70TH ANNUAL SPORTS DAY: In the fist year of the new one day event the was Chair Richard Courcha Kay Hackett Treasurer and Carol Shuttleworth as secretary plus committee. In 1958 the sports section donated £3 12 shillings (old money) for a drinking fountain. I wonder why it was never replaced. Sir David James of Sutton Hall Barcombe donated £100 towards running the sports in 1966.

LEWES NEVILLE WI: Met on Wednesday May 16 at 7.30pm at St Mary’s Church Hall. It was the annual Resolutions meeting. The resolution which was Mental Health Matters, was presented by Stella Stephens who gave a clear and concise view of the topic. This was followed by discussion by members and then we voted and a majority supported the resolution so this will be taken forward by our representative to the AGM in Cardiff next month. After the business of the meeting we celebrated the forthcoming marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with drinks and canapes and a splendid two tier lemon cake made by Stella Stephens which was absolutely delicious. This was followed by a fiendish quiz on the Royal family throughout history. Do you know who is the 51st member of the family in line for the throne? Princess Alexandra.

At next month’s meeting, on Wednesday June 20, we will hear Veronica Hamilton-Deeley talk about the work of the East Sussex Coroner. The competition will be Flower of the Month.
