June 2022

A visit to Filching Manor on Sunday 12th June preceded by lunch at the Berwick Inn, Berwick at noon is being arranged by John Loveridge.

For lunch at Berwick Inn, ( Station Road, Berwick BN26 7SZ;) we need to be seated at 12.00 in the dining area which is off the bar area – please buy drinks before being seated. There will be a limited fixed-price two course menu choice, details of which will follow. There is a large car park at the pub.

Visit to Filching Manor Motor Museum, [Jevington Road, Jevington BN26 5QA (between Polegate and Jevington)]  will  commence at 14.00. The  entry fee is £10 per person and tea or coffee after the visit for an additional fee (tba).  Allow two hours for the visit which includes a talk on the history of Filching Manor.

Park on the driveway in front of the house. The contents of this Museum are eclectic! Note that visits to this Museum are only for groups and by appointment.

Should any member prefer, it is possible to visit the pub only or the Museum only . Whether members choose to visit just one location or both, I will need to know numbers in advance and we will have to select and advise our lunch menu choices in advance. The menu will be circulated in due course.

Langham Hotel, Eastbourne Sussex

Dear Members

Karen and I have attended many lunches at this hotel and have always enjoyed these sold out events. We would like to organise tables for our Morgan group to attend one of these lunches. However, we need to to get a very good feel from members if this event would be attractive and the numbers who might attend.
The event will cost £30 per head and includes a high quality three course meal with reception drink (private area) and includes wine, coffee / tea with the meal. There is always a guest speaker and for this occasion the topic will be “Reminiscences of a Royal Bodyguard”.
Private parking would be included in a secure environment within the price.
Members could enjoy a walk before or after lunch as the hotel is situated on the seafront.
We have been allocated 30 places out of about 100 people attending and both  lunch events that week with the same speaker are now fully booked if we take our allocation.
We need to be sure we can use our allocation and the cost has to be paid about a month before the event. If there isn’t sufficient interest then we will not proceed and release our allocation back to the hotel which will be taken up very quickly by others. Could you please respond by Monday 22nd November to jeffrey_deere@hotmail.co.uk
Regards
Jeff and Karen

Morlands Farm, Henfield

David and Marilyn are arranging a visit to Sussex Prairie Gardens ( sussexprairies.co.uk) near Henfield on the 14th August. This is an 8 acre colourful garden planted and maintained by Paul and Pauline McBride which we have visited before and which is described by Gardeners World Magazine as ” Huge borders are woven with swathes of swaying grasses and perennials” It is a photographers paradise and the range of prairie plants is constantly changing.  Our visit will coincide with one of their events – the Indian Bazaar Summer Market. There will be food available to buy and a special vegetarian curry on offer which will need to be booked in advance. Last time we were allowed to park the Morgans on the grass amongst the flowers but this will depend on the weather. More details nearer the time.
