WELCOME to the Binfield Heath parish website. This page is regularly updated with 'headlines' from the Parish Council and other organisations and events in the village. For details of specific matters of interest please look on appropriate pages.
Flower Show 2015
The 67th Binfield Heath Flower & Dog Show will be held from 12:00 noon on Bank Holiday Saturday 29th August on the field opposite Holmwood, Shiplake Row. From late July entry forms should be available from Binfield Heath Village Stores and the Corner Shop, Lower Shiplake. Advance notices of the Floral Arts and Photography classes may be viewed in the local shops. Full details on binfieldheathflowershow.com
Additional helpers always welcome before, on, or after, show day. If you are able to assist please contact a member of the committee or simply turn up at the show field (opposite.Holmwood) during show week. Could you help run a traditional stall at the Flower Show? There are too few volunteers at present to fill the rotas for old favourites such as the coconut shy and splat the rat. Volunteering would mean taking the money and organising the stall for a minimum of an hour between 12 noon and 5pm. If you can help, please contact Evelyn McQuater, 07912 619970, firstname.lastname@example.org or Virginia Thomas, 07557 949852, email@example.com; a sign-up sheet should be in the BH Stores soon.

Garden concert to be an annual event
Tamesis Chamber Choir delighted a village audience at the midsummer garden concert in Binfield Heath on June 21st. The 150-strong audience enjoyed a picnic in the lovely gardens of Terri and Malcolm Jiggens, listening to a medley of film music through the decades. Binfield Heath Village Society, which organised the concert, hopes to make the midsummer garden concert an annual event, moving to different venues around the village.
