CRICKET GREATS COMING TO WIVELSFIELD On 13th October a group of 80 riders including current and past cricket players will be cycling through Wivelsfield Green on their way to London to complete a charity bike ride raising funds for the PCA Benevolent Fund and Tom Maynard Trust. The ride will include legends such as Marcus Trescothick, Steve Harmison, Geraint Jones among many others. This is the last day of a 5 day ride and takes them from Hove to the Kia Oval so you can imagine how weary they will be. In total they will have cycled 400 miles by the end of the ride and they have left the hardest day until last to really challenge them. With tired muscles they have opted for an earlier first break on the final day and that takes them past the Wivelsfield Green cricket ground, and they have asked to call in! This is a big honour for the village and we want to make them as welcome as we can. It is expected the riders will come through in 3 waves from about 8am (Note: this is earlier than originally thought, as the cyclists now have to set off earlier.) It will be a great opportunity to meet these players; have photos taken and get autographs. They are keen to raise extra funds and so there will be donation buckets around.WGCC will provide refreshments for the riders and there will also be teas / coffees, bacon rolls and cake etc, available for spectators to purchase. Please put this date in your diary and come along for the morning.Have a look at the riders’ website http://www.thepca.co.uk/big-bike-ride-2.htmlas they aim to reach their target of £150,000.
ROMAN SETTLEMENTS in the Ouse Valley. Wivelsfield Historical Society on Thursday 15th October at 8.00pm in Wivelsfield Village Hall RH17 7QG. A talk by David Rudling During the last decade much new archaeological fieldwork has taken place on Roman-period settlements in the Sussex Ouse Valley. This talk will review the results of this fieldwork alongside earlier discoveries. We will consider such aspects of the Romano-British landscape as villas (including new fieldwork at Plumpton), farmsteads, fields, roads, roadside settlements such as that recently discovered at Bridge Farm, and industrial sites including the many ironworks at the northern end of our study area. When and why did these various types of site go out of use ? Cost (including refreshments) members : £1 and non-members : £2.50 Visitors and new members are always welcome. Any questions please contact Paula Wood on 01444 271242.

“ROYAL NIGHT OUT” IN WIVELSFIELD GREEN !!! Just what more could you or anyone ask for ??? On Sunday 11th October. It is VE Day and the two young princesses Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon) and Margaret (Bel Powley) are “completely cheesed” at being locked away in a “ghastly mausoleum” (that is to say, Buckingham Palace) when the rest of Britain is celebrating. They somehow persuade daddy and mummy (a stuttering Rupert Everitt as George VI about to give his king’s speech and a clucking Emily Watson as Queen Elizabeth) to allow them out to celebrate “incognito” with the rest of the London crowds. Jarrod’s film takes a slither of an anecdote (apparently, the princesses really did join the VE Day festivities) and builds a Smiles of a Summer Night-like comedy around it. Elizabeth (an improbable beautiful Gadon, speaking in a Celia Johnson-like voice) and Margaret (Powley in fine comic form) quickly wriggle free from their chaperones, become separated from each other and have a turbulent night. Their travels take them from nightclubs to knocking shops, from the fountains of Trafalgar Square to Chelsea Barracks. Their drinks are spiked. They encounter spivs (among them the splendid Roger Allam), bus drivers, prostitutes, nightclub heavies and plenty of of leering officers who try to spike their drinks. Much of the film is concerned with Elizabeth’s blossoming relationship with the working-class airman Jack (Jack Reynor) who has gone AWOL and will be arrested if the Military Police get near him. He is staunchly republican and doesn’t think much of pampered princesses in high-healed shoes. This is a poignant and entertaining affair, with enough of a satirical edge not just to seem like an exercise in cosy British nostalgia. Gadon is exceptional as the cocooned young princess who adjusts with surprising pragmatism to life beyond the Palace gates. Film at 7.30pm Door open and Bar from 7.00pm. Homemade cakes, Magnum ices in multi flavours and drinks served before the film and during the interval. Tickets £6 in advance from the Post Office & Village Stores and The Cock In , or online via the Facebook page for Wivelsfield Films or wivelsfieldfilms.wordpress.com.
