At a recent meeting Hailsham Photographic Society welcomed Ken Scott ARPS Bsc (Hons) Psych, from Steyning Photographic Society. He is a regular visitor to the club having judged audioVisual competitions and given talks in the past. Ken’s interest in photography grew from his love of mountaineering and witnessing first-hand how light and atmosphere can change the look of a landscape dramatically.

His pictures have been displayed on the website ‘Flickr’ and also at The Museum in Horsham for two months. Visit www.hailshamphotographicsociety.co.uk or telephone 01323 845209 to find out more about the club and how to join.

It is hoped to see many members of the public, councillors, potential service users, traders and anyone else interested in finding out more at the Open Day Exhibition.

HAWKES Farm Christmas Fair was cancelled last week. Regrettably, due to the adverse weather conditions last weekend, after much thought it was decided to postpone the school fair. The new date is Thursday December 16 from 2.45pm to 5.30pm.

The grand draw was still held as demanded by Wealden Licensing Laws on December 4 and as stated on the ticket. An independent person, being scout leader Paul Wood of 1st Hellingly Scout Group, drew the tickets. A list of winners will be posted on the Friends of Hawkes Farm facebook page as well as posters around the school.

The Friends of Hawkes Farm School thank the most generous local businesses and other sponsors who donated prizes for the draw.
