ARDINGLY HISTORY SOCIETY: Annual General Meeting In Hapstead Hall on Tuesday 8th March at 7.45pm to be followed by a talk given by Mr. Roy Simmonds

Ardingly Films – 10th March:Ardingly Film’s next screening is the new James Bond film starring Daniel Craig as 007 in Spectre Tickets can be purchased for £6 from Fellows Bakers, the Ardingly Post Office, Cosy Cafe or on the door on the night. The last film night was a sell out, so buy your ticket early to avoid disappointment.

The door at Hapstead Hall will open at 7.00 pm and the film starts at 7.30 pm. Refreshments will be available before the film and during the 15 minute interval. Come along with family and friends to enjoy a local night out. Thanks to Fiona Rocks and Sarah Chapman who with many helpers run this event for the village – it has become an evening that many residents look forward to.

Commonwealth Day – 14th March: As mentioned in my last article the Parish Council are arranging an event this year to celebrate Commonwealth Day on Monday, 14th March.

The event will be held outside the British Legion and we thank them for the kind use of the flag pole for the event. The Commonwealth Flag will be raised at 10 am which we hope will be followed by words from St Peters Primary School and Ardingly College. Refreshments will be available in Hapstead Hall following the event which will bring the community together to celebrate this great family of nations, its diverse cultures and communities. The poster has been designed by children at St Peters Primary School.

Event – Ardingly College: ‘Get help to get connected’ returns for the New Year.
