Update

The external displays (of notable past residents now in the churchyard) and other displays in Church Lane (comparing past views of the country estate with the current scene) will be staying up for a few more days so there's still a bit more time to see them. St Margaret's church will also be open this Saturday 14th September for the 2019 Ride+Stride for churches, so why not come along!

The Exhibition was a great success and thank you to everyone who came along and to all those who helped out. Our displays inside the church, and outside in the churchyard and in the adjacent courtyard proved to be very popular.  We are grateful to those who brought along photographs that we were able to scan to add to our archive, and we would also like to thank those who allowed us to display their own personal artefacts.  Visits to the bell tower also proved to be very popular and gave visitors another fascinating insight into the history of the 13th century church.

The church café was also very busy and our thanks go to the Friends of St Margaret's for running it. Our raffle included a number of fabulous star prizes and we would like to give a special note of thanks to the Wheel Inn at Westwell for so generously donating a voucher for a delicious two-course lunch for two people.  

Once we know the profits that were made, this will be made public.  The proceeds will go to the Friends of St Margaret's and Hothfield History Society.

There is no year date for 7/8th September exhibition. It is this year, i.e. 2019? No date on the website - I live in West Sussex.

Thanks.
