A once in a lifetime moment…

… be part of the Celebrate Cuckmere flotilla!

Following ten years of research and discussion, change in some form for the Cuckmere Valley is now imminent. To mark this historic moment, members of the community are being invited to take part in a dedicated exhibition – Celebrate Cuckmere. The festival will run from 10th – 19th June 2011. Events planned include art exhibitions from both amateur and professional artists, themed guided walks, talks by local historians and archaeologists, workshops for children and adults and other community events. The Coastguard cottages will also be open for the first time to the public.

On the final day, Sunday 19th June, we are organising a flotilla in the Channel at the mouth of the River Cuckmere. This will take place at high tide, 12 o’clock midday. Brighton Marina Berth Holders Association members have already expressed an interest in taking part and we would very much like to involve members of your marina too.

We feel it would be a great opportunity to participate in a community event – and show off your boats! It would be a very special way to mark the end of the festival and we hope will help generate a lot of media interest. Imagine a flotilla set against the iconic landscape of the Seven Sisters! Images and memories to treasure for a lifetime.

We would be grateful if you could pass this on to everyone you think would like to take part. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Your participation will help us make Celebrate Cuckmere a really memorable event.

Best wishes,
