The Annual Grand Damerham Duck Race & Mini Fair is held every year on Easter Saturday, starting at 12.30. The Mini Fair includes lot of fun games for the children after which the main duck race starts (usually at 2.30pm) when in excess of 2,000 plastic ducks are let loose in the river with the race end down river at the church bridge (approx half a mile).

There is also an Easter Raffle (sponsored by 'Mini Bounce'') and duck related children's 'items'  for sale.

This great family fun day includes,Teas and cakes, hot food van, a licensed bar and has been running for nineteen years. 

 

 THE COFFEE POT

    The Coffee Pot started in October, 2011, to provide a meeting place for Village people, with refreshments at “not for profit” rates.  Increasingly, visitors from outside the village are being welcomed, and  we have been asked also provide a venue for other, one-off events.  Although we operate at rock bottom prices, we do make a small profit, and this too has shaped us.  Now, we not only provide a place for friends to meet, and a source of a little revenue for the Village Hall, but each month, we draw the name of one of our volunteers out of a hat – and this person can designate a favourite charity for a donation.  Everyone is welcome, and everyone, just by coming, adds something to the Village and its Hall. We meet most Wednesday mornings between 10.30am and mid-day.

   

DAMERHAM BADMINTON CLUB

Damerham Badminton Club meets in Damerham Village Hall every Tuesday evening from 8 pm.

We are a friendly, social club who play for enjoyment and the opportunity to get and keep fit. We are a mixed group in terms of age, sex and badminton skills.

We would welcome new members to join us

  

Christmas Get- Together  

Every year the Village Hall Committee holds a free Christmas 'get-together' usually around the second Saturday in December when all village residents, past & present and village friends are invited to the hall for mulled wine and refreshments (all free!). This is held as a 'thank you' to the village for their continuing support of the hall. As you can see from the picture we really enjoy this warm & friendly event. At our 2015 event we introduced a toddlers area where the young ones enjoyed some festive activities, we hope to continue this in the future.

Christmas Get-Together 2016 was held on Saturday 10th December much enjoyed by village residents past and present and village friends. Youngsters enjoyed the Christmas activities organised by our treasurer Sarah. Thanks to Cathy for organising the food and to all who help by bringing donations of food, raffle prizes and for giving their time to this much loved village occasion.

This year's event will be on Saturday 9th December, we look forwatd to seeing you there.
