DOWN YOUR WAY (July 4th):Stone Cross

‘FROM chopping board to clapperboard’ was the theme of a recent talk at Eastbourne Moviemakers. Chris Conil entertained fellow members with tales of his career as a baker and actor, illustrated with videos of adverts he has starred in. The club’s next meeting today (Wednesday) is a practical exercise in videoing outdoors, if the weather allows.

New members always welcome, especially if they have a camcorder and want to get involved. Meetings are on the first and third Wednesdays of every month in Stone Cross. Contact Julia on 01323 507712 for more information.

RECENTLY, Year 6 from Hankham School travelled to the Isle of Wight for a PGL Activity Weekend at Whitecliff Bay. This is a multi-activity residential course where children are introduced to a whole host of new experiences and challenges. They had a fantastic time; the sun shone, the organisation was great, and the children all enthusiastic, very well behaved - and thoroughly shattered when they returned on Monday.

Special thanks to Mrs Reynard for all her hard work in ensuring the children had a great time, and to all the staff at the PGL Centre.

WOULD you like to go to a concert, performed by some really superb musicians? This will be the fifth year these artistes have performed, for the enjoyment of the many friends of St Nicolas’ Church in Pevensey and to contribute to the ongoing maintenance of this ancient and beautiful church.

Their music has been described as ‘revealing a new dimension of the exquisite’, and it takes full advantage of the excellent acoustic qualities of the church.

Go along and enjoy a concert of Baroque Music with internationally acclaimed performers Alison Bury, violin, Neil McLaren, flute, Catherine Rimer, ‘cello and Tom Foster, harpsichord.

The music will be performed by candlelight, re-creating a typical evening recital held at the Palace of Sans Souci, where King Frederick the Great performed in the first rendering of J S Bach’s “Musical Offering”. The concert is on Friday July 13, starting 8pm. Admission is £10 (pay on the door) and you are invited to take a picnic to enjoy in the tranquillity of the churchyard from 7pm - wine and soft drinks on sale.
