Pett & Pett Level

POPP Christmas Party: POPP held their annual Christmas party at Pett Village Hall on Tuesday December 23. Julian Avery, Deputy Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex visited the Project on the day and chatted with the members during the morning period. 50 members from Pett and the surrounding villages enjoyed the entertainment, which was provided by Keith Osborne, a resident of the village. He had the members join him in singing and using a variety of instruments to accompany his music. The members enjoyed a buffet style meal and were provided with wine to toast the festive period and all the volunteers, who helped make the day such a success. Popp would like to take this opportunity to thank all the local people who support us, especially Kit McLean from Icklesham Boot Fair, which provides a substantial amount to help us run the project. POPP would also like to thank both Pett and Guestling Parish Councils, who in recognition of the support Popp gives to the senior residents of Pett and surrounding villages, made very generous donations for the forthcoming year.If you are over 60, come along and join in the activities of POPP at Pett Village Hall every Tuesday between 10.30am and 2.30pm and enjoy lively entertainment as well as a two- course meal.
