Oct 2019 - Your Help Needed - Volunteer as a Festival Maker

There is a real chance that the 2020 Festival is at risk and could be cancelled. The 2019 Festival had 86 events, all organised by volunteers. The events raised over £15,000, all donated to local charities. The 2020 Festival could be cancelled, due to the lack of volunteers.

Every year the fantastic East Preston Festival gets bigger and better, but to make sure we keep all of the events everyone enjoys, the committee urgently needs more help. If you can spare some time, they would love to hear from you! Visit https://www.eastprestonfestival.org.uk/volunteer

Changes to this website

Website and Admin changes (16 Oct 2019)

You will have noticed several changes (things removed, mainly) to this website in the past few months. This website was developed and is being run for the village by Graham and Liz Street. We lived in, and contributed to, the village for 40 years – but have now moved away from the area. We’ve removed some underused or outdated areas of this site and will continue to do so. Eventually we will donate the ‘eastprestonvillage’ domain names to the Parish Council to use as they wish for the village in the future.

No more events, organisations or businesses on this site (Oct 2019)

As of October 2019, we no longer list East Preston businesses on this website. The listings held on this site were getting outdated, new submissions were not forthcoming and there are two other websites now offering better and more up to date information, You can get local business and trader information from the All About Magazines website or from the East Preston Business Community website. Please visit the BUSINESSES page for more information.

As of July 2019, we no longer list the East Preston events on this website. All events are now on the All About Magazines website, and you can add your event to that website. See the EVENTS page for more information. We also no longer list the East Preston organisations on this website. Organisations can be added to the the All About Magazines website. Please visit the ORGANISATIONS page for more information.

The ‘All About’ website (www.allaboutmagazines.co.uk) shows events for Angmering, East Preston, Ferring, Rustington and Littlehampton – and has a wide audience. So, your event or organisation will get additional advertising by being listed there. 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 thousands of local homes.

Village news no longer on this site (Oct 2019)

The amount of news contributed to this site by village residents dropped to very low levels. Around the beginning of Oct 2019, the last item submitted was 6 months ago. Rather than show old and out of date news, we’ve decided to close the news page. We will still post any items of interest on this home page, if you contact us. Latest village news is regularly published by the Parish Council and this is where you can get onto their mailing list.
