Pett and Pett Level

Pett Sports Pavilion: Despite the inclement weather around 100 people turned out for the opening of the new sports pavilion on Monday May 2. Representatives of all the local sports clubs were present and after short speeches from both Parish Council Chair Judith Dean and Rother District Councillor Chris Saint, the ribbon was cut by two members of Pett Piranhas, the village children’s cricket team.

Sadly the activities earlier in the day had to be cancelled due to the weather but the first cricket match of the season did take place after the formal opening. With improving weather forecast and the summer sports season now underway, Pett residents will certainly be able to enjoy this new facility.
