The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings won an ecclesiastical court case earlier this month to stop works, including installing under floor heating, being carried out at the Grade I listed Holy Trinity church in Poynings.
Join Poynings for their bonfire and fireworks at the Blacksmith Field (behind Forge Garage) on Saturday 4th November. The procession will leave the Royal Oak at 6:25pm approximately. Lighting of the fire and fireworks will follow. Please give generously on the gate. If it follows the pattern of previous years, there will be some food and drink available but the Poynings authorities have yet to confirm that.
You can take material to the bonfire 9:00am–5:00pm, October 17th–November 1st. It must be taken to the bonfire site, not left on the Forge forecourt. Clean burning material only — wood, cardboard — but no tyres, plastic, metal, etc.
Sunday 17th September in Poynings Village Hall. Apple pressing starts at 11:30am. Have your own apples pressed at 50p per litre. Bring your own containers or buy one litre bottles at 25p each. Wash your apples beforehand or wash them on site.
Best Apple Crumble Competition: entries 11:00am–1:00pm in the Village Hall (£1.00 per entry); judging 1:00pm–2:00pm (followed by trophy presentation). Open to Poynings, Fulking and Newtimber residents.
Refreshments, stalls, apple bobbing, raffle prizes very welcome.

Pallet wood available for burning – both broken up and bagged. Bags are located at the side of the small garage in the right hand side of the forecourt of Aviation House, Poynings. Access outside office hours is via a small pedestrian gate on the left. Whole pallets available also, please enquire in the office. Help yourselves but proceed with caution as there are large nails in the pallets.
