WELCOME TO THE WEST SUSSEX SMALLHOLDERS CLUB WEBSITE

We are a friendly support group aiming to network, help and encourage productive smallholding on any scale. 

 

Based in West Sussex, we meet on the last Wednesday of every month at the Brinsbury Campus of Chichester College.

 



 

CLUB SOCIAL SATURDAY 1st November we are having a Halloween / Bonfire Night get together.

It is going to be a chance for good food, good company and time for members to have a good catch up with each other. As the date falls nicely between Halloween & Bonfire Night, there will be touches of both included. We will be having apple bobbing, a pumpkin carving competition and as National Sausage week is the following week, for all members that produce their own, we will have an impromptu sausage tasting competition!! On the food front, there will be Jacket Potatoes, Chilli, Stew, Breads, Sausages and any other goodies that get brought along for the table. Tickets are £5 per person (under 14's go free). Location is at Natalie & Malcolms on Knepp Castle Estate (directions available) and will start at 5pm and will go on until everyone wants to leave! Tickets available from all committee members. Please confirm if you will be attending so we can ensure there is enough food & drink for all!!
