The Mayor of Crawley, Councillor Chris Cheshire broke with tradition and held her main charity event in Tilgate Park over the weekend.
The annual event, which raises money for the Mayor’s two charities was held in Tilgate Park’s Walled Garden on Saturday (12th September) and was attended by Councillors and prominent members of the community, particularly within the voluntary sector.
Speaking about her unusual choice in venue, Councillor Cheshire said, “I chose that particular venue because I love the park and wanted to showcase what a wonderful space it is to host a special occasion.
“I think it’s important to take advantage of the park and its facilities after all of the hard work that has gone into updating and maintaining it. It was my way of paying tribute to the Crawley Urban District Councillors who had the vision to buy the park for the town in the 1960s.”
Guests were treated to a delicious buffet of home baked treats using locally sourced produce provided by Groundworks, who run the Community Café. Guest also enjoyed entertainment from local duo Five O’clock Friday and comedian Sajeela Kershi, straight back from the Edinburgh Festival. Chris Oxlade played MC for the evening.
“I had a great evening and hope my guests did too” said Councillor Cheshire. “I would like to thank them for their generosity towards my two charities – Springboard Project and Crawley community & Voluntary Service – and everyone who helped make the event a success.”

Gatwick Computers offer anything from
- A simple equipment service. This involves a clean-up of the interior, dust removal, checking for pending parts failures, virus checks and advice on the positioning of your computer equipment in order to achieve the best performance.
Up to and including the design, procurement and installation of your small business needs.
When your Computer develops a fault!
Firstly the big question – “What am I going to do?” You may ask friends, search the Internet or other media. When you contact a PC repair company they generally say, “Yes fine, bring it in we will have a look”. You undo the cables, transport it to the repair center and you have to wait. Then its back to pick it up and bring it home. (Then to connect it all back up?)
We aim to do things differently. We will come to you! Give us a call and we will arrive (Pre booked, on-time and with identification), Inspect the equipment and after advice and discussion, offer you the best solution balancing both cost effectiveness and your processing needs. You will receive a free, no obligation quote valid for 14 days. (This is due to varying costs a volatility of the market)
“I want something more up to date”
Again, we will come to you. Look at the present setup and discuss what you will be your main uses and your budget restraints then we will advise the best way forward for you. It doesn’t always mean spending all of your hard earned money on a new PC when you may have what you need in order to upgrade to better performance.

ROBIN’S WINTER ADVENTURE
Sunday 21st & Monday 22nd December, The Hawth Studio Crawley
Sunday 2pm, Monday 11am & 2pm
Celebrating 30 years of creating and performing top quality children’s theatre, The Pied Piper Theatre Company is back at The Hawth with its latest enchanting show, Robin’s Winter Adventure
Robin’s Winter Adventure tells the story of a young boy’s courage as he faces the challenge of moving from his cosy village to the hustle and bustle of London. It’s a heart warming tale told with rhythm and rhyme, music and song and captivating puppets. With a professional cast and an imaginative set, Robin’s Winter Adventure is a brilliantly scripted show and a perfect introduction to the magic of live theatre.
Inviting children to embark on an exciting theatrical journey is both a joy and a terror for any theatre actor as children can be the harshest of critics or the most generous of audiences. The fact that The Pied Piper Theatre Company has continued to delight children, and their families, so successfully over the past 30 years speaks volumes for the skill it has in delivering shows that directly engage and entertain young theatregoers.
The Pied Piper Theatre Company was formed in 1984 by actor and artistic director, Tina Williams. Believing passionately that children should experience the very best of live theatre, the company takes plays, especially written for children, on tour every year throughout England performing in the West End, regional theatres and hundreds of schools as well as, internationally, in Singapore.
To introduce a child to live theatre is to give them a life enhancing experience.
“Theatre, particularly theatre for children, fires the imagination, it gives our children the skills and the creativity necessary to face the world, to understand it and perhaps to change it too. We should value children’s theatre and take it seriously.” Lyn Gardner, Guardian theatre critic.
Robin’s Winter Adventure is a collaboration between Tina Williams, Artistic Director and Joseph Coelho (CBEEBIES’ Rhyme Rocket).
Robin’s Winter Adventure is at The Hawth on Sunday 21st and Monday 22nd December. Suitable for children aged 4+.
Tickets priced £7.50 (Family of Four: £26) are available from The Hawth Box Office on 01293 553636 and online at www.hawth.co.uk
To download an the illustrated story of Robin’s Winter Adventure together with the Family Fun Pack, and to find direct links to online booking, visit The Pied Piper Theatre Company website at www.piedpipertheatre.co.uk
