OUR PARKS FITNESS: Fitness coach, Andrea had the best time ever this week and, in all honesty, so did we. A whole hour of exercising and sometimes dancing to some of our favourite tunes, we were all sorry when it was over and after a game of Stuck in the Mud before cooling down, we had to go home. Steve Wennington of Hailsham Active announced plans to install an all-weather exercise area and plans to continue after the summer session was eagerly welcomed. At that point the grant for free exercise sessions will have expired but for the introduction of just £1 per person per week, it was felt very much worth it. It’s great fun and gentle exercise for the whole family, but especially encouraging the over 55s to come along and join this free group which takes place every Saturday morning from 9am and 10am at Western Road Recreation Ground in Hailsham. Just turn up at the Rec on a Saturday morning or better still, if you have access to the internet, please register at www.ourparks.org.uk for numbers. If you would like to come along just turn up. Wear loose fitting comfy clothing and bring some water.

PEVENSEY MARKET: IN THE SQUARE The next market is on 14th July Saturday from 10 – 3 Stalls welcome for a donation to a good cause. If you are interested call Robert on 07740 828215 The May Market in the Market Square Pevensey raised nearly £100 towards the Pevensey defibrillator fundraising campaign. There were stalls from bric a brac to plants, a Raffle, Town Trust stand The Royal Oak and Castle were serving Breakfasts and as the Market ended Morris Dancers took over the Square to perform for everyone there. By chance one of the visitors was Russel Barrett who had an amazing story that during a 10km race in Newbury he had a heart attack and his life was saved by a Defibrillator and he has since raised money for others in his home town. This just goes to show what a lifesaver having an AED in Pevensey installed somewhere in the Market Square area could potentially be.
