Pett and Pett Level

St Nicholas, Pett Level: Over 50 people from Pett Level, Pett and Fairlight came to celebrate the inaugural “social” event, “Decorated for Christmas” at St Nicholas, the little church on the beach at Pett Level, on December 15. It was a tight fit at times, and hard to see with just Christmas tree lights and candles, but a great atmosphere with a mix of church regulars and non-church attendees. Look out for more events in the future.
