COMMUNITY spirit is alive and well in the tiny villages of Selham, Ambersham and Halfway Bridge, where everyone recently turned out for a barbecue.
It was organised by a committee of volunteers, led by Rosie Robson and Rosie Drayson and including Sarah Selman and Janet Colman.
Following the success of community gatherings for the Diamond Jubilee, the royal wedding and the village fete which is held every other year, villagers decided they couldn’t wait for their next get together
Mrs Colman said: “This year it seemed the summer would pass with no chance for everyone to get together. A group of residents decided this wasn’t good enough and laid on the very enjoyable and well-attended barbecue.
“We don’t have a village hall where we can organise community events, we usually hold them in people’s gardens, but this year we decided to have it in the gardens of our village pub, The Three Moles.
“About 50 villagers attended which goes to show you don’t need a reason to have a good time.”
