Ladies Lunch Club

Chairman and Contact: Mrs Anne Andersen 01424 842002

A Group of Ladies of the Association meet bi-monthly on the 3rd Thursday of alternate months starting in January, at the Brickwall Hotel, Sedlescombe.

We gather from 12.15pm in the bar for a drink and a chat and the chance to buy raffle tickets, and at 12.45pm go into a very pleasant dining room for our meal; main course, dessert and coffee.

At about 2.00pm, we have a Speaker who talks for ½ - ¾ hour and answers any questions, and then we draw the raffle.  Our Speakers cover a wide range of subjects; usually a couple each year are political.

Within the last 18 months we have had the following speakers:

  • 19th January (Alice Webster - Director of Nursing, E Sussex - NHS update)
  • 16th March (Christine Francis - Birth of a unique Seaside Resort)
  • 18th May (Michael Foster DL - High Sheriff of E Sussex 2016-2017 - A Year as High Sheriff)
  • 20th July (Brigadier Hugh Willing CBE - The Pirate Kings of Puntland)
  • 21st September (Edward Preston - Our Lady Writers)
  • 16th November (Stephen Chamberlain - Supporting Grassroots Community Groups across Sussex)
  • 17th January (Samuel Holmes - Understanding Dementia)
  • 21st March (Andrew Seymour - RNLI and working with Rye Harbour)
  • 16th May (Penny Jones - A day in the life of a Constituency Case Worker)

The speakers for the next three sessions are as follows:

  • 18th July (Katy Bourne - Police & Crime Commissioner)
  • 19th September (Huw Merriman MP - An update form our local MP within the world of Westminster)
  • 21st November (Sally-Ann Hart - A Magistrate's Day)

It is a very pleasant social occasion and is well supported by many regular members.

The annual cost to be a member of the Lunch Club is £10.00, to cover the expense of printing the annual programme on a card for each member, and contacting members 6 times a year to remind them of the next date and inviting them to confirm if they would like to attend. The cost of the meal is £19.00.

Please contact me if you would like to hear more or wish to join, you will be very welcome!
