|Arts and crafts, games, entertainment and home-cooked specialties: proceeds went to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.|
|The annual Saint Hill Charity Fete was again a great success this year, with people from all over Sussex enjoying a day of traditional games, side shows, arts and crafts, and a broad range of entertainment for the young and the young-at-heart.|
s usual the fete was a cooperative effort, with the bulk of the supplies and ingredients for the day’s traditional feasts donated by local businesses. All proceeds, more than £1,000, were donated to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
New attractions this year included a daredevil performance by a professional stunt bike rider. For the up-coming stuntmen of tomorrow, the Bouncy Castle was a safe practice ground. The indomitable Jive Aces provided entertainment, and for those who wanted to find out about Saint Hill itself, the Manor and Castle were both open to tours.
As well as the Church of Scientology’s college, Saint Hill Castle also houses the Great Hall — a magnificent oak-panelled theatre and conference hall with seating for an audience of 500. The Great Hall is used throughout the year for Church functions and services, and is also available to other local charitable groups and organizations for their own events.
