Ferring WWII Defences

Our plans for renovating the Pill Box on Pattersons Walk are moving ahead. The Big Bale Out removed 800 litres of rainwater from the floor and the next step is to make the structure waterproof. The Pill Box was only one element in the anti-invasion measures of 1940.
Pete Coe, as well as leading the restoration, has researched the whole range of devices, deployments and installations, and has drawn on his own experience serving with the Royal Engineers, to put together a talk which will be of great interest. 
His first presentation will be to Ferring History Group members at 2.30 on Sunday 10 September, meeting in the small car park at the end of Sea Lane. To avoid overcrowding he will give a repeat presentation, for Conservation Group members on 24 September, and to others who may be interested a few weeks later. The presentations  will include an opportunity to look into the interior of the Pill Box.
We are inviting all those attending to give a donation of £3, to start off our funding for the work to be done over the next six months.
