The Country House Company enjoys its relationship with the local community and is involved with charities, organisations, clubs, schools and businesses across the region. We appreciate the importance of community and each year give vital support to numerous events and projects. Either as production sponsor for The Petersfield Youth Theatre, sponsor for Save the Children Fundraising events, or supplier of the signage for the East Meon Country Fair, you will see the familiar blue Country House Company signs across the region.
Village fairs, school fetes and other events are essential forms of fundraising for local charities and schools and The Country House Company also supports many of these across the region including Rogate Summer Fete, East Meon School Duck Race and Sheet Primary School Bonfire Night.
During the sporting season The Country House Company supports cricket clubs in Hampshire with adverts in fixtures booklets and our banner at the grounds, we support the Bereleigh Ride and various Point to Points and we fund the Pimms Bar at the annual Lobster Shoot in East Meon raising money for The Countryside Alliance.
We support the Watoto Trust by supplying bags for shoppers at their various fairs and supply packs of cards to many of the bridge fundraising events across the county .
We never forget that our home is in Hambledon, and not only do we supply the T Shirts for the popular Hambledon Hilly run but some of The Country House Company team also take part!
In addition to the above, for 2017 we are excited to be providing a completely different form of support. As a local business we appreciate the importance of using and supporting local suppliers and producers particularly of food and drink. Therefore we have teamed up with Hampshire Fare providing the funds for a totally new publicity campaign; the food group’s new photo board. Sponsored by The Country House Company, the board depicts a country scene drawn by local artist Simon Chadwick. We collaborated with Hampshire Fare on the project with the aim to help engage the public and to highlight the people behind Hampshire’s produce. The board proved a big hit at the launch in early January and the plan is to take it to events in and out of the county and to get as many people as possible showing their smiles in support of the local Hampshire food scene.
