Pevensey Parish Council, jointly with local organisations and eating venues had been planning a weekend of events on 8-10 May to mark the 75th Anniversary of VE Day, which is a Bank Holiday. Unfortunately, the weekend had to be cancelled due to Covid 19 restrictions, but it is hoped to run a replica event next year from 1-3 May 2021. We also had to cancel our second Community Dog Show on 7 June.
In the meantime, the Government has issued a new suggested programme for the day, which includes a two minute silence at 11am and a speech from HM The Queen at 9pm on 8 May, followed by the Nation joining in with singing “We’ll Meet Again”. A suggestion for an afternoon tea party in your homes that day is outlined, together recipes and a competition for children, artwork and history of the WW2 and VE Day.
Many of you will have family members who will remember the War in some way, and we hope that local people will join in with the events for the day. So, maybe put up some bunting, have a stay at home WW2 tea party and open your windows to join in the singing after the Queen’s Speech at 9pm. The words of the song and full details of the day can be found at
Peter Lowton, Chairman of Pevensey Parish Council said “We were most disappointed to cancel our planned weekend of events but would like to thank all the businesses and organisations for their support in the planning. I know that this is a very difficult time for our local residents, and I want to thank everyone of all ages, for all their efforts and involvement in meeting Government requirements. I hope that we can return to running our community events next year. In the meantime the national events for the day, give us a chance to sing and maybe eat tea together, but in our homes, in addition to the clapping I am sure we all do on Thursday evenings to thank all our key workers “

EARLY PRESS RELEASE : EXHIBITOR LAUNCH
PEVENSEY DOG SHOW
Following the success of the inaugural Pevensey Dog Show in 2019, plans are in hand for the 2020 event, which will be held on 7 June at Wallsend Road Sports Ground.
This community show will provide a fun family event to residents and visitors alike, as well as providing a platform for Pevensey Parish Council to highlight the problems the villages face regarding the management of dog fouling and it hoped that the Show will help to highlight responsible dog ownership.
There will be honours to compete for in 7 classes and stall holders and charities are welcome to attend. Once again there will be entertainment and additional attractions. East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service plan their ‘Station Open Day’ on the same day and will display assets and offer demonstrations on the Show site.
Chairman of Pevensey Parish Council, Peter Lowton commented ‘the 2019 event was hugely popular and was a great day out for the family and competing pooches. Amongst the fun and entertainment was the message to reduce dog fouling in public places and this message remains valid. It was great to see so many people turn up with their pets and enjoy the day’.
Exhibitors Forms will be available for stall holders to complete and can be downloaded via Pevensey Bay Life and the Pevensey Parish Council on the above link.
