Village clubs and organisations

For a small village, Reed has a very active social life. Whether you want to play cricket, enjoy carpet bowls, read books, go line dancing or tend to your garden, Reed has a group for you. Look at the events calendar to check what’s coming soon.

Reed Cricket Club

Reed has hosted a Cricket Club since 1956. The Cricket Club has met particular success recently, winning the National Village Cup in 2012 and 2017. Read more about Reed Cricket Club here.

Reed Line Dancers

Reed Line Dancers meet every Monday evening at the Village Hall. If you haven’t tried line dancing, you haven’t lived! Everyone is welcome, from semi- professional to absolute beginners.

Indoor bowls

The Reed Bowls Club meets every Tuesday evening at 8pm for an evening of indoor bowls in the Village Hall. Membership is £3 per year and the cost to play is £2 an evening. The season runs from the first Tuesday in September to the last Tuesday in May. It is a great opportunity to get together during the week for some light exercise and to catch up. For more information please contact Shirley Shepherd or Janet Shepherd.

Reed Gardening Club

We meet every second Wednesday in the Village Hall. Interesting speakers on all aspects of gardening. Annual Show and a plant sale. A must for all keen gardeners in Reed and the surrounding towns and villages. See the notice board for our next event.

Reed Readers

A small friendly group who meet to discuss books we have chosen to read. Nibbles may be consumed and a glass of wine help the comments along. Read more about Reed Readers here.

Reed Pudding Club

Not what you might think! When you come to any of Reed’s events you will soon discover Reed’s pudding club - a happy band of (mostly) ladies who produce sweet courses to die for.

Reed Community Library

The Reed Community Library is held in the school every other Saturday during term time. Everyone is welcome to come along between 10 and midday. Enjoy a cup of tea or coffee while browsing the large stock of books. There are books to suit all ages: non- fiction, a good range of classic fiction and the latest paperback best-sellers.

Friends of Reed Church

The Friends help raise funds for the maintenance and upkeep of Reed Church. They organise various fundraising social events over the course of each year.

Reed Choir

Formed in the summer of 2014 to sing a choral evensong to conclude a flower festival at St Mary;’s Church, Reed Choir now has over 30 members aged from 8 to 80, drawn not only from Reed but also from other local villages. Read more about Reed Choir here.

Save the Cabinet Action Group

The Action Group was formed to try to prevent the last pub in Reed being turned permanently into a house. As well as leading local resistance to the current planning applications, it arranges various social and fundraising events. Read more on the group’s website here.

Reed Sing-song

Join us for a relaxed evening of community singing at Reed Village Hall. Words are displayed on a screen to sing along with us and the guitar accompaniment to a wide variety of songs. Bring along your own drinks, cups and snacks. Children are also most welcome. Proceeds for each Sing Song evening go to charity. Contact Liz Jakeman to find out more information or keep an eye on the Village Events Calendar to see when our next evening is scheduled.
