Pett and Pett Level

Big Village Lunch: What a brilliant day - with 80 villagers enjoying lunch, 30 gorgeous puddings, all donated, and Marco the Magician, so talented and so funny. More than £350 was raised, which will be divided between the WI and those village organisations whose members supported the day, including Pett Parish Church and the Pett Village Hall Committee.

Church Services: On Sunday June 14 – Morning Worship, St Mary & St Peter, Pett at 9:30am, Merial Deasy. Sunday Service at the Methodist Chapel at 10:45am.

Village Choir: On Monday June 15 the Village Choir will meet again at 7:30pm in Pett Methodist Chapel.

Pett Older People’s Project: On Tuesday June 16 POPP will feature Annie Cryer with Tai Chi. The session runs from 10:30am to 2pm and will include a two-course lunch for just £5.

Pett Parish Council: Also on Tuesday June 16 Pett Parish Council will meet in Pett Village Hall at 7:30pm.

Pett WI: On Friday June 19, Pett W.I. will welcome Kieron Brennan from The Alzheimer’s Society, who will speak about Dementia Friends, a government backed campaign offering people in England the chance to understand what it might be like to live with dementia and turn that understanding into action. Many of us know someone who has been affected by this terrible condition, either personally or as a carer, which kills more people than breast and prostate cancer.

The meeting starts at 2:30pm and will be followed by a delicious tea and visitors are welcome.

And if that wasn’t enough, on Sunday June 28 Pett WI will host one of only four Centenary Teas in the County. A Vintage Tea entitled ‘Putting on the Ritz’ will be held for both WI members from other Institutes, and non-members with a fashion show by Niche of Rye, the Corelli String Quartet, and the granddaughter of one of Pett WI members, playing the harp.
