The monthly talk will be on Thursday February 14 at 7:30pm at East Street Museum – “The Master Masons” by Imogen Corrigan. A welcome return by Imogen who will tell us about the people who built the cathedrals and churches like ours! Entrance and £3 members £4 guests which includes light refreshments.

During half term on Monday February 18, a craft afternoon for children and adults will be held at East Street Museum in association with the RNLI Rye Harbour Pebble Project.

There will be a free drop-in session between 2pm and 4pm, when help and materials will be provided to paint a pebble with a nautical theme. This is a community venture and any financial donations will be appreciated.
