U2.3 Feedback

I have received this from Peter Longstaff-Tyrrel:

Having produced Polegate calendars in the part . . .
Personally Dan I would very much avoid the word 'Pride' these days due to the Brighton Pride gay day connotations!

U2.2 - Parish Pump

I have said to Maureen that the calendars will be available in November and sold in local shops, I dont know how long the calendars will last as there is only a limited number so If you nearer the time wanted to reserve a few that's ok. However If you wanted to sell them on your website I think the best way is to buy them fist because I will not be able to save any, for if and when people wanted them.

U2.2 - Parish Pump

I will certainly pass this report on to both newspapers - Eastbourne Gazette and Sussex Express. but cannot say how long it will be published, as I am at the mercy of two editors who decided what copy goes into the newspapers.

I have enclosed details of our local history society. I would be interested to sell copies of your calendars on my website - are you able to offer trade prices please?
