The postponed 20th May talk by Sir Charles Burrell of Knepp Castle Estate will now take place on 15th July at the Steyning Centre and will be given by Sir Charles’s wife, Isabella Tree. Since Steyning for Trees wishes to use the meeting as a fundraising event for Knepp this will not now be a Steyning Society talk. Enquiries about the event should be directed to SFT has, however, undertaken to honour all free tickets distributed to Steyning Society members both before and after 20th May.

Our next meeting, after the summer break, will be on 16th September.  The talk is Shops and Shopping – the small shop through the ages by Dr Janet Pennington. We look forward to seeing you there. In the meantime we wish you a safe and happy summer.
