1000 Years of Corhampton Church

Serving the Community for a Millennium

One thousand years of the   Meon Valley

Corhampton Church is believed to have been built in 1020 and has been in continuous use for the last 1000 years.  It is a living monument to our rich heritage.   In celebration, the community is planning a series of cultural and community events.  With the help of The National Lottery Community Fund, Winchester City Council, and Hampshire County Council, the aim is to foster inclusivity across the whole village; young and old; healthy and infirm; prosperous and less prosperous.

The following community events are being planned:

Music

A series of concerts in local community spaces and ‘sing-alongs’ with a heritage theme, involving the elderly, adults, and children together, providing entertainment during events such as the celebratory party

Arts

A tapestry is being produced by the local school children, ably assisted by community volunteers meeting every Thursday afternoon at the school.  This will involve a timeline covering the last 1000 years.   Commemorative mugs are being produced and will be given to all local school children.

An exhibition of locally produced artworks and historic artefacts.

Greenery

Flower arrangements will be produced from local gardens to decorate the above performances and two flower shows are planned.  These will have the theme of growing and using herbs for medicinal purposes as well as a display of roses and dahlias.  The children at the school will also be learning about herbs through the ages, and growing some too.

Entertainment

A celebratory party is planned for the whole village to attend which will include music provided by local musicians.  There will be tickets sold for this at a subsidised price in order to encourage full participation.  It will include a meal and drinks in a beautiful local setting in the village.
