VILLAGE QUIZ NIGHT
On Saturday 15th February almost 100 people braved Storm Dennis and congregated at the Village Hall for Quiz Night,
The idea came from Heather Godwin and Wendy Burgess as a fundraiser for the Churches of Pett. Heather organised the event, set the questions and hosted the evening.
The hall was full and a wonderful community atmosphere prevailed.
The total amount raised was an amazing £602.50. All of this will be gratefully received by the churches and used to keep the buildings repaired and running.
The total was boosted by the fact that Rod Rolfe and David Burgess paid for the hire of the Village Hall. This is an extremely generous act and much appreciated.
In addition to this our favourite Quizmaster Ray Barden returned to give us a brilliant and entertaining evening – even if some of us were not too good with the answers.
My sincere thanks go to Heather, Wendy, Rod, David and Ray and also to the scorers – Jeanette, Carol and Stella. Also to Rod for the tricky task of maintaining the scoreboard.
Well done everyone, we look forward to the next one!!!

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

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!
