News Snippets
  • Sedgefield Village Action Group

    SVAG recently attended the Public Inquiry for the development of 100 houses on the former Sedgefield Hospital site. This appeal follows the refusal to grant planning permission by DCC Councillors at the initial hearing.

  • There’s still time to enter!

    Sedgefield Agricultural Show is still growing in its 164th Year. The Sedgefield and District Agricultural Show on Saturday 12th August has already attracted a large amount of interest and support and the Show Committee anticipates a record number of entries and attendees in 2017.

  • Miners remembered

    Fifty years after the closure of the Deaf Hill Colliery, the men who lost their lives underground or died from the dust they inhaled during their days at the coalface, have been remembered in a special prayer of hope.

  • Jewellery appeal

    St Edmund’s church would very much like to use any unwanted pieces of old or broken gold and silver jewellery, to help in acquiring a much-needed new sound system.

  • New Sedgefield Youth Club

    Sedgefield Town Council is starting up a new youth club, to run on Monday evenings in the refurbished Fletcher Room in the Parish Hall. The first sessions will be held on Monday 3rd July, from 6:00-7:00pm for children from school years 3 to 6 and from 7:00-8:30pm for school years 7 to 11.

  • The Dashing Vicar

    Sedgefield Day on June 10 saw the official opening at Ceddesfeld Hall of a major Sedgefield in Bloom project, the Stepping Through Time Garden. Volunteer Bloomers, with help from local contractors, artists and generous donors, have transformed a large overgrown area into a stunning woodland garden.

  • The Bees at Hardwick are “expanding”

    No, we’re not producing giant bees, but over the past two months we have grown from just 3 colonies to 9. This has been done by buying in two colonies, splitting existing colonies and retrieving swarms – twice so far!
