Titchfield Bonfire Boys Society (TBBS) exists to put on the annual Titchfield Carnival, the history of which you can read on this website. This takes place on the first Sunday of the autumn half-term.
The Committee are a dedicated body of volunteers who not only take on all the organisation of Carnival day, but throughout the year raise the funds with which to do so. Our aim is to have the maximum of fun whilst so doing, and we try and vary all our fund raising activities with the village and the wider community in mind.
We are always looking for volunteers and we have a wide range of skills in our midst, which we are always pleased to increase with new members. The Carnival has never made a profit yet(!), but because we fund raise as well, we like to give something back to village organisations when we can, and recently we have given money to the over 70s for Christmas, helped with the funds of the Community Luncheon Club, purchased a steel pan for the primary school and helped towards kayaks for the Sea Scouts.
