Simon Gentry has posted the following on the Pett Facebook page

Bentley’s Fish Bar
Pett Level Road

Hi can anyone please help me I trying to find out more details of a Fish Bar / Fish and Chip shop that I believe was called “Bentley’s Fish Bar “
I believe it was on Pett Level Road Winchelsea
In the 1960’s
If you have any memories of this please can you let me know also I would really love to see any pictures that you may with have the Fish Bar in them
I believe it was owned and run by a local family of the name Bentley
Many thanks

News from Pett Methodist Church

After a busy Christmas season we are preparing to do some essential work on our building. The original chapel, built 1848 is very damp. This is now causing some problems, so work should be starting in March to repair brickwork and pointing and replace the false ceiling and improve damp-proofing on the walls. While all this is happening the Post Office will still be open, but you will find Anthea in the church itself, so entry will be via the main door.

The fair trade stall will also be in the church so you can still purchase items.

Village Voices and band rehearsals will continue as usual.

Along with this important work we have plans to open the well that is in the garden. We have started but it is going to be quite a job, so will probably take much of the summer!

McColls who run our outreach Post Office contacted us to find help for Anthea before Christmas to help her unload and load her gear. This we did with many thanks to all the volunteers who stepped forward.

Jigsaw Puzzle Evening: We have just trialled this new idea and although a lot of people wondered whether it would work we had a great evening. I must admit it was the first time I had offered refreshments and been ignored, due to the concentration. Thank you to all those who came and yes we will repeat it!

A Date for your Diary: Friday June 5th. There will be a concert by Jonathan Viera at the Village Hall. He is an amazing singer/songwriter, who has toured the world during his career. More information and tickets will be available soon.

Dates coming up:

Lent study for all!: In the Methodist Church, 4 Wednesdays in March, 7-30pm.

Palm Sunday April 5th: Donkey procession through the village 10am followed by worship at 10-45.

Good Friday, April 10th, Procession from the Methodist Chapel to the Parish Church.

Easter Sunday April 12th: Easter breakfast, 9am. (Book with Wendy)Egg hunt and Worship at 10-45am.
