Hilldale Community Association


Projects

One of the HCA's objectives is to "promote the benefit of people resident in Hilldale". 

At the Hilldale Fair we put up a Wish Tree in the Village Hall and many people contributed ideas or requests for "projects" to improve our community.  Because this is a popular item, we plan to have the Wish Tree at all of the Coffee Mornings.  But don't wait for the next Coffee Morning or Hilldale Fair to make a suggestion - use the Contacts page and send us a message  or use our email:  hello@hilldale-ca.org.

Quite a number of the Wishes relate to facilities or property owned by the Hilldale Parish Council - the Hall and Playing Field are the main ones. As you can see from the our recent Newsletters the Parish Council has completed a number of projects which have improved the Playing Field and the general amenity of the Village.  

Recently the HCA has:

  • Contributed towards the cost of a replacement swing in the Childrens' play area, £1,000;
  • Contributed towards the cost of the Hilldale defibrillator thanks to the generosity of Last Resort and all of the people who bought tickets for the Fund Raiser last December.
  • Replaced the freezer and associated wiring in the Village Hall kitchen.

In 2017 we had to replace the aged marquee we use for the Hilldale Fair.  That was expensive but we had a generous donation which covered 50% of the total cost.  We still have some funds to support small projects. 

One of the first will be to buy and install a seating bench close to the large play frame in the Playing Field.  We have been fortunate to get a grant from NFU Mutual for £250 to go towards this bench.  We still need another £500 to buy a bench similar to those we already have. 

As you have probably noticed, many of the benches and picnic tables in the Playing Field need to be repaired.  The HCA will try to support the Parish Council to carry out the repairs during 2018.  If you would like to donate to this work, please go to the Donate page where there is information about how to make a donation.

We have a few other ideas but, if you have one, let us know and we'll consider it.  Email us at hello@hilldale-ca.org.
