You may remember that last year a cryptic appeal for volunteers was sent out to take part in a Remembrance Sunday event. This year, with more time to plan and greater involvement from others in the town, the event will be going ahead on 12th November. This will be a torchlit procession. Each person in the procession will represent one of the people on the war memorial.
The May Fayre tombola stall needs your help – please raid your cupboards!
If you have any bottles, toiletries, toys, gifts or any items new or in good condition that you would like to donate for the Southover Bonfire Tombola please contact Louise Woollard on 07710132789 or at firstname.lastname@example.org or private message on Facebook.
Monks of St Pancras, we need 3 of you to help pull the Bell Cart for an hour in the procession at the beginning of the May Fayre, through Cliff High Street and out to the Priory (our spiritual home) approx from 10 – 11am.
Please contact Julian direct if you want to join in.

Spare Parts Concertina Band will sing and play British traditional music on concertinas and fiddle, in the Arena between the re enactments by Spears of Andred and Swords of Albion.
(In other words, someone else pulls the pints)

An Outmeeting with a difference! We will be supporting our fantastic Pentacle Drummers, who support us each year.
For those who don’t know, a Wassail is an awakening, and blessing of the apple trees, so they produce the apples to make good cider later in the year. This event has been well supported by our friends from both Eastbourne and Seaford Bonfire Societies, and there is a short torchlit procession. An excellent reason to support the Pentacles and have a bit of party, in a slow time of the year after the holidays when we’re all feeling Bonfire Season is an age away. So, Pentacle Drummers, mulled cider, procession, fire, noise and music – what’s not to like?!
Smugglers / Pagan costume only. Any ‘Green Man’ additions to your smugglers gear would be appreciated (but maybe not essential), this is a very family friendly event.

Please book your place on the bus/minibus below, there has been a lot of interest in this so get in quick! We will need to provide some torches so any volunteers welcome! (Bonny’s Wood, probably the weekend before). Depending on the level of interest, we maybe required to limit the number of people in the procession; those not able to process will be required to drink and/or cider and be merry!
