Photographers of Poynings*

The Exposure
In 2020, Holy Trinity Church is celebrating 650 years of worship in our beautiful village, and we are kicking off the year with a Downlands calendar. We are inviting you to submit photographs of the surrounding area to use in the calendar. Here are the requirements for entry:

  • 9×6 landscape photographs, not mounted, no border, and with a matt finish.
  • As you are passing us the copyright for publication, all photos must be taken by the photographer.
  • Photos can have images of livestock, but not children.

Entries should be posted to Orchard Cottage, Dyke Lane, Poynings by Friday 2nd August. The winners will be required to send in a JPEG file within 24 hours of being notified.

The 3rd Annual Village Cricket Match will take place at The Cricket Ground (opposite Mill Lane) on Friday 14th June. The Village versus Poynings Cricket Club, a Twenty20 game, will start at 5:30pm and last about three hours. To make this bearable, there’s a barbecue and a bar. The Village Team is actively looking for new talent. If you are interested in playing, fielding or helping, please get in touch with Rupert or Mike.

Poynings Country Fete

Poynings Fete
Please join us at our traditional village fete in the (former) rectory garden on Saturday 15th June from 2:00–4:30pm. This event helps fund the general upkeep of our beautiful Norman Church. There will be games and stalls for all ages — golf, toys, plants, cakes, books, a raffle and a tombola. Enjoy a scrumptious cream tea and watch the maypole dancing or puppet show with a glass of refreshing Pimms.
