Unfortunately Cheam has lost an asset! The Fishmonger who used to park every Friday outside the Village bakers will not be returning. Nothing fishy about it, he’s just retiring!
A date for the diary:
Sunday 9th March 10am-4pm
The Parochial Rooms on The Broadway are hosting a free wedding fair! Helping you to plan the best day of your lives.
There is also a package deal on offer, if you’d like your wedding reception to be held in the Parochial Rooms at the heart of Cheam Village it will cost you just £2495 including bridal flowers, food and a fully licensed mini bar!
Its sad to report that Cheam’s party shop is no more.. the owner is apparently leaving Cheam for sunnier climes. Fear not Cheam still has your occasion needs covered! Dragonfly can provide high quality balloons and Cheam Motor spares is now holding various party items!

Massive thank you to all of the Cheam Traders who donated prizes to the raffle a total of £630 was raised for St Raphael’s Hospice.
This year Cheam’s Christmas fair was definitely the best yet. Local police estimate the crowd this year to have been between 3500-4500 visitors throughout the evening which is an unbelievable turn out in comparison with last years’ estimated 2500.
The fairground netted almost double what they did last year and provided some great rides and treats for the children to enjoy.
Cheam’s young one’s also had some great times seeing Santa on his horse and cart and then in Whitehall where they could relay what they would like for Christmas. We all have faith that Santa can make them all happen, apart from Abbie Townsend aged 5’s wish for a pink unicorn, apologies Abbie.
We as a community owe massive thanks to Smyth & Byford for providing so much this year, in particular Radio Jackie which made the evening flow and even bought us snow!
We had some excellent carol singing from St. Dunstan’s Church of England school choir, some budding performers in that group.
Lots of children got involved in Cheam Sports Shop’s Disney treasure hunt where everyone won a prize!
The Village Travel shop also hosted a raffle which was later drawn by MP Paul Burstow and saw lots of prize winners who benefited from fantastic prizes from gift vouchers to candles.
Characters from the current panto ‘Dick Whittington and his amazing cat’ (at the Seycombe Theatre) paraded around the village in full costume alongside Queenie the famous Chihuahua who has been getting friendly with community policing in her LED lit crystal encrusted pink buggy.
Cheam Baptist Church hosted an impressive evening with organ music, a selection of Christmas carols and festive musical melodies ending with festive jazz.
Finally we owe the biggest thank you to Tim Vine for sparing time in his busy schedule to turn on Cheam’s Christmas lights at no benefit to himself. His speech was hilarious, made all the funnier by Sutton Council having already turned the majority of lights on. Watch the video on Tim’s speech here:
Well done to everyone who made it happen namely Cheam Chamber of trade Chairman Tom and his committee.
Special thanks to Alex Rocha and Jason Sorrell who gave their time selflessly.
Also thanks to all our volunteer stewards for the evening.
