VILLAGERS started bonfire night early this year to celebrate the centenary of their village hall.
Hundreds turned out in Cheriton to enjoy a bonfire and fireworks display to mark 100 years of the popular village hall.
A torch-lit procession led the villagers into nearby Goodens field where a large bonfire was built and the display lit up the night sky.
Residents came from nearby villages such as Kilmeston and Tichborne to join in the fun, as the hall serves a wide range of needs for the community, from amateur dramatics to yoga classes.
Children from Cheriton Primary School also took part in the celebrations with a spooky Halloween costume competition, won by five-year-old Jack Boissier for his pirate outfit.
Will Beardmore-Gray, chairman of the village hall committee, said the village wanted to put on an event deserving of the special occasion.
He said: “We thought that we needed to mark the anniversary with an event for the whole community, and what we have looked to do is to organise an event really focused on Cheriton and the local villages like Bramdean, Tichborne and Kilmeston.”
Local residents praised the event and congratulated the organisers.
Jane Farrer, 42, of Cheriton, said: “The organisation tonight was brilliant. This is the first time in the 13 years I have lived here that we have done something like this and it was a great idea.”
Roy Worth, who has lived in the village for 20 years and serves on the parish council, added: “We are very proud of the village hall and it is being celebrated by almost the whole village in wonderful fashion with a magnificent fireworks display.
“People living here participate with such energy.”
