Positive comment has come to us with regard to the Parish Council Information Day, held at St.Wilfrid’s church hall and the Pevensey Bay Baptist church, on Saturday 28 April. As a senor citizen neighbour put things to us today, summing up the circumstances in a nutshell on such a horrible day, “Chrissie Wood will be down at the Ethel Wood Centre today, feeding her 35,000″—Bay Life 30 April, 2018

The stand made for us all: Just to say thank you on behalf of Pevensey Parish Counci

Commenting on the success of the day yesterday, key organiser, ShirleyMackinnon, who is also a go-ahead parish councillor, said, “just to say thank you on behalf of Pevensey Parish Council to those who attended our Information Day yesterday. We think it went well”.

Forward planning is always part of the plan with the Day, which has proved to be of interest to both residents and visitors. Already Shirley has provided us with the date for next year.  Unprompted, she offered the thought “27 April 2019, so please put that in your diary… ”

The Day is an opportunity for all the voluntary groups locally to get together to share the work that they have done over the over the year.

The Pevensey Bay Journal, the independent newspaper for the locality, commented in the latest edition, prior to the event, “a record, documented by the Parish Pump, now serving this community for 50 glorious years, explains that in 1982, a study identified over 200 organisations in the community serving local people”

“Festivals, meals on minibus driven wheels, arts, history and always the excitement of seeing organisations as they set up and explain what they have been doing all year with their activities”.

“Fabulous collection of stands, people and activity and, without question, an event not to be missed”.

The Big Day, now approaching a seventh year, is a tribute to all the organisations involved and a clear demonstration of the value, range and depth of volunteer work here in the locality.

“Every year Pevensey Parish Council organises an Information Day at which the stand is made for us all, every year the Information Day gets bigger and better because of the quality of the organisations”.—Bay Life, 16 March 2018
