West St Leonards Townswomen’s Guild

As a Guild we keep ourselves busy and enjoy our evenings together.

We have recently been entertained by Tony Harris, an ex national newspaper reporter and now part time actor. His talk was entitled Henry and Me (Henry VIII) He was Henry VIII impersonator at Hampton Court Palace for over three years. He dressed in costume and related some very lively anecdotes of Henry and his six wives. I must say we all brushed up on our knowledge of the history of that period. Sian Trevellion has given us a talk on The De La Warr Pavilion and Christine Hayward gave a very amusing account of Hop Picking in the Sussex area during the war years.

The Walking Group enjoy some local scenery with short walks and a welcome tea at the finish. Our Social Studies Group have been given a talk by John Butterworth entitled Hope Kitchen - about the homeless in Hastings. One of our members hosted a cream tea in her garden. We also have an Arts and Craft Group who have just had a stall at a Fair in the Azur with some of the items the ladies made.

We have enjoyed several theatre outings, travelled to the Whitstable Oyster Festival and The Hythe Venetian Fete. We also have enjoyed Fish and chips followed by Crazy Golf, BBQ, and a Ploughmans Supper. So ladies if you are interested do come and join us. Our next meeting will be on 11th November when Anne Chance will entertain us with ‘Petticoat Pilot’. Please note our temporary Meeting venue is Kings Hall The Ridge (due to the recent fire at St Michaels Hospice). Please contact Jackie on 01424 439554 for further information.
