Community

Sway is a vibrant community with many clubs and societies covering a great many areas of interest, why not get involved today? There are also a number of regular events taking part in the village each week so there's always something to keep you occupied. If you run a club or society in the village that's not listed here then please get in touch with your details and we'll get you listed on the site.

 
  • Sway Football Club
  • Sway Cricket Club
  • Sway Junior Football club
  • CARNIVAL 2021

    It’s currently a very strange and challenging world but in spite of this the carnival committee are still planning to hold some events this year to give us all something to look forward to. We are planning events that could happen if the restrictions remain as they are currently, and if they ease then we will add more as and when we know.

    More details will be posted later but at the moment we are planning : The scarecrow display , a children’s walking treasure hunt, an adult walking treasure hunt , a family scavenger hunt , a talent show ( possibly online ) and possibly garage sales.

    A new event which you may wish to get involved in soon will be making bunting to decorate your house either in the windows or outside. While you are confined at home you may want to make a start; sewing, knitting, painting or using whatever medium you wish, in any shape or form. We are aiming to have a Sway totally decorated in bunting of all sorts.

    Finally we would like to say a huge thank you to Kirsten for her magnificent efforts with the advent windows and for raising over £1500 which she has given to our committee to distribute for the benefit of sway families.

  • Recipe Callout

    Artist out of residence Jonathan Oldfield is working with Spud Works in Sway to put together a culinary time capsule of the area during the pandemic and is looking for your recipes.

    Fo the older members of our community Jonathan wants your recipes for anything that you've loved cooking over the years. For the younger people amongst us he'd like you to cook one of the recipes and document your experience.

    You can find more information about the project one Spud Works Out of Residence page and get involved through their facebook group.

  • CARNIVAL 2020 - Cancelled!

    Sway Carnival is about the community of Sway coming together for a week of fun. Unfortunately coming together is the last thing we should be doing at the moment and for the foreseeable future. So with regret, like the olympics, we are postponing Sway Carnival until the week starting 2nd July 2021. We were well on the way to  preparing an exciting full programme of events, so we intend to transfer it all to our new future dates.

    We do hope that when life returns to normal the Carnival committee, along with other village clubs and businesses can put our energy into instigating a grand Sway Village celebration event.

    An idea of a creative and enjoyable thing to do while isolating at home. Why not make a Cheerful Charlie scarecrow  for your garden?  A new friend,  who will make you all smile , a great activity to do with or without the children! I will put the details of an easy way make one on our Facebook page and also on the carnival website, straw or hay is not essential! Maybe we can share and upload photos of them  on Facebook , rather than us advertise where they are. It could be fun, but it must be safe. If you happen to see one..... Smile

    Stay safe everyone. Remember Sway Carnival is not cancelled, merely postponed. It will return bigger and better!
