New Abingworth Village Hall

The Parish Council is settling into the new Abingworth Village Hall. Public meetings have been held in the new spaces; the Parish Office has also moved there and is open for enquiries Monday to Friday, 10am to 3pm.

Community Get-togethers – 3rd Wednesday

In addition to events and classes run by the various groups and clubs in the village, the Community Group of the Parish will be facilitating events to encourage people in the community to get together. These will always be on the Third Wednesday of the month. The first, on 16 January, was a fun Quiz, served with pie and mash from Pulborough Pie Shop, which was fundraising for the High Bar Lane playground improvements. On Wednesday 20 February there will be a wine tasting evening – supplied by Henning’s Wine Merchants of Pulborough. Come to quaff and learn!  Details of how to obtain tickets are on the Parish website. If you would like to help run a one-off event on one of the nights later in the year please contact Community Group Chair, you can send an email to:
