Welcome to the digital home of the CDRA

December 2022

We had some great time at the Crawley Down Christmas Lights Switch On Event on 26th November. The turnout was amazing and we would like to congratulate the Crawley Down Christmas Lights Committee on a great display once again! We still have more to come however...

CDRA Christmas Tree Trail

Grab your coat and wellies and explore our wonderful village. Follow the trail to see the best lit homes in the village, and if you find all the giant illuminated Christmas Trees you have a chance to win an amazing prize!

The Trail will be running from 6th - 31st December, with the trees being lit from half an hour before sunset till 9:30pm.

The trail starts at the Haven Centre, you can collect directions and your entry sheet from the bar, or you can download and print it yourself below.

Alongside your directions and entry sheet, you will need:

  • warm clothes
  • wellies (the route takes you around the village pond when may be a little bit muddy)
  • torch
  • pen/pencil

Once completed, leave your entry sheet at the Haven Centre (when you grab a refreshing drink and snack!).

Good luck!

Santa's Sleigh Ride 

We can confirm that Santa has found time to visit Crawley Down again!

Father Christmas will be here on 20th December, travelling around the village on his sleigh to say hello to all of the children (& grown ups!) in the village! Santa will be arriving at 16.15 and flying off again at 19.45.

The route that he will take around the village will be published in advance and Father Christmas will have a tracker so that you can follow his route around the village! Click 'going' on the facebook event to get all of the updates.

Many thanks to the Copthorne Christmas Float Committee for bringing their Christmas joy to Crawley Down
