Who are we?
We are a group of people who have come together for the further benefit of East Hendred and visitors to the village, to organise event/ entertainment and to try to raise money as support for charities, groups, societies and residents of the area. The main focus is on entertainment and fun for all ages in and around East Hendred.
Each year we will distribute half of our profits by way of Grant. Anyone can apply for a grant, but we do make some restrictions: each application must be for a specific project and applications must be made in writing by 31st January annually. You can only make one application each year, not all applications will be successful and the committee’s decision is final, unsuccessful applicants can apply again in following years.
After the grants are made the remaining half of profits, surpluses or interests earned during the year will be invested in a ‘long-term’ deposit account to form an Endowment. The Endowment is primarily for interest bearing earning potential, but may, at the discretion of the Management Committee, be used by EHE for the long-term benefit of EHE or East Hendred.
We currently run a Thrift Shop on Friday afternoons between

We aim to organise 8-10 events per year, which include Bingo, Dances or Discos and now the Springline Villages Festival – watch out for our posters!
We are keen to invite new members to join our committee, we meet approximately 4 times a year; maybe you have ideas or an interest but are not keen on committees – well that’s ok too!
