On the Sunday afternoon of August 11th, the Friends of Downlands Court, Peacehaven held their annual summer fair with support from TDC worker, Sue Sayers.
They raised enough to produce their monthly 4 page, coloured newsletter and What’s On for the coming year. This will cover the cost of printing which is kindly undertaken at cost by Peacehaven Community School, plus help towards incidentals incurred by the Editor, Mike Noble, who is the Chairperson of the Friends of group. Copies are distributed throughout the Extra Care Facility to all residents, copies are available for visitors and digital copies are circulated to those who sign up to an e-mail distribution list.
Sue explained, ‘The monthly newsletter is full of information for older people in Peacehaven, especially those who wish to join in with the activities and events at Downlands Court, Roundhay Avenue, BN10 8TG. It also provides entertainment with anecdotes and a quiz. Older people are alerted to current scams in the locality. We even produce large print versions for those with visual impairment.
We were very pleased to see so many family members of residents at this year’s fair and want to thank all our helpers who gave up their time on the day to make it a great success.’
Another thanks must go to the House Project, who funded lightweight tables and folding chairs, which made setting up the event a whole lot easier!
