Community EventsDown Ampney is a vibrant community and the Village Hall with the attached Community Shop & Post Office are the hub of the village. A wide range of community functions and events occur during the year.
Some of the regular events are:
Summer Fête - usually May or June
Gardening Club Annual Show - first Saturday in September
Arnhem veterans' reunion - mid September (held to remember those who were based in the village during WWII, and give thanks for the successful Arnhem airlift in 1944.)
Christmas Bazaar - late November
Advent Workshop - early December
Also, there are monthly community quiz nights, and various social events such as auctions, musical evenings, suppers and BBQ's. The hall is central to many of the village fund-raising events.
