Closure of Pett Village Hall Website: New Pages on Pett on the Net

With the relaunch of Pett on the Net, and the decision of the webmaster for the the separate website for the Pett Village Hall – www.pettvillagehall.org.uk/ – to relinquish his role for work reasons, the Village Hall site is closing down soon. The key information on that site can now be found on Pett on the Net under the main page – Pett Village Hall – here

Under the sub-headings of the main page you will find details of

  • The 500 Club
  • Regular Events at the Village Hall
  • Facilities
  • Booking procedures
  • History and Location of the Hall

The separate Village Hall website will not be updated any longer and we will let you know when the Village Hall site has been finally discontinued.

The suspect made off in a white Mercedes-Benz C class car, driven by another man. No one was injured as a result of this incident and it is believed that all parties involved are known to each other.

The incident happened at 4.40pm on Monday, 23 April.

Police are seeking a man described as black, 6’1″, early 30s, of stocky build and with a shaved head in connection with this incident. A second man is also sought and is described as being of similar appearance but of thinner build and slightly taller.

Anyone who saw anything of the incident or the car being left, or who may have other relevant information, is asked to contact police by phoning 101, quoting serial 991 of 23/04.

Robin the Brewer at the Two Sawyers

Vince Bunn has sent us the following email:
‘I would like to contact Robin the brewer at the Old Forge Brewery (ex Two Sawyers). Wondering if anyone in the village knew how to contact him – I know many of the villagers had a stake in the brewery. I used to chat to Robin every time we went to the Sawyers about brewing and used to pop into the brewery. He offered to show me the whole brewing process but due to work commitments I could not (wish I had now!). The main point of my contact was to ask him what was the recipe for Petts Progress, in my opinion one of the best beers ever brewed in Sussex. I may try to contact Clive who I think owned the brewery then.
Can any villagers help?’
If anyone has contact details for Robin, please let Vince know at howlinghound@yahoo.co.uk
