Well there has been much effort by members of the Pett Village Hall Committee to ensure that the new floor in the main hall has been laid within timescale and budget. And that is despite the fact that the original contractor was unable to fulfil the contract at the very last minute! At the time of writing the main hall is due to reopen as planned on Monday June 23. So grateful thanks are certainly due to those committee members who have worked so hard to achieve this.

Therefore POPP on Tuesday June 24 will feature Annie Cryer with Tai Chi and Antonella Bruce will also be on hand to provide Head and Shoulder Massage. The session runs from 10:30am to 2:30pm and will include a two-course lunch for just £5.

On Wednesday June 25 the Mobile Library will be in Pett and Pett Level. It will start at the Church at 10.10am, moving on to Chick Hill at 10:50am and finishing at The Smuggler at 11.20am.

Next month Pett Flower Show will be with us once again. The marquee is still available to hire on the Saturday night after the Flower Show itself at just £100. If anyone is interested, please get in touch with a committee member.

One or two new volunteers have come forward, together with those who enjoyed the experience last year so much that they have agreed to do it again! All help is greatly appreciated and it is never too late! If you can spare an hour or two, just get in touch with a committee member, details in Pett Parish News.
