Burwash Community Fund

2017 AGM

Introduction

A committee was set up in the name of ‘The Burwash Jubilee Community Fund’. The aims of ‘the Jubilee Fund’ are to maintain, and raise funds, for the benefit of community groups and organisations within the Parish of Burwash (subject to the agreement of the committee), to make loans to community groups and organisations to assist with their fundraising needs and to support and augment any fund raising for a Coronation, Jubilee or similar celebration in the Parish.  If you would like to view our consitution please click here.

A fabulous sum of over £4000 was raised in April 2012, mostly at an Auction of Promises, to provide funding for events that were to be held over the Jubilee Weekend in June 2012.  Some of the remaining funds that have been spent locally include projects such as:

  • Buying a bench for Swan Meadow Playing Field
  • Donation to the Royal British Legion Burwash branch to help buy poppy seeds which were then planted in commemoration of the First World War Centenary in 2014
  • Paid for two litter bins on the High Street
