Nick will be leaving us in October and I cannot begin to tell you how much the village and in particular the Social Committee and the Village Hall Action Group will miss him. He has been an enormous help in presenting the annual fair and quite honestly I do not see how we are going to manage without him. Leaving party in the Shepherd & Dog on Friday 4 October at 7.30pm, all welcome. Fingers crossed; he may come back soon!!
Well now! Greta Thunberg at 16 has delivered a message about how young people feel let down by politicians and by the rest of us in our disinterest in addressing climate change before the planet becomes uninhabitable. It would be good to think that as a village Fulking might take this challenge on board but it will need a very enthusiastic and imaginative leader if we are to achieve anything worthwhile. Is anyone concerned enough to offer to lead?
A perfect village wedding
It is not often that a wedding of villagers occurs here, but on September 7 Ollie Levett and Hollie Trist became Mr and Mrs Levett. The weather was perfect for a quite exceptional day. The couple looked stunning and the event was absolutely lovely and very ecologically friendly. How very lucky we were to be invited to such a memorable day. In villages like ours these occasions happen rarely and it would be nice to think that this wedding was the beginning of a new spirit of togetherness in Fulking. The newlyweds will possibly be moving to another Sussex village and that village’s gain will be our loss. Here’s wishing them a very happy and healthy married life.
The other day I received a letter saying; “I was lucky enough to have had a Sunday off to enjoy the very successful Fulking Fair. The atmosphere was perfect and my family and I spent the whole afternoon indulging ourselves in tea and cake, music and games. My brother was delighted to win £5 at the Hoopla!”
