Welcome to Nutbourne
Nutbourne is a beautiful, vibrant and friendly hamlet in West Sussex, South East England. It boasts a thousand years of history stretching back before the Norman conquest, and has spectacular views across the rolling hills of the South Downs. Our local businesses prove that it's possible to export all over the world while retaining and developing the environment and character of the area. We're proud of our small, unspoilt village that seems a million miles from the hustle and bustle of nearby Horsham, with family homes nestling among farms, workshops and vineyards. We're committed to conserving and enhancing the area.
Annual General Meeting
We will be holding our Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, January 24, 2017 at 7.15pm. Ms Jilly Marcusson has very kindly offered us the use of her barn at Long Platt as the venue. After the formalities we hope that members will join us for a cheese and wine social. At the event we will be collecting voluntary annual subscriptions of £5 per head (or £10 per household, whichever is the lower). Please join us if you can. Download the Agenda. The minutes of the last meeting, held on 1 November 2016 are now available to download.
2016 Christmas Newsletter and Social Events Flyer
We recently distributed these documents by email, but have put copies on-line in case you missed them or would like another copy. The newsletter gives updates on several hot topics, including work to speed up the village's broadband, noise and pollution from Gatwick Airport, and the Heating Oil Syndicate that may help you to avoid unnecessary expense. The Flyer shares news of several key social events at the Rising Sun this festive season, and is well worth a look. Also, if you haven't seen them and need warming up on a cold winter's day, why not visit our lighthearted gallery of pictures of the sports day last summer to mark the Queen's 90th Birthday?
Nuts about Nutbourne
We are particularly proud of our 9k Run and Cycle event, which is organised by Jim Hool. Each year the cyclists set off at 11am on a Summer's Day, with the runners following half an hour later. All proceeds are donated to Charity, while all of the participants earn the admiration of the village, and get fit into the bargain!. See News Page and Event Photos.
