Pevensey and Pevensey Bay

PEVENSEY GHOST WALK: The Ghost walks for Halloween are now over. Thanks to all those who turned up for the public walks on Saturday and Tuesday 31st. In particular a large group came from a Caravan Rally at Fairfields farm in Westham –many dressed appropriately for the occasion with a few Draculas, plenty of Witches and the odd Zombie. Remember Ghost walks are not just for Halloween but run every Saturday at 7.30pm from the Castle Car Park (except this Saturday 4th) More details at www.sussexguidedwalks.co.uk

ST NICOLAS PEVENSEY: The Church website advises ‘Restoration work starts again on St Nicolas Church from 11 September. Sadly we will not be able to allow visitors to the Church during this period. It is possible that some Sunday Services may be cancelled or held at St Wilfrids instead. We will do our utmost to keep the Church open. Please check the website and the Church noticeboard for updates’‘

PEVENSEY COURT HOUSE: You should have noticed scaffolding going up this week as local Painter and Decorator Graham Leader is repainting the Court House. It should not take too long and the result will look far better than the decades of weather and car fumes have left the paint at the moment. The scaffolding will leave the pavement free for pedestrians and all relevant licenses and safety requirements are in place.

PARKING IN THE BAY: There has been a lot of talk about parking charges being introduced and Pevensey Parish Council were prompted to make a statement on their Facebok page to quell the rumours ‘CAR PARKING IN THE BAY For the avoidance of doubt I have spoken to Wealden District Council regarding this subject and I am advised that Decriminilisation of on Street Parking is to be discussed at a Committee meeting of WDC in December 2017 where a decision will be made as to whether this will progress. If approved implementation will take between 18 - 24 months - so a long term project. “NO DECISIONS HAVE BEEN MADE TO DATE’
