The Summer Fete and Fun Dog Show held on Saturday 14th August was a great success and huge thanks go to all those involved. The weather was sunny and the main attraction, the Fun Dog Show, drew a large number of entries. At one end of the cricket field the team of the Pett Level Inshore Rescue Boat (PLIRB) displayed the rescue boat, and everywhere a variety of stalls offered a wide range of goods from walking sticks to eco friendly beeswax food wrap, from original artwork to colourful bags and baskets. The usual teas and cakes were sold in the hall.
The overall takings amounted to £2,784, before expenses, and donations will be made to Rother Responders, Rye and Winchelsea Memorial Hospital and the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance Service, The balance of the proceeds will go towards the upkeep of the Winchelsea New Hall.
The New Hall is fully open for bookings and events however we ask all our hirers to remain cautious. In the interests of everyone’s safety we will continue to supply hand sanitiser and extra cleaning materials. Please feel free to wear face coverings and make full use of our new easy to open windows and doors to increase ventilation.
