Lewes House of Friendship has undergone a major interior make-over.
To launch the new look, the trustees hosted a reception at which Miles Jenner, Head Brewer at Harveys Brewery, spoke warmly of the welcoming atmosphere of the venue and of its importance in the town.
Occupying a wonderful period building at 208 High Street, Lewes, and using the product of a generous bequest, the House has been revamped for the 21st century.
The result is a vibrant, up-to-date place for Lewes’s senior residents to meet friends, enjoy good food and have fun.
Heather Hicks, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, said: “Delicious lunches cooked daily by our talented chef, Keith, exercise classes, computer lessons and social groups are just a few of the things on offer.
“And, when not in use by our members, we shall hire out space to others for meetings and receptions.”
The House is currently hosting a magnificently eclectic exhibition of pastels by Tom Walker – the designer of The Battle of Lewes tapestry – running until the end of April. Other artists are now invited to exhibit their work in the beautifully refurbished exhibition lounge.
Anyone who would like to sample what the Lewes House of Friendship has to offer, is interested in hiring its rooms, or mounting an art exhibition is invited to get in touch. Call in any weekday morning, visit www.houseoffriendship.org.uk or telephone 01273 476469.
