Fulking photographer wins major award

Hugo Healy The Sun 9 August 2019
Attentive readers of this website will know that Hugo Healy, seen above in his garden at Oldwood, recently took a set of aerial photographs of Fulking Fair. But he is now much better known for winning the Agora Images #Aerial2019 competition and, as a result, having his work feature in both The Sun and The Mail in the last couple of days (make sure to check both links as they feature slightly different sets of photos). More of his work can be viewed on Instagram @hugohealy and you can reach him by email if you are interested in obtaining prints.

Call My Bluff

Call my bluff
You may find it interesting, when the Government is trying to call Europe’s bluff, probably most unsuccessfully, to find that you have a chance to tip the scales and enjoy a successful evening at the annual Call My Bluff wine quiz on Friday 26th July at 7:00pm in the marquee that will then be located in the North Town Field. Four white and four red wines will be presented by our old friend Toby Peirce of Quaff, the Hove wine merchants, who will be assisted by a local halfwit and a surprise highly knowledgeable presenter. At £15 head and arranged in tables of 8 contestants this will be great value with good nibbles thrown in. Places are more limited than usual in what is a smaller marquee but this should increase the sense of competitive togetherness! Fortunately a knowledge of wine is not required and, indeed, may prove a handicap!

Do not hesitate or all the places may be reserved — early booking essential to avoid disappointment. Contact Bob on 271 or by email to reserve a table.

Tiger Feet

Mud
It seems that UK Power have chewed up the footpath next to Lee Holden’s field (roughly by the 8-1F on the map above), while maintaining their installation. Walkers are warned to wear their boots or wellies for a while. Lee advises that while UK Power apologised, they also said that they wouldn’t be able to sort it out until the ground is a bit drier.

Also of local interest:
