Pevensey and Pevensey Bay

PEVENSEY FLOWER FESTIVAL: Its Bank Holiday weekend coming up again and time for the Flower Festival at St Nicolas. The theme this year is’Bloomin Crafty’ showing Arts and Crafts in Flowers. There are going to be over thirty floral exhibits in the Church and several of the exhibitors created a special display at Chichester Cathedral’s Festival of Flowers last month and they were the only representatives invited from East Sussex.

Bell Ringing:If you have ever fancied a go at Bell ringing there is Dewbys Mini Ring on loan to the Church during the Festival with a small scale set of Bells and an experienced bell ringer on hand to help you have a go!
There will of course be refreshments available and all money will be going to the Church Restoration Fund which aims next year to complete renovations in its 800th Anniversary.

PEVENSEY BAY LIBRARY: With the Library lying empty now since January with extensive flood damage, the good news is from September 1st St Wilfrids Hall will be hosting a temporary Library stocked with a small range of popular books for Residents to borrow. The service will be open Monday to Saturday 10am till noon. Meanwhile East Sussex County Council have issued a statement saying they are committed to reinstating a permanent library as soon as possible. This can only be good news for residents and of course those who were employed in the Library

ECCENTRIC ENGLISH: Its often said we are an eccentric race and if you look at the windsurfers in the Sea Road Car Park waiting for a force 8 Gale to subside you can easily believe it. However I think I can trump this as last week on a visit to Glyndbourne Opera I saw a grown man dressed in full evening wear flying a Kite in the interval whilst everyone else had picnics and wine. No he did not even have any children as an excuse and evidently was a Cellist from the Orchestra who packed his kite for an evening in the country!
