Ifold is a village in West Sussex. It is the largest of the four parish settlements. Ifold as it is today, began in the same way as Durfold Wood where plots of land were sold originally to people who used them as holiday or weekend homes.

Ifold has a community centre, Kelsey Hall, built in 1978 and extended in the 1990s with the help of a lottery grant. The hall hosts a number of weekly activity groups and the Little Acorns nursery, as well as an annual Arts and crafts fair. In the past few years, the hall has also begun hosting film nights with CineMobile touring cinema.

There is also a Scout Association which has Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Brownies, Guides and Explorer Scouts. The scout hut serves Ifold and the surrounding villages. The scout association is run by qualified leaders who are trained in first aid and they run camps regulary.

Other Historical Information
