Kaleidoscope Pre-school

Kaleidoscope Pre-school operates from a purpose designed, accessible building in Hampers Green and provides term time sessional childcare for children aged 2-5. The children are cared for in a welcoming open plan, free flow learning environment where the experienced team focus on learning and development through a variety of activities that support the Early Years Foundation Stage. The children also have access to a large safely enclosed garden with a soft surface covered area for ride on toys, a play house, a wooden pirate ship, a walk in sand pit and large lawn and natural shade from three large established trees. To the rear of the building there is a securely enclosed nature garden with a small child safe fish pond, a bug hotel, a digging pit, storytelling area, fruit trees and vegetable and fruit growing areas. Kaleidoscope Pre-school has been established for over 20 years within the community and is a not-for-profit registered charity with an active committee of trustees.

Petworth Town Band

The Band was founded in the nineteenth century when almost every town and village had its own band. It is now one of only a handful of traditional West Sussex village bands to have survived. It leads the Remembrance Day Procession through the streets of the town and plays at many other local events, in addition to two concerts and the Christmas Lights Switch-On.

Further afield the Band regularly appears at the Cowdray Gold Cup Polo, summer fetes and other public and private events. Our President, Lord Egremont, and the National Trust provide a band room above Petworth House Stables (entrance adjacent to Church Lodge) where rehearsals take place every Monday from 7.00 to 8.30pm.

The Band is a friendly and inclusive group and welcomes new brass, woodwind and percussion players of all ages and abilities. Uniforms are provided and the loan of an instrument if required.

Subject to availability the band can undertake public engagements, such as fetes and concerts, also private parties and corporate events.

Please refer to our website for details of how to join or book an engagement.


Petworth Vision

Petworth Vision

THE VISION

Petworth Vision was set up to address the aspirations of the residents, businesses and visitors of Petworth.  

By harnessing the efforts and skills of townspeople and organisations within the community and building strong public/private sector partnerships, Petworth Vision aims to achieve positive results for the whole community.

The three main areas of our work are as follows.

1. CREATING A SENSE OF PLACE

A great opportunity exists for Petworth to use it’s rich heritage and wonderful buildings to encourage visitors to enjoy the old town with a new experience. The hard part is respecting the old and yet still encouraging an attractive, modern interpretation. Getting this right will go a long way to giving Petworth a successful future.

2. SUPPORTING A VIBRANT RETAIL ECONOMY

The retail offer is dominated by nonessential retail which does not necessarily meet the needs of local residents. The perceived lack of affordable shopping has been raised in the residents’ surveys. To ensure a sustainable and vibrant economy, the town’s businesses need to be careful not to alienate residents and, at the same time, not to compromise on its strengths as having a strong independent sector and a centre with an extremely low vacancy rate.

3.CO-ORDINATED MANAGEMENT

The administration of any town like Petworth is complex, with a Town, District and County Council each having their own roles and responsibilities. We also have the South Downs National Park Authority with responsibility for planning. There are also partnerships such as Petworth Community Association and Petworth Business Association.
