Dear Resident

The long awaited new village sign will be unveiled on Saturday morning on the 3rd June.

We have been extremely fortunate to be honoured with the presence of the Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex who will be carrying out the unveiling!

Following a short speech, the sign will be unveiled by the Lord Lieutenant shortly after 10:00am that morning. Protocol dictates that the Lord Lieutenant should arrive last at this type of function, so I am asking that if you would like to witness this unveiling would you please arrive at 9:30 promptly. There will be NO parking spaces available as we will be gathering on the forecourt of the post office and the Lord Lieutenant will require a parking space. A small marquee may be erected should the weather be unfavourable, but this will be for dignitaries only so do please bring a brolly if it looks like rain.

The new sign will be unveiled almost in its original location. However, East Sussex Highways have asked me to move its position a little further up Battery Hill for safety reasons.

The placing of the new sign will be commemorating 100 years of the first home to be built in Fairlight and the 75th anniversary of the Fairlight Residents Association. I look forward to seeing you there and helping the FRA mark this historic chapter in Fairlight’s grand history. NOTE please do bring a camera if you are coming, and then send the shots to the editor of the FRA Magazine, Carol Sharpe as we would like to print the best ones in the next FRA Magazine!
