The Society normally meets at 7:30pm for 8:00pm start at the Crowborough Community Centre, Pine Grove on the first Tuesday of each month for lectures and discussion. The next meeting is on 1st Nov 2016 when the subject is
A View from the Tower: Edward Sackville-West at Knole
by Emma Slocombe

Emma is back to talk about one of the projects she is responsible for, as a Curator at the NT, based at Scotney Castle.


In addition to the regular monthy meetings there are two (now one) additional events
  • The visit to Lewes Town Hall to have tea with the Mayor of Lewes, Graham Mayhew has been cancelled for Monday 19th September, owing to lack of numbers. We will now go in March after more people have been made aware of the visit.
  • Instead of the Crowborough and District Society Ashdown Forest Walk being on 24th September, it is now going to be on Saturday 1st October 2016. We will meet at Ellisonís Ponds Car Park (opposite the Hollies Car Park), on the road across to Nutley. It will be about four miles, walking to Nutley Windmill, then across the forest, past the Airmenís Grave to Fairwarp for lunch. We will return after that to the Car Park, a different way (shorter!). I will be there whatever the weather. Rain is fine, as long as you have sensible clothing but torrential rain, hail or gales might make us reconsider! Looking forward to seeing you then. Jenny Scott
