After Eight Club

The After 8 Club meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the month - an opportunity for the women of Burwash Common, Burwash Weald and Burwash village to get together, share experiences, hear talks or try new things. Most meetings start just after 8.00pm and are held at The Pavilion, Burwash Common. 

Club activities are wide-ranging - recent and upcoming activities have included an Archery  'taster' session, trying out the sport of Curling, local quizzes and expert talks on Maritime Wildlife Rescue and teaching in Malawi. We have regular summer and Christmas parties for members.  

New members are always welcome - for more information contact Jan McCartney on 01435 882 117 or Claudette Neville on 01435 883 043.

May meeting highlights

The meeting featured a talk about the reclusive artist, Banksy. Jan McCartney reports:

 We had the most enlightening evening when Andrew Ashton gave a brilliant talk about Banksy the graffiti artist, to a packed house.  He made us look closely and see the intelligence, humour and skill in all his work - and why they are in such demand. He said Banksy was never rude,  never used bad language and only used scruffy walls or grubby corners on which to paint. Andrew, with his easy manner, opened our eyes wider to see the messages within. Of course, in case you are wondering, we are no nearer to finding out who Banksy is. But does it matter? Mysteries are best kept secret.”
