We had a great night at Nevill last week – thanks to our hosts, our marshal Rob Phillips, our awesome outmeeting team, and to Nigel Powell for photographing – pics will be available via the website soon, in the meantime enjoy a selection of Nigel’s pics below.
INDIE night @The Swan Inn, Lewes, tomorrow 9pm – 12am
Come and dance to The Smiths, The Cure, Pulp, Blur etc and raise money for Southover Bonfire Society. Please bring your fave indie vinyl and we will play it.
Kindly hosted by Jim Painter.
Yup, more torchmaking jollies to be had on 15 and 16 October.
Come along to join in, meet fellow members and help us to prepare for an excellent Fifth.
Saturday’s torching will be between 8.30 and 11.30am at the Swan.
Also, there is the excellent Hastings out meeting later in the day, please message Simon Ingram (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you fancy food either at the Jolly Fisherman in Hastings, or past 11pm at the Kings Head, Lewes.
Sunday’s torching is 9.30 to 11.30am and the lovely membership team will be there to take renewals. Again that is all taking place at The Swan.
Bravo to the unstoppable torchmaking team today.
Saturday 9.30am to 11.30am and Sunday 9.30am to 11.30am.
No experience necessary – turn up for an hour or so if not a little longer, and help make some of the torches we will carry on The Fifth whilst getting to meet other SBS members.
For info, Saturday Torch-Making sessions at The Swan are likely to continue for a while, so that we can get ahead of ourselves rather than be left with a load of torches needing to be made at the last minute ( if weather turns against us over the coming weeks).
The lovely membership team will be there too, with the deadline looming. So, why not renew and whilst there purchase a programme. It’s all for the good of the society!
- Saturday 24th Sept, 8:30 – 11:30am at The Swan – Torch-making
- Saturday 24th Sept 9:00 – 11:30ish – Stick Notching, Johnny Marshall’s, Southover High Street (2,000 sticks to be done)
- Sunday 25th Sept 09:30 – 11:30 at The Swan – Torch-making
No experience necessary – turn up for an hour or so if not a little longer, and help make some of the torches we will carry on The Fifth whilst getting to meet other SBS members. Please note, notching only requires a few people, so if we get too many turn up at Johnny’s then Simon Monk may ask you to stroll along to The Swan and help out there instead.
For info, Saturday Torch-Making sessions at The Swan are likely to continue for a while, so that we can get ahead of ourselves rather than be left with a load of torches needing to be made at the last minute ( if weather turns against us over the next six weeks).
SBS Facebook page and Twitter feed will keep you informed.
Hope to see you at one of the sessions.
The Torch-Making team.
