The Whistler – October 2018

Fruitfulness

We have said goodbye to the amazing Summer and now we are looking forward to an action-packed  Autumn at West Hill Hall.

We start the total refurbishment of the toilets in October. This major work is to be carried out by our two favourite apostles from Skydec, Simon and Peter. We are truly grateful for two donations that will go some way to help with the substantial costs of the work. First,  we have been given a discretionary grant of £500 from Brighton & Hove Council, arranged by local councillor, Lizzie Deane. Second, while Hall manager/administrator Colette was sourcing equipment, she asked Brightwell Dispensers in Newhaven for prices on certain items. Their answer was to donate nearly £400 worth of equipment. Amazing!

We are skipping the Christmas Social this year but have three events coming up, as well as the increasingly popular monthly Quiz, where we had a capacity house in July, and put the FUN firmly into fundraising. On Tuesday 9 October  we continue our local history talks, with Jackie  Marsh-Hobbs giving us an insight into the history of Palmeira Mansions. On Saturday 24 November a Grand Christmas Sale will be held in the Hall between 10am and 3pm, with stalls offering a mixture of craft, gifts, books and bric-a-brac. On Tuesday 11 December Roger Luther is going to help us to solve cryptic crosswords. We want to keep West Hill minds ticking over into the holiday season so come and share some early festive cheer and delve into the tricks and tips to crack any cryptic clue.

We had a phenomenal response to the Sam Toft Colour-In competition: all entries can be seen on westhillwhistler.wordpress.com.

In this edition we feature another talented local artist, Adrian Ventura. If you’d like to share your story and artwork in The Whistler, please get in touch at thewhistler1976@gmail.com

Goodbye Jim and good luck! This means that we have a rare weekday evening slot available between 5:30pm and 7:45pm on Wednesdays. Get in touch with us at westhillhall@gmail.com if you’d like to fill it.

Save the Dates

For those of you who remember the Grand Sales Pam Bean used to organise in the Hall, the last one was in 2009, the year before she died. This year, as a throw-back to those sales, WHCA is holding a Grand Christmas Sale on 24 November. Tables cost just £10, so if you’d like to book one to sell some bric-a-brac, crafty goods, or pre-loved items, do get in touch Colette and Louise at westhillhall@gmail.com to reserve a stall.

Two other dates to save in your diaries: the Autumn Local History talk on 9 October features Jackie Marsh-Hobbs giving an insight into the Grade II* listed Palmeira Mansions.

There will not be a WHCA Christmas Party this year but on 11 December an evening with Roger Luther will be dedicated to learning techniques to solve fiendish Cryptic Crosswords. Refreshments and bonhomie will be flowing to lubricate the brain cells.
