The Mini Fair includes lot of fun games for the children after which the main duck race starts (usually at 2.30pm) when in excess of 2,000 plastic ducks are let loose in the river with the race end down river at the church bridge (approx half a mile).
This great family fun day includes a BBQ, Teas and cakes , a licensed bar and has been running for eighteen years. Next Duck Race Easter Saturday 26th March 2016.
The Coffee Pot started in October, 2011, to provide a meeting place for Village people, with refreshments at “not for profit” rates. Increasingly, visitors from outside the village are being welcomed, and we have been asked also provide a venue for other, one-off events. Although we operate at rock bottom prices, we do make a small profit, and this too has shaped us. Now, we not only provide a place for friends to meet, and a source of a little revenue for the Village Hall, but each month, we draw the name of one of our volunteers out of a hat – and this person can designate a favourite charity for a donation. Everyone is welcome, and everyone, just by coming, adds something to the Village and its Hall. We meet most Wednesday mornings between 10.30am and mid-day.
DAMERHAM BADMINTON CLUB
Damerham Badminton Club meets in Damerham Village Hall every Tuesday evening from 8 pm.
We are a friendly, social club who play for enjoyment and the opportunity to get and keep fit. We are a mixed group in terms of age, sex and badminton skills.
We would welcome new members to join us
Christmas Get- Together
Every year the Village Hall Committee holds a free Christmas 'get-together' usually around the second Saturday in December when all village residents, past & present and village friends are invited to the hall for mulled wine and refreshments (all free!). This is held as a 'thankyou' to the village for their continuing support of the hall. As you can see from the picture we really enjoy this warm & friendly event. We look forward to seeing you between 12 and 3pm.
The Village Hall is host to several Jumble Sales throughout the year.
The next Jumble sale in the hall will be on Saturday 24th October 2015 at 2pm, when all proceeds will go to St.Georges Church, Damerham.
