ROYAL British Legion stalwart Sandra Tolhurst may have moved 50 miles away to a village in Kent – but that still doesn’t stop her being very hands-on in local matters. No doubt she will return on October 30 to catch the 2.30pm start of the local branch’s AGM. She, among others, will welcome newcomers, offer them refreshments and hope to recruit them as poppy sellers for the November 11 remembrance.

NEAR neighbour Pauline Turner isn’t lacking when it comes to supporting the Legion. On Saturday she will once again serve supper at her Castle Terrace home and hope to beat the £500 she raised that way last year.

IF you miss all that, then cough up 50p at Westham village hall at 10am on November 10 for an enjoyable coffee morning.

PEVENSEY Dreamers were engrossed last week at a talk at the Ethel Wood hall from a member of Eastbourne Auction House, learning lots about auctions and having their own treasures valued.

ON Thursday the Dreamers are off playing Bogart and Hepburn with a tour round Sovereign harbour on the African Queen. Thursday next week is a little tamer with lunch at the Smugglers.

ENJOY songs from the musicals? Then don’t miss the evening of October 13 at St Nicolas where favourites Michael Johnson and the Robin Post Singers have an evening of Rodgers and Hammerstein.

OVER in the Bay St Wilfrid’s hall is open to all parishioners for the Patronal Festival celebrated by the Rev Neville Manning with music from Tempus Bravura and parish lunch in the hall afterwards.
