Pett and Pett Level

Pett Level Naturalist Society: Don’t forget the Pettnats walk around the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve on Saturday June 6. All those interested can meet at the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve Car Park kiosk at 10am.

Church Services: On Sunday June 7 – Celebration Service, St Mary & St Peter, Pett at 11 am. As well as the love of God and the presence of Jesus, this service will celebrate all the goodwill that exists in our village and, in particular, all the clubs and societies and the work of our Parish, District and County Councillors.

In addition, the Tower Poppy, which Alan Turner has so generously given to Pett Church, is now on display and will be blessed at the service.

To make the celebration easier, the service will take place at the later time of 11am, which fits in nicely with the Big Village Lunch!

Village Choir: On Monday June 8 the Village Choir will meet again at 7:30pm in Pett Methodist Chapel.

Pett Older People’s Project: On Tuesday June 9 POPP will feature Andy Robertson on his keyboard. Nail Technician Sheryl Tucker will also be there should you fancy a manicure! And don’t forget – help is available at POPP on a weekly basis for anyone who has difficulties with their hearing aids or batteries. The session runs from 10:30am to 2pm and will include a two-course lunch for just £5.

Mobile Library: The next visit will be on Tuesday June 9 when it will stop outside Pett Church from 12:05pm until 12:35pm.

Fairlight End Open Gardens: Chris and Robin Hutt are again opening their garden at Fairlight End on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 June from 11am till 5pm. Charities benefitting from this include Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie Cancer Care and our own Pett Village Hall.

Anyone who can support this event with a cake, please bring it to Fairlight End before 10am on either day. Any containers need to be marked with your name for collection after the event. Visitors from far and wide comment on the superiority of Pett baked cakes!

Pett Flower Show: Pett Flower Show, another extremely popular annual event, is not too far away now. It will be held on Saturday July 25 at the Recreation Ground and this year’s theme is Pets. This is the theme for both handicraft and painting and the photographic subject is Pet(t) animals, which should provide plenty of scope for the creative amongst us.

This day is very much run by the village for the village and everyone can contribute, no matter how much or how little. Volunteers are always needed throughout the day from the preparation to the clearing up.

Details of the committee members are in the schedule, which was included with the May edition of Pett Parish News so please get in touch if you feel you can make a contribution. And it’s good fun too!!
