There seems to have been some confusion about the refreshments at the Michaelmas Extravaganza. Whilst Pett WI did supply some of the cakes, the refreshments were provided by Doreen Goodsall and her team, whose sterling efforts were very much appreciated by organisers and customers alike!

Don’t forget on Friday October 19:

Pett W.I. meeting at 2:30pm in Pett Village Hall. The speaker will be Pam Vieler with a talk entitled ‘Memories After the War’.

Pett Nats meeting at 7:30pm in Pett Village Hall. The speaker will be Sue Dengate with a talk about the Stables Theatre.

And on Saturday October 20 don’t forget the Jumble Sale organised by the Friends of Pett Churches. It starts at 1:30pm and jumble may be brought to the hall at any time after 9am but no furniture or electrical goods please.

Also on Saturday October 20 there will be a Creart Coffee Morning at Pett Methodist Chapel from 10am to 12 noon. Come and enjoy a cuppa, and perhaps have a go at some art!

Church Services on Sunday October 21 – Holy Communion, St Nicholas, Pett Level at 8:00am with Kay Burnett taking the Book of Common Prayer; Sunday Service at the Methodist Chapel at 10:45am.

POPP on Tuesday October 23 will feature an outing to Lathe Barn on Romney Marsh.

As mentioned before in this column, our local PCSO, Richard Birchard will be holding a surgery in Pett Post Office on October 26. He will be there from 10:30am and it will be your opportunity to come and meet him to discuss any local community or Policing issues or just to say hello.

After three years without a Rector it is very good news that a new Rector, Revd. Richard Barron and his wife Cath have moved into the Rectory on Battery Hill. His first service in Pett will be on Sunday October 28 at 11am and it is hoped that as many people as possible will come to Pett Church that day to welcome him to the village.
