PARK WOOD: On Wednesday February 27, the Friends of Park Wood Hellingly held a very well attended public meeting and AGM. They were joined by guests from the Environment Agency, the Woodland Trust and Hellingly Parish Council who all spoke to the supporters. Paul Rees, Chairman of the Friends group, updated those attending on the campaign and plans to safeguard the future of the woodland whilst keeping it accessible to all as a local green space. Paul Levitt of the Environment Agency (current owners of Park Wood) explained why the woodland is no longer of use to them as a source of wood to maintain banks and shores, and how government instruct sale of unused assets to save public money. A full survey of the woodland was conducted in Autumn 2018 by Jim Smith-Wright of the Woodland Trust who talked about what he found, from rare plants to invasive species. He explained that Ancient Woodland now covers only 2 percent of the country so it’s vital that it is protected and its management properly undertaken. Hellingly Parish Council continue to support the group in their campaign and have included the woodland in its neighbourhood plan, giving another level of protection. The meeting was a very positive and encouraging event for the group who will all continue to work tirelessly towards a solution.

COLOUR SHOW: Today, Friday, evening and tomorrow, Saturday, Hailsham photographic Society present an Audio Visual event at the Civic Community Hall, Hailsham. I have been to a few of these now and they are absolutely fabulous. I cannot recommend enough that you go along. Audio visual productions make up the Colour Show. Members produce digital photography sequences and back them with appropriate music, sound effects and narration. The subjects offer considerable variety; holiday to humour and documentary to dramatic landscapes. Members who don’t produce their own audio-visual sequences are encouraged to submit photographs that are mixed into miscellanies that add to the variety. Hailsham Community Centre will seat up to two hundred and has good sound reproduction to enhance the viewing using state of the art projection equipment. The show will last a little over two hours with a break for refreshments, and opportunities to meet the charity representatives, view a print exhibition and converse with other members of the audience. Hailsham Photographic Society has produced the Annual Colour Show for more than fifty years as one of two annual events that invite the local community to experience members photography. Proceeds from the show support a local charity and society events. A measure of the success of the show is in the number of people returning each year. There is a show this evening at 7.30pm and two tomorrow at 2.30pm and 7.30pm. Tickets are £6 and can be bought in advance from the Camera Centre in Hailsham High Street, by telephone on 01424 225684 or on the HPS website at www.hailsham photographicsociety.co.uk. You can take a chance that there may still be some available on the door, but they do sell out fast. This year the event is fundraising for Cuckmere Community Buses which we all enjoy but which is run by volunteers.
