PURE Autumn Art Fair 2018


The Prestigious PURE Autumn Art Fair returns to the PowderMills Hotel, Battle, East Sussex between the 6 and 14 October and bearing in mind 2018 marks 100 years since the Representation of the People Act gave some women in Britain the right to vote for the first time, this years exhibitors have been selected by an all female panel of judges.

The PURE Autumn Art Fair is a selected art fair showcasing the brightest upcoming and more established talent from an international open entry. Curated by Lesley Samms, it features the work of approximately fifty artists working across all fine art media including painting, drawing, printmaking, digital art, photography, sculpture, ceramics and glass.

The PowderMills Hotel provides a stunning setting for the fair, nestling in some 150 acres of beautiful parklands, woods and large lakes, just outside the historic town of Battle, adjoining the famous Battlefield of 1066.

The Art Fair is open everyday between 11am and 6pm and 2018 exhibitors include well-known artists such as Simone Riley, current chair of Chalk Gallery, Lewes; Dani Humberstone current Vice President of the Society of Women Artists; Society of Graphic Fine Art artists Louisa Crispin, Vincent Matthews and guest artists Patsy Whiting, Libbi Gooch and Cliff Howe.

Open daily 11am-6pm

Sadly there have been reports of vandalism and anti-social behaviour lately.  New equipment at the Cricket Club ground and Football Club buildings on the Parish Field have been targeted, Litter has been everywhere but the litter bin on the recreation ground, and worryingly there is evidence of substance abuse left there. Please make sure you know what your children are up to.  These incidents are all in areas where the community has funded projects for youngsters - don't let a few spoil things for the vast majority.

Please report any incidents to the Police. Click here for details.

Due to the hot weather it has not been practical to paint the top coat of red on it but this will be done as soon as it cools down.

Dear Resident,

As you may be aware the Parish Council now owns the phone box on Churchfield and following a survey of parishioners it will shortly become the village museum. To this end, we are carrying out some works to improve the phone box. This will start on Wednesday 4th July (weather permitting) when it will be sandblasted and primed ready to be repainted. The work will start at approximately 09:00 and be finished around 16:00.

If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind Regards

Tim Hills

Westfield Parish Councillor
