Etchingham Photo Competition 2020
We only accept business details for those based in etchingham, or providing regular goods or services to Etchingham residents, the details are provided for the benefit of village residents and no charge is made for adding your details, but you might like to help the Parish Council and ERGT raise funds for new playground equipment by making a small donation.
The Etchingham Recreation Ground Trust (ERGT) has been working on plans for online funding towards replacing playground equipment. The first part of this is Give as you Live, when you shop online at over 4,000 retailers sites, by logging into the site via the Give as you Live site a small percentage of the sale is passed on to the charity you have nominated, for raising fund for our playgrounds the charity is Etchingham Recreation Ground (Queen’s Garden) Trust.
Join Give as you live, then all you have to do is remember to enter the site you are buying from via Give as you Live and you will and you will be contributing to the funds, the small amounts on each purchase may not seem to be a lot, but lots of people doing it every time they shop it soon adds up – EVERY PENNY COUNTS.

There have recently been numerous reports of dog mess being found around the village, including near the children’s play area in Queen’s Garden, and on the public footpaths, where dog owners have not cleared up after their dogs.
The majority of dog owners do the right thing and pick up after their dog, unfortunately there is a small minority that are not picking up, it is YOUR responsibility to pick it up.
Many people enjoy walking the footpaths that cross the countryside, especially dog owners because the fields and woodland make it very enjoyable walking and exercising your pets. Always remember – you MUST ONLY walk on the marked footpath routes.
The Parish Council produced a series of leaflets detailing some of the footpath walks around the village, they have recently been updated and can now be downloaded from this site.
Etchingham Village Voice in the Battle Observer
Etchingham has a village correspondent who gathers information from village residents and writes the weekly Etchingham Village Voice column in the Battle Observer. A wide variety of information can be included in the column such as forthcoming events, fund raisers, coffee mornings, special achievements, public service information and many other items, in fact anything that would be of interest to readers of the paper.
Do not wait until the last few days before sending in your information, send the details as soon as you have them available, then your event or function can be given a brief mention a few weeks in advance to give people a chance to note the date in their diary, then the full details can be included nearer the date.
Remember also that your supporters are interested knowing how successful your event was, if it was a fund raiser how much you raised for your good cause, so always remember to send in details after the event.
There are several ways to send information, but to avoid errors during copying the best method is email .

THE VILLAGE HALLS
The new Etchingham Village Halls opened for business on 1st March 2015. Since that time they have been put to good use by both the local community and people further away. The halls are a stunning purpose built venue with two halls of different sizes accommodating a wide variety of activities. The halls can be hired individually or together depending on the purpose of the event. During the summer months the attractive terrace and village square, which also form part of the development come to life as use is made of this outstanding location.
During the day time the light and airy Parker Hall is available for the full range of community activities and external hire. Currently it is put to good use by many yoga and pilates courses, ACRES soft furnishing courses, a mothers and toddlers group and local organisations such as the brownies and the local singing group. Outside of school hours the Ahrens Hall becomes available for hire and together with the Parker Hall can be used in the evenings and at weekends. The Ahrens Hall has been built to take a full size badminton court and netball markings are also on the court. Bleacher seating is available for use in the Ahrens Hall and a modern sound and lighting system has now been installed for use in this hall.
If you would like to hire the halls or require any further information, please do look at the dedicated village hall website – www.etchinghamvillagehalls.co.uk which has an up to date availability calendar along with the GDPR policy of ETSR and the village halls. Alternatively, do contact the bookings clerk on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07855 239848.
