Welcome to Sulhamstead & Ufton Nervet Community Website!
WELCOME to our new website, completely re-designed for 2014 and for the years ahead.
Hopefully you will find this website much more user friendly, a key source of information about our locality and what goes on, in and around our two villages.
We want to keep you informed about current activities and emerging news items of interest that are likely to affect the residents who live and work here. We have set ourselves the target of keeping up to date with new information and removing items that are no longer current, so we will review items on a fortnightly basis.
Essentially this is a live site that you will find useful, and we welcome your input on what you want to include yourself and what items you would like to see on the site that are not featured at present. A contact form can be found at the bottom of this page.

In the main arena there will be a variety of events throughout the day, Circus Acts, Dog Show, Air Cadets Brass Band, Egg Throwing contest to name but a few.

This will all be complimented with a Hog Roast or an alternative selection of food (including vegetarian options) from Burghfield Spices. All can be rounded off with a ice cream.
The programme, which can be purchased on the day or in advance from selected outlets, will list all the stall holders and the timetable of events happening throughout the day.
The Burghfield Residents Association is a small group of hard working individuals and this is the main annual event organised by them. All profits that are made over this weekend and from other minor events are donated to local groups and charities.

Make the Batter Matter for the Spinal Injuries Association
As a charity we have limited resources and rely heavily on the goodwill of the public and individuals like you to help us out.
The money raised from this event will help the Spinal Injuries Association offer support to individuals who become paralysed as well as their families, from the moment a spinal injury occurs, and for the rest of their lives. We do this by providing services and publications which enable and encourage paralysed people to lead independent lives.
Every year in the UK over 1,000 people experience a spinal cord injury and there are an estimated 40,000 spinal cord injured people in the UK alone.
