Chilworth Hall’s management committee is keen to see if there is any way to improve the safety of the entrance/exit arrangement to the Hall’s car park. The car park and the driveway leading to it are part of the freehold of the Hall, and so the trustees on the committee are very much aware that they have a responsibility to try to limit the dangers that are becoming ever more apparent as traffic densities on the A27 continue to increase..

Many thanks to all those who entered into the spirit of this event, you helped us to raise almost £1500 for the Hall’s refurbishment which is obviously a very welcome boost to the fund. Commiserations to those whose bids were pipped at the post: we hope you’re not too disappointed.
The “latest bids” page has been updated. We’ll allow daytime Sunday for checks and protests, and the final results will be announced at the Moviola on Sunday evening. Several winning bids are from anonymous bidders. Winners will receive confirmations by e-mail, along with a note about arrangements for payment and collection of bids.
Thanks again to all the bidders, and special thanks to those whose generous donations made the whole thing possible.
