Also on Tuesday April 8 will be the Annual Parochial Church Meeting 2014.

Because the church is important to the village and you may wish to hear about its activities and finances.

On Friday April 11 Pett W.I. will welcome Elizabeth Paraskos, Principal Ceremonies Officer at Hastings Registration Office who will be giving a talk about the History of Weddings. As this is something that many of us have experienced, it should prove to be an interesting and informative talk.

Visitors are always welcome at the meeting, which starts at 2:30pm and, as always, a delicious tea will follow the talk.

And talking of Pett WI, this year members will once again be involved in organising a big village lunch. The Pett Big Village Lunch & Feast of Puddings, a joint venture between Pett Church and Pett WI, will be held on Sunday June 1, from 12:30 to 4pm at Pett Village Hall.
