THE LOCAL branch of the Royal British Legion works hard raising funds for the Legion which is the UK’s leading Service charity. Practical care, advice and support is provided to serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans of all ages and their families.
On Friday, November 9, the Legion will parade with its standards and a bugler for a service of Remembrance in the Memorial garden at St Wilfrid’s church, Pevensey Bay. A two-minutes’ silence will be observed and wreaths laid, honouring the memory of the dead of two World Wars and all subsequent conflicts. The service will begin at 10.50am.
ON SATURDAY November 10, they will be holding their annual Poppy Appeal Coffee morning in Westham Village Hall from 10.00am to 12noon. Legion members will also carry out a house-to-house collection in Pevensey and Westham. Then on Sunday, Remembrance Day services will be held at St Lukes Church Stone Cross and St Nicolas Church Pevensey. The service at St Lukes starts at 10.30am, attended by the Legion’s Standard Bearers and members, and a contingent of Scouts, Cubs and Beavers. At St Nicolas, the service starts at 10.50am
PEVENSEY Coastal Defences say they are using dump trucks to spend next week moving shingle in preparation for the next 8 metre tide on November 15. Initially this will be between PBSC and Sovereign Harbour, and they will gradually work west to east during the week.
