   Happy New Year to all our Members and Friends.

Help us celebrate on 29th January 10 years of working with the RSPB on the Great Garden Bird Watch.  See Social Diary on ‘Events’ page.

The Friends organised in 2009 the renovation of the war memorial in our park which had fallen into some disrepair.  Serenity Funeral Directors with their stonemasons restored it and we invited the Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex to attend the rededication service.  It has been an annual event in the Friends social diary ever since and we are proud that this has been adopted by the Royal Sussex Association.  We can’t thank enough the students from The Eastbourne Academy for leading the hymns in such a professional manner, the clergy and cadets who support us, the dignitaries who attend every year including the MP and this year the Mayor, and we must not forget to thank also the Lakeside Café for hosting the complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits after the ceremony and Tesco for their donations.  Our service is always 10.30am at the memorial on 11th November, unless this falls on a Sunday in which case the service is held at 3pm.
