Bobservation 27. In with the new and out with the old

Neon header for Bobservation 27

You may think the title above refers to me. No such luck I’m afraid! However, we might reflect on what a successful year 2016 was for Fulking. A very good Fair in July with the new format of including stalls in the Street working very well. A good Call My Bluff in the incredible Shepherd & Dog which must now be the most popular country pub in Sussex. The Christmas Market has become such a successful event that potential stallholders have to be turned away. This year’s Christmas Party was very well attended and seems to have been enjoyed by everyone. However, pride of place this year must go to the amazingly attractive Downland Calendar for 2017, which I understand has achieved sales of 800 copies.

Let us not forget the regular village activities that you support by organizing or attending. For example: Pigeon Post; then there is Yoga, Messy Church, Craft and Chat, Toddlers/family coffee, Book Nook, Games Evening, Carol Singing around the village, St Andrews Day Quiz, Plays and musical evenings in the Village Hall, a Beagle pack and one of the best cricket clubs in Sussex. Not bad for a village of a little over 200 residents!

So forward into 2017 and may it be a happy, successful, and healthy year for all of you. If you are not already involved in village activities, please come along and help. You will be most welcome.

Two dates for your diaries; Tuesday 24th January 2017 – Annual General Meeting of the Fulking Social Committee in the village hall at 8pm and Sunday 30th July 2017 – Annual Village Fair.
