We are hoping that before too long we can start work filming for BREMF@home. We are keen to use a variety of interesting locations in and around Sussex but will be working on a very tight budget. Can you help us? If you, or someone you know, owns or has access to any of the following types of buildings, rooms or places, and would be prepared to let us use them for a day once it is safe to do so (preferably free of charge beyond expenses), we would be very grateful. In some cases it might be a case of knowing about a rather wonderful place with free access:
- A field with old breeds of sheep
- A traditional rural cottage garden
- A flowing stream
- A wildflower meadow
- An old rustic barn
- A traditional farmyard
- An elegant period drawing room
(possibly with mulled wine and mince pies)

At about 2pm on Sunday 28th July I stood in the middle of the North Town Field and realised that the Fulking Social Committee together with Allsorts Dog Rescue and quite a few helpers had created as near to a perfect village fair as you will find.
Perfect weather, exotic dancing, lovely dog show, a great selection of stalls, tombola and model steam engine, really enjoyable teas and food, exciting tug of war, fun kids games, wonderful music and a highly professional bar were all enjoyed by the many visitors. It was truly memorable.
Too early to announce the financial details but sufficient evidence to tell you that it was profitable and improves our reserves for village hall and North Town Field requirements. And I nearly forgot! Call my Bluff on the Friday was just as successful.
What a wonderful Fulking weekend! It will be quite a challenge to follow this up with a repeat performance next year.
