Fittleworth remembers those who have died and those who were affected in any way by war. A service was held at St Mary’s Church Fittleworth to mark this and the Centenary of the Armistice Day 11.11.1918

Many Fittleworth people and visitors gathered to remember those who died or have been affected by war. Scouting and Guiding Colours were lowered in remembrance, wreaths were laid and the names of those on Fittleworth’s War Memorial who had died, were read out and a cross placed in their memory.

We will remember them.

Fittleworth Store’s shop, cafe and children’s playground, including the older children’s area, are now open! All welcome!

Many of us enjoyed a very happy (if wet!) grand launch party to celebrate our first very successful week of trading. Click  here to see a glimpse of Fittleworth’s new community meeting and shopping place. Thank you to everyone who made it happen, is supporting it or/and is helping by becoming a shop volunteer.

We hope to see you there!

Please see the Community Shop pages in the Menu on this site for more information.
