MY WIFE AND I: had a most enjoyable evening last Monday when we attended the 30th Anniversary of the foundation of the Pevensey and Westham Historical Society. The Chairman, Mr Ian Say, took the meeting through the various national events that occurred at the time of the formation of the Society (Margaret Thatcher was the Prime Minister and Edwina Currie declared that all the eggs in UK were infected with salmonella) and also paid tribute to the founder members, several of whom were at the meeting. The Society has an average strength of approximately 100 members but is always looking to new members and with a subscription fee of only £3.50 (£6 for two at the same address) it is not expensive. Meetings are held on the 1st Monday every month (with the exception of January and August). For more information about the Society please contact the Secretary on 01323 472721.
