News from the EWEs
I Dreamed a Dream…that one-day I would find a priceless antique among my worldly possessions, as did you, judging by the number of you who turned up to our ever-popular Antiques Afternoon. It was great to see Henry again; he entertained and also gave us the benefit of his vast knowledge of items of years gone by. A big thank you to the cake makers, delicious.

How much did you think you knew about Lancing Ring, but were pleasantly surprised to learn that there was more to it then we thought? Our very own expert on this subject, Adrienne, shared her knowledge of all things botanical and historical concerning the Ring. It was a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon. With beautiful photos and a well-put together talk, we all came away with a better understanding of what is on our doorstep. Thank you Adrienne

Join us Christmas Carol singing – Fri 18th Dec For various reasons we will not be doing our traditional Christmas Cheer entertainment in the hall this year and will save our resources for our big 10th birthday bash next year instead.  But to keep us feeling Christmassy, we will be going carol singing as usual and will then go back to the church hall for mulled wine and sausage rolls and a chance to chat.  We will also have an informal sing-song round the keyboard.  So if you can’t manage the carol singing outside you can still join in at the hall. Carol singers – meet at the hall at 6pm and don’t forget to bring a torch or lantern and a Christmas hat or other adornments! Everyone else!  If you would like the carol singers to call (no money changes hands – just the delight of our angelic voices!) please let Adrienne know on 753977.  Particularly if you can’t get out and about but would still like to join in the spirit of Christmas, or if you would like us to sing on your street. And if you can’t come carol singing, but want to join us for mulled wine when we get back, please be at the hall at 7.30pm Now where did we put those carol sheets…?

Mon 28th Dec – our traditional post-Christmas Red Lion visit.  Why not join us for lunch at the Red Lion in Shoreham?  Perhaps walk off some of the Christmas excesses with a long walk via Coombes and the river, or a short walk via Hoe Court, or if you don’t fancy a walk then bus, car, bike – it doesn’t matter how you get there!  Meet at 10.30 on the corner of Mill Road for the long walk, or 11.45 for the short walk.  We aim to get to the Red Lion at about 12.30 for those not walking.

Adrianne adds “On the evening after my talk on 25 Oct someone very kindly put one of the Friends of Lancing Ring renewal envelopes through my letter box.  Thank you for your money, but would you be able to let me know who you are as there was no name on the envelope?  Many thanks”

Pam Brown writes “Hi Andy I wondered if you would kindly advertise for a new member for our Book Group. We are doing well but could do with another person. We are currently reading a thriller by a new author, Eva Dolan, and next month we'll have the autobiography of Alan Bennett. Recent books have included Agatha Christie's "Seven Dials Mystery" and Scott Fitzgerald's "Great Gatsby". Meetings are first Monday of the month at 7.30pm. Many thanks, Pam 01903 753498”
