Pevensey and Pevensey Bay

PEVENSEY BAY ART GROUP: There will be a Coffee Morning tomorrow, Saturday, at St Wilfrid’s Hall Pevensey Bay between 10am and 12.30pm. As well as an exhibition of paintings there will be arts and crafts, cards, tombola, refreshments, tea, coffee, sausage rolls and mince pies. Entry is free

ROAD WORKS: Part of Church Lane in Pevensey will be closed from November 23 to allow Waterlink on behalf of Southern Water to carry out water supply work. It’s anticipated the work is going to take five days to complete. Maybe the one good point of these roadworks is it will stop people taking a short cut to try and avoid the traffic lights.

BEE HIVES: Pevensey and Westham Incredible Edible are applying for funding to buy 11 beehives and create a Pevensey Apiary. They are hoping to run beekeeping courses on the site and use it as an educational resource to teach people about bees, ecology and biodiversity. Bees of course are under threat because of changes in the countryside and other reasons such as speculation over pesticides and two species even became extinct in the UK last century with populations falling by over 50 percent in some places and in six years leading up till 2013 the loss of 10 million beehives worldwide. Apart from all the benefits to the local ecology it’s hoped to sell the honey locally as well.
