Adding East Preston events to this site

A reminder that this website and ‘All About’ are linked together, for displaying events. If you add your village event it gets listed on both the East Preston Village website and the All About Magazines website.

The ‘All About’ website also shows events for Angmering, Ferring, Rustington and Littlehampton and has a wide audience. So, your event will get additional advertising by being on both websites.

If you add your event far enough in advance (usually a couple of months), it will also get listed in the ‘All About’ magazines that are currently distributed to 24,000 homes.

2018 Festival Update

If you missed the Carnival in June, there’s a video on the FESTIVAL page. You’ll also find the winning three photos from the Photo Competition. Some photo albums are now being added to the East Preston Festival Flickr account and there’s a Festival Update to read too.

Pete Field's Funeral

Many of you would have known Pete Field from Hedger’s in the middle of the village. You can read more here, and there is a nice tribute to him on the Littlehampton Gazette website. Pete’s funeral will be on Wednesday, 4th April at midday at St Mary the Virgin church in Station Road. All are welcome but the family requests family-only flowers.

Hazel Tester

It is with great sadness we announce the death of the East Preston Parish Council’s Vice-Chairman, Hazel Tester. Please visit the NEWS page for more information.

Pictures of St Mary the Virgin Church

We got this message from a past resident (Richard Knisely-Marpole) of East Preston …

Born and raised in EP, I now live in Derbyshire. During a visit to EP a couple of years ago, I took the time to look round some of the places from my life there. One building that I had never really noticed was the church, but during my visit I was pleased to be able to photograph it. The images can be seen here

How can you help?

We know there are businesses and organisations in the village that are missing from our ORGANISATIONS and BUSINESSES pages and we often hear about EVENTS too late. Please add yourself and any events to the East Preston Village website.

This is as much your website as it is ours - so please get involved and help us to continue keeping the content fresh. If you'd like more information, find out why we created the East Preston website.

We look forward to your support and contributions
