The 12th of September was the day of the annual outing for volunteers of the House Project Centre. There was much anticipation when the coach came to pick up staff from Peacehaven and Saltdean to take us to Leeds Castle in Kent. There was so much to see and do there. The gardens are stunning and home to many river birds, a Maze with a central grotto, a falconry and museums. There was a bird of prey display which was wonderful to watch. The Castle itself is very pretty and steeped in hundreds of years of history. The weather was kind and a marvellous time was had by all.
Many dogs love to visit the Saltdean shop. They are always greeted with a tickle and a stroke but of course all they are really interested in are the little dog treats! Here are just some of our lovely doggy visitors.
In June, David and Iris Watson retired after 15 years volunteering for the House Project Centre. A combined retirement and 80th birthday (for Iris) party was hosted for the hardworking couple at the Avenue Tea Rooms on Longridge Avenue. Tea and cakes were served and a good time was had by all. After a well earned break, David hopes to return in September to the Saltdean shop to begin a series of coffee mornings.
Well done David and Iris for all of your hard work.
Every Month ‘The Avenue’ hosts a quiz night and the House Project Centre likes to enter a team. This month our team of Vi, Louise, Sue and Anne came second. Great fun was had by all and we are aiming for no.1 next time!
