FLOWER FESTIVAL: We are all working at full throttle getting ready for this weekend’s Flower Festival. We have some great stalls including professional craftspeople selling jewellery, lovely quilted items, handmade chocolate, beautiful prints and cards and more. This is on top of our regular stalls, the popular bric-a-brac (rebranded as Vintage and Collectables this year), clothes stall, tombola, plants and the refreshments. I am running the clothes stall and I have been given some lovely things from top notch brands like Hobbs, L K Bennett and Reiss. The church will be full of lovely flowers and our art exhibition continues as well so there will be plenty to look at. The event is on all weekend 11am to 5pm Saturday and Sunday. Come along and join the fun.

Titled Landscape, Environment and Rural Change in Southern England, 1720 to 1850, the lecture will be given by Dr Carl Griffin, reader and head of the department of geography, University of Sussex.
