ELLISFIELD GROUPS

Ellisfield Groups Overview

Bell Ringers

Bell Ringers have been active in Ellisfield for well over 100 years, providing the classic village soundscape. More information HERE.

Horticultural Society

The Horticultural Society organises a regular programme of visits and illustrated talks, with expert speakers throughout the year.  Meetings are held in Ellisfield’s Memorial Hall and in Cliddesden’s Millennium Village Hall. New entrants, expert or novice, to their Annual Shows are always very welcome. Members can also benefit from discounts on seed and other garden supplies. More information HERE.

Ladies Club

The Ladies of the village formed a Social Club some 38 years ago, in order that they could meet and get to know not only their immediate neighbour but also the village community as a whole socially. This has proved to be very successful and they are growing all the time. At the time of writing (November 2012) they have about 60 members. They meet once a month, and this may take the form of many different types of social events. They have events ranging from Skittle Matches, Dances, Walks, Theatre Trips, Harvest Supper Entertainment, Prom Concerts, Christmas Carols and much much more – something for everyone! More information HERE.

Neighbourhood Watch

Ellisfield has an established Neighbourhood Watch organisation. Jane Hannah is Ellisfield’s Neighbourhood Watch coordinator. More information HERE.

Oil Syndicate

The Ellisfield Oil Syndicate is a community-based project which exists to allow its members to purchase domestic heating oil at a reduced price. The syndicate is run on a purely voluntary basis.

Although the majority of its (as at May 2013) 51 members are in Ellisfield, the Syndicate also serves Farleigh Wallop, Cliddesden and Dummer. Since its inauguration in 2008, the Syndicate has processed orders totalling over 350,000 litres and has saved its members more than £7,000. More information HERE.

Recycling Initiative

There are a number of recycling initiatives in place in the village; organised by residents who spare the time to collate and recycle items which cannot be included in the green wheelie bin. More information HERE.

Village Association

Formally established in March 2012, Ellisfield Village Association’s aims are:

Their Mission Statement is “To Protect, Appreciate and Enhance Ellisfield and its surrounding landscape”. More information HERE.

They act as contractors for the Parish Council for the regular grass cutting of the Lower Common, Gravel Pits and Parish Burial Ground.
