This revenue sum will be divided between the following events and initiatives happening in 2022 in Highcliffe to help support the village's vitality and attractiveness

  • Highcliffe Food & Arts Festival
  • NEW A music festival event in September (more news later!)
  • An updated '10-mile map' giving details of the businesses and attractions
  • Highcliffe branded merchandise which has been extremely popular with residents and visitors alike
  • Highcliffe in Bloom - who work extremely hard to make the area attractive, both in the High Street and elsewhere
