Events in Stanford Dingley
Stanford Dingley has a wonderfully enthusastic and active Events Committee which are comitted to organising a great diversity of events for the local community over the seasons. We are extremely lucky to have a village hall, a village field and a village green which gives us great opportunies to hold a variety of events.
Over the past few years we have held plant sales on the green, talks given on a variety of subjects from a walking talk the geology of the pang valley to historical military talk in the hall. There has been village picnics in the field, Easter Egg Hunts for the children of the village, curry nights and Christmas parties. The big event of last year was a village party held on the village field which brought the whole community together for a wonderful afternoon of music, food and drink.
Keep checking back to this page to keep updated on our planned events as the government guidelines change and we are able to recommence holding activites.
