Downside & Hatchford Sports and Family Day - was on August Bank Holiday Monday 2015

Last year we have to say, the weather proved to be too much, after a good start to the morning the heavens opened. After all the work that goes into getting Sports and Family Day ready, the one thing we have no control over is the weather. Many Thanks to Dan and Family whom without, Sports & Family Day would strugle to get going.

A massive thanks to all the volunteers who turned up and all the stalls who set up, we did get a couple of races run, but the rain would not give in, lets next year will be better

Downside and Hatchford Sports & Family Day is an annual event which has been running for over 100 years on Downside Common. This Year is Our 103rd in August, so hopefully the weather will be great. We have people traveling from all over to come to the Event.

Sports Day

Downside & Hatchford Sports Day started in the 19th Century, as a way of bringing all the Village Community together for some fun and games, it originally took place on Whit Sunday, But in 1910, as a mark of respect to King Edward VII, who died shortly before Whit Sunday (6th May 1910). The Event was moved to August Bank Holiday Monday, and has remained there ever Since. The Event has Continued annually apart from a few years where there has been no committee to run it. You don't have to be a resident of Downside or Cobham to enjoy the day, It provides a day of free races from tots to OAP's, and is sponsored by many local businesses to make a free day of sport for all.
