THIS WEEK First taster event for Pevensey Food and Drink Festival

COMMUNITY WISH YOU WERE HERE: A bike shop, arts shop and now a florist

LETTERS Mint House: Village has a vibrant art scene, but few opportunities to display work

I was interested in the article about events being planned around this event next year.

On a food theme I wondered if you would consider any poetry? With a food theme and also linked to its timing with VE day commemorations with rationing.

I am a writer and poet who has just moved to the area from Nottingham (where I was involved with the UNESCO City of Literature creative team) and am also a member of Eastbourne Poetry Cafe.

Often poetry evenings are held in bars/cafes etc and with a food theme it would be a great idea for new verses – or perhaps a local competition for food themed poems?

Anyway I will keep an eye out for forthcoming events from you

Best wishes
