IMPORTANT – PETT VILLAGE HALL PARKING: MONDAY 31 JANUARY/TUESDAY 1 FEBRUARY – UPDATE

On Monday 31 January the Parish Council’s contractor was due to be undertaking essential tree work between the boundary of the Village Hall and the allotments.

The contractor has now said that unfortunately there are high gusty winds forecast for Monday so they will have to postpone the commencement of the works. They will review the forecast tomorrow for Tuesday and keep the Parish Council updated.

Assuming the works go ahead then, please do not park on the tarmac area in front of the Hall on 1 February (or later date if that is when it is safe to carry out the works). PVHMC will keep you updated. Please let others who may park there know. Thank you.

The Village Hall Committee cannot accept responsibility for any damage to vehicles parked in that area caused by the tree work.

It will be safe to park on the gravel area at the side of the Hall.

Tim Rothwell, Chair PVHMC

Archive Resource Centre Opening Day

ARC logo

Back in the Spring of 2019, when we began this community archive project for Fairlight, Guestling and Pett, no one foresaw the pandemic, so we didn’t expect that getting to this stage would take the best part of three years. Now, finally, we have a home for the archive, secure, wired, equipped and furnished and we are planning for digital cataloguing of our collections to commence in the first half of 2022. We are holding an Opening Day at Pett Methodist Church on February 12th, so you can see for yourself.

On the day, the Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex, Andrew Blackman, will formally declare the ARC room open at 11:30am. In the main hall, we will be exhibiting a collection of original artwork from significant 20th century artists with links to this area. Haydon Luke will be giving an extended talk about this subject, at 12 noon and 2pm. As well as the exhibition and the talks, there will be refreshments and a chance to talk to committee members about future plans and to see the ARC room. Entry is FREE but you will be encouraged to support us by becoming (or renewing as) a Friend of the ARC under a new, annual scheme. The cost of running the ARC is modest, but it doesn’t pay for itself!

Getting to this point has required money and dedicated time, so the Open Day is also an opportunity to thank all those who’ve helped us make it this far: Rother District Council and our ward councillors, Roger Bird and Andrew Mier; The Isabel Blackman Foundation; Fairlight, Guestling and Pett Parish Councils; and the many individuals from across the area who have made donations, large and small, to our Friends’ fund or who have donated equipment or their time.

We look forward to welcoming you on the day and if, when you have seen what is planned, you would like to get more involved in the project just have a word with one of the Committee members.

Please note: masks may still be required on the day
