Harvest Supper at Lurgashall Village Hall – Sunday 6 October

Harvest veg J. Lawson

The annual Harvest Supper in Lurgashall Village Hall is a great tradition in the Parish and a lovely celebration of the end of summer.

The Supper takes place at 7.30pm, immediately after the Harvest Service in the Church.

If you’d like to join the Supper, you can buy your tickets (£7.50) at the village shop.
As this is always a very popular event, best to book early for a wonderful feast in great company!

Film Night – “Fisherman’s Friends” – Wed. 2 October 2019

Fisherman's Friends poster

Lurgashall Film Nights are back with this feel-good comedy based on a true story and set in the Cornish village of Post Isaac.

A fast-living, cynical London music executive (Daniel Mays) heads to a Cornish village on a stag weekend where he’s pranked by his boss into trying to sign a group of shanty-singing fishermen (led by James Purefoy).  He becomes the ultimate ‘fish out of water’ as he tries to gain the respect of the unlikely band and their families who value friendship and community over fame and fortune.

The new Village Hall extension is completed!

logo with ext and door Jan 2019The Village Hall Management Committee is very proud to announce the completion of a new extension to Lurgashall Village Hall.

The extension houses a much-needed store room for furniture and an archive and small meeting room.

LEADER PLAQUEThe buiding of the extension was made possible by many generous local donations as well as significant funding from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, administered by the Sussex Downs and Coastal Plain L.E.A.D.E.R. Action Group.

We are immensely grateful to all our funders, to Hang Ups our builders, and to all our hirers who have borne with us through the build.

What’s on in July and August at Lurgashall Village Hall

July-Aug 2019First of all, you may notice there are no film nights in July and August. We’re taking a short break during the summer holidays, but don’t worry – *FILM NIGHT* will resume on Wed, 2nd October with a great new programme of monthly movies.

This year’s most exciting new village project has been, of course, the wonderful VILLAGE HALL EXTENSION, and if you haven’t already done so, you’ll have a great opportunity to explore inside at the *VILLAGE HALL A.G.M.* on Tuesday, July 9th at 7pm.

In the meantime, we hope your Green Fingers are busy tending your gorgeous exhibits for our 36th Annual *HORTICULTURAL CLUB SHOW* on Saturday, 17th August. Entry schedules are available from The Village Shop.


Happy Summer, everyone!

Pilates for All – July Classes at Lurgashall Village Hall

Pilates position

 

Local Pilates teacher Eliza Wheeler is running a flourishing Pilates class at Lurgashall Village Hall every Monday at 7.15pm.

July dates are: Mon. 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd & 29th July. 

Eliza says: “As a Physiotherapist I think Pilates is a wonderful form of exercise, and everyone can benefit from it in some way.  The focus is on strengthening up the ‘core’ – improving strength centrally makes the bits on the outside function better!  We also work on flexibility, balance and posture.  The benefits of regular Pilates include not only toning legs, bums and tums, but also helping to reduce and prevent back pain. 

“Ultimately, it should be fun, and I hope at the end of the class you walk out feeling refreshed and happy.”

If you would like to join the classes or have any questions, please contact Eliza on 07929 365088 or email eliza.wheeler@hotmail.co.uk .
