COVID 19 SAFEGUARDING

  • COVID infection rates remain high and until the last remaining lockdown restrictions have been lifted it is still important that we continue to take steps to protect ourselves and others.
  • To this end we will be arranging full ventilation in the church hall and sanitising touch areas and we require members to comply with the following measures:
  • Only attend if you have had been doubly vaccinated against Covid.
  • Do not attend the meeting if you have had a recent positive Covid test or are having to self isolate
  • You must use the hand sanitizer when entering.
  • You must ensure that your name is recorded on the Attendance sheet so that we can comply with contact tracing measures.

About the Exploring Sussex interest group

  • This is a large, very friendly, and popular group, normally meeting at 1:30 for 2:00pm on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month in St Swithen’s Church Hall.
  • We are interested in exploring a wide variety of topics associated with the County, with talks and visits as diverse as aspects of local history in and around East Grinstead (including behind the scenes preparations for WW2) to a visit to Newhaven Fort and museum to see evidence of preparations for defence in earlier times.
  • We have had talks and tours around Sussex villages with supporting in-house talks before our visits where possible. In fact should a person suggest a particular interest, they are signed up as a speaker at once!
  • On the social side, we finish our meetings with a cup of tea accompanied with lots of chat. At the turn of the year we have a New Year’s party with fun and games and we always finish the year with a garden party.

Our next meetingg on 7th June will be "Knowle House and a £20M project" given by Gilly Halcrow
Group leader Shirley King, Webpage administrator Edwin Cowley.

Unless stated differently, all Meetings are 1:30pm for 1:45pm until 3:30pm in St Swithen's Church Hall.
