SENIORS INFO DAY: The information day held recently at St Johns Church Hall, High Street, was well attended. As well as the many organistions with leaflets, brochures and helpful advise on living at home whilst getting old and less agile. They had a cookery demonstration by Peter Bayliss a former Master Chef winner in 2006 who showed us how to make some healthy dishes, with tasting sessions. When I asked for a recipe I was given a sheet containing all the meals that he was demonstrating. Also on hand were members of Polegate Town Council who arranged for us to have teas, coffee and cake, followed by lunch of freshly made sandwiches, with teas and coffees. Well done Polegate Town Council for organizing this event. I certainly learnt a lot.
