The Brownies have been canoeing at Southwater Park, they had great fun even

getting stuck at the side. After canoeing round the lake they played Head Shoulders Knees and

Bounce (instead of Toes) they jumped (one at a time).

We are always looking for more volunteers – come and join the fun! www.girlguiding.org.uk/joinus

Billingshurst Scouts

Each week, 1st Billingshurst Scout Group has 150 young people (Beavers, Cubs & Scouts) enjoying

adventurous actives, learning about the world and community around then, whilst rafting, hiking,

camping, shooting, cycling, fire lighting and developing the skills to succeed in life. This can only

happen due to our brilliant volunteers. We have a great team of 20 adults who dedicate at least 2

hours a week to deliver the exciting programme to the children aged from 6 to 14 years.

Volunteering is easier than you think. Whether you can spare an hour a month or a day a year, we

have loads of opportunities both behind the scenes and directly supporting young people. With

full support and training, you can volunteer on a flexible basis. We are always happy to welcome

more adults to the group.

Not only is it incredibly rewarding and great fun, you’ll also learn some brilliant skills transferable

to your workplace and further education. We welcome volunteers from every community and

background. You don’t need to have been a Scout. You just need to believe in a more positive

future and the difference we can make together.

Volunteer today and help us prepare more young people with Skills for Life.

If you would like your child to join this exciting Scout group, just check out our Facebook site,

where you can contact us at https://www.facebook.com/1stbillingshurstscouts/ or email Zoe, our

Group Scout Leader gsl@1stbillingshurst.org.uk.
