Spring Approaches! We enjoyed a couple of interesting talks over the winter months. There was the talk on Newhaven Fort in January and the Eastbourne Police and Murders talk in February. The next two meeting will have a rather different format with a film show in March and a more practical session in April about Medieval and Tudor cookery with samples to try! The April meeting will be the AGM and we would like some new members to join the committee. Please contact Rod if you would like to get involved.

At the Museum: An afternoon course entitled Beside the Seaside looking at the transition of Hastings from a fishing village to a popular holiday resort. Topics will include bathing machines, paddle steamers, the Pier and Biddy the Tub-man. This takes place on Saturday 6th April, 2.00 to 4.30pm at the museum. Places are limited so please call 01424 222058 to book.
An Exhibition: we are planning another Local History Exhibition on Saturday 22nd June in the Memorial Hall. These have been very successful events in the past and we have been given a lot of new material over the last year or two which we can display. There will be various themes including local farms and market gardens, the village school (appropriate given the current redevelopment work) and the village in World War 2 (this year marks the 75th anniversary of the outbreak). As always, if you have any items of interest (photos, stories, documents), please get in touch. We will need some volunteers on the day to help with setting up and providing refreshments. Also, if you can provide a cake or two that would be very welcome!
