Welcome to the
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
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.

Billingshurst & Disrtict
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

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

Natalie Evans, 2nd Billingshurst Guide Leader
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
