Welcome to the Sway Village website, an online portal for everything related to the village of Sway, a unique and vibrant village on the southern edge of the New Forest in Hampshire. This website contains information for residents and visitors alike and features links to local shops, businesses, clubs and societies.
Can it really be that time of year already? Indeed it can - and plans and preparations are already underway for this year’s Fete and Carnival week. The theme for 2014 is ... Myths and Legends, which will give you a wide range of costume ideas for the Carnival and for your scarecrows and other events.
Please note that the dates are slightly later this year and all the events are in July, beginning on July 4th and continuing until July 13th.
More details and information will appear in Sway News each month but just to whet your appetites one of the new events is an historic evening walk around Sway, led by Tony Blakely – a fantastic opportunity to find out more about our lovely village.
We are hoping more of you will try your hands at Scarecrow Making this year and we are extending the time they will be on display, putting them up earlier to really set the carnival mood in the village.
Finally, it is good to see the photos of the children at the Little Flyers getting so much fun out of their new large construction kit, bought with money from the Carnival Funds.
If you have any thoughts or ideas do please get in touch.
