Sheep killed by dog(s) in Dallington

A farmer with land close to Dallington Forest has just informed us that a dog or dogs have killed two ewes, that a further lamb was missing and other ewes had bite marks and injuries. The whole flock has been traumatised.

The dead ewes were found yesterday [Thursday 24th May] but it isn’t known when the attack occurred – it would have been between an inspection the day before and yesterday afternoon.

A number of owners let their dogs run free in Dallington Forest and on a number of occasions this Spring have been seen running around on this piece of land. But, as the attack wasn’t witnessed, it’s not known if the dog(s) came from that direction.

Naturally, a close watch has been mounted of this flock as dogs getting a taste for sheep-killing tend to return.

Particularly at this time of the year owners need to keep their dogs under close control.

Dog owners should note that farmers are within their rights to shoot any dogs found worrying sheep.

If you are lucky enough to live within earshot of St Giles Church, you can enjoy the wonderful sounds of the bells drifting out over the village on practice nights (Mondays at 7.00pm) or when the bells are rung for services.

For everyone else here is just a small sample recorded outside the church on Monday August 17th 2009.

Dallington Amateur Dramatic Society (DADS)

Dallington Amateur Dramatic Society (DADS)

The Dallington Amateur Dramatic Society has been running for many years, putting on at least one performance a year at the Old School in The Street. For notices about recent and forthcoming productions, please click this link.

The stage was specially designed to be portable, and some clever & attractive sets have been conceived as you can see from this photograph from a recent production.

As a small society, with a membership of around 30, we have gained a good reputation over the years, drawing a supportive audience.

Most plays tend to be comedies with the occasional thriller or drama. Productions generally take place in the Autumn, though the programme may include other events open to the public.

Please call Roy Iremonger (01435 830141) if you would like further information. We need actors, non-actors, front of house, back stage – in fact anyone with an interest in drama (or who has friends and family who may be interested), so please give us a call.

Art Club

Art Club

art-club-1The Art Club meets on Monday mornings (10-12) in the Old School in The Street.

We are a sociable group with very varied levels of  experience, ability and confidence, so whether you are a complete beginner or want to develop your existing talents, do come along.

Most sessions include observational drawing and painting with tutor advice and feedback, as well as opportunities to try out different materials and techniques and short optional exercises to develop drawing skills. Everyone is encouraged to work at their own pace so if you already have your own projects, you are welcome to work on these individually while enjoying the friendly company. Tuition is free but we each contribute £3.00 per session to help cover the cost of hall hire – and we take it in turns to bring biscuits…

To find out more, please come along on a Monday or contact Pauline Ridley on 01435 830152 or email p.ridley@brighton.ac.uk
