Photography Competition

photo competition
Last year many people entered lovely photos for the downland calendar, and we had a great evening showing over two hundred photos which couldn’t make it into the calendar. The latter, by the way, made £4,500 towards the upkeep of the village hall. This year, while we are not producing a calendar, we would like to invite local people to enter photos of landscapes, people, or local activities. We will then organise a photos, wine and nibbles evening in early December, when the most popular photo will win a prize. To enter your photos, simply send them to photos@fulking.net.

Bobservation No. 51 — Christmas ..

Something of a strange Christmas without Graham’s Carol Service at St Andrews. I cannot understand, whatever the ramifications, why he had to leave in mid November. Surely another few weeks would have been the civilized way for him to bow out.

However, life goes on and the annual village Christmas party is in the village hall on Saturday 8th December from 6 till 8pm and by now you should have received an attractive invitation kindly donated by Ceri. The Social Committee have invited Graham, councillors from County, District and the neighbouring parish of Poynings.

Mulled, red and white wine, beer and soft drinks will be available as will savoury finger food brought by villagers. This evening is such a great chance for all of the villagers to get together. Children are most welcome. It is occasions like this that make Fulking such a vibrant community so please do come along even if you can only stay for a short time.

What a splendid Christmas present to be able to report that refurbishment is taking place of the run down properties in Stammers Hill. Congratulations and thanks to the freeholder and the lessee who is undertaking the work.

The Social Committee AGM will be held on Thurs Feb 7th at 8pm in the village hall. The financial Report for 2018 will be presented and the election of Chair and Treasurer will be subject to a vote by the Committee. All villagers are welcome and we are always looking for new members to assist with various activities including the Fair and Dog show on Sunday 28th July 2019.
