Saturday 29th November – The Inn on The Park Classic Car Breakfast – table available from 9:30


Friday 19th December – The East Sussex Region of the JEC Annual Christmas Dinner is on Friday 19th December at Dean’s Place Alfriston.  A lovely venue with delightful accommodation and a superb reputation for their food for which we have negotiated a special rate for the dinner and accommodation.  We really hope that you will join us as this has been a great success over the past four years. However, if you are intending to join us please do let me know immediately as we have already sold 44 places and there are only 6 remaining.


Saturday 27th December – Classic Car Breakfast – to be confirmed


Monday 26th January 2015 – Burns Supper – this will be a completely new social event for the Region which we hope you will come along and experience, particularly if you have never been to one before - it is something to behold.  Whether you are a Robbie Burns virgin or a seasoned Burns aficionado and would like to “Toast the Lassies”, “Respond to the Laddies”, “Pipe The Haggis” or “Deliver the Immortal Memory” do let me know, there will be a place for you, I personally will be “Toasting The Haggis” and providing an insight into the meaning of this strange recitation. The evening will include a 3 course dinner and the strangest of entertainment (depending on the company gathered).  Tickets will be in the region of £20-£25 (to be confirmed) but if you would like to join us on this evening it would be most helpful if you could let me know as soon as you are able.


Saturday 31st January – Classic Car Breakfast



We look forward to seeing you all soon.


On behalf of the ESJEC Committee


Warm Regards  Neville Barker
