1940s Weekend

This year, 2024, the ever-popular 40s weekend happened on the 15th and 16th of June.

Many thanks to ALL who helped make this event such a really great success.

Helen Bodiam again bravely took on the organising of this years event with teams of wartime re-enactors and exhibitors of a variety of military vehicles.

It is for ever a remembrance of the great community spirit that endured hard times and made do whatever.

The weather was good on Saturday but on Sunday we were to be reminded of the need for the ‘stiff upper-lip’ in the face of adversity!

Have any photos? Don’t be scared to send them to our Facebook page.


As ever it was a huge success!
The many exhibits included shops with war-time memorabilia and live demonstrations of old-time farm machinery.  Land-girls, Lumber-Jacks & Jills were there to show you how we fought the war on the Home Front. 

These were the heroes who worked tirelessly in all weathers to maintain supplies of food and fuel.
