Pevensey and Pevensey Bay

PEVENSEY BAY LIBRARY: From the start of September there will be a temporary library open in St Wilfrids Hall which will offer a small range of popular books to be borrowed. This service will be open 10am till noon on Monday to Saturday or whenever the Church Hall is in use. The library Service also remind everyone that Bexhill Eastbourne Langney and Hampden Park Libraries can be used as an alternative and the County Council have an e-library as well

CASTLE COTTAGE: with some activity earlier in the year with notices going up advertising the property to let and the being apparently ‘under offer’ all seems to have gone quiet again and the building is still standing empty. Lots of visitors still ask why English Heritage are leaving such a lovely building looking derelict

DICKENSIAN EVENING: it was a great success last year and will be running again on December 5th but it appears not in the same way as last year. The Smugglers Inn will be certainly holding the Dickensian Evening with events and stalls in their Car Park but it looks like there will be no road closure or stalls down the High Street. At least someone appears to want to keep this successful and crowd attracting winter event going.

MOZART REQUIEM WORKSHOP: on September 12th starting at 10.15. Take a look at for some more details. The day will end with the singers giving an informal performance along with soloists and accompanied on the Organ. Tickets will cost £7.50 on the door.
