HISTORY STUDY GROUP: This evening (Friday) Eastbourne local history enthusiast and guide Alan Wenham will give an illustrated talk entitled Eastbourne’s East End at 7.45pm in the village hall. London was not the only town with an East End very different from the fashionable residential areas to its west. Behind the original Eastbourne Sea Houses was an artisans’ quarter inhabited by fishermen, blacksmiths, building labourers and laundry workers. While much of Victorian and Edwardian Eastbourne was a prosperous and well-laid-out area for the fashionable, life in the working class east side was very different in character, attracting the attention of local philanthropists and the Salvation Army.

Our theme this year is Preserving the Memories featuring and gathering people recollections of events that have happened in our church from wedding to barn dances and a bit of history with a Lunsford/ Pelham shooting incident. Tomorrow, Saturday, evening we are very fortunate to have some members of the Heathfield Choral Society who will be singing extracts from works such as Karl Jenkins, Armed Man. Howard Goodall, Every purpose under the Heaven. 7.30pm for 8pm start at the church. Tickets are available in advance by contacting Elly on 01825 763831 or on the door for a donation of £5 which will include a glass of wine and some nibbles. This informal evening is an opportunity for you to hear not only some remarkable singing but a chance for us to reflect on the many talent people we have in both villages and surrounding area. We are grateful to Heathfield Choral Society for agreeing to be part of our celebration weekend.
