VISIT FROM THE COMPANY OF PIKEMEN AND MUSKETEERS
12 September saw the Company of Pikemen and Musketeers, a ceremonial unit of the Honourable Artillery Company visit Hurst Castle and the Musketeer Public House at Pennington.
A Royal Warrant, granted by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 1955 authorises the Company of Pikemen & Musketeers to parade no more than 63 members at any one time, that being the size of a company in the 17th century. Below are pictures of the event.
Woodside is looking at its best and was judged by South East in Bloom. Below is a photograph of the Mayor, Cllr Michael White and Bob West (far right) receiving the award in Brighton in September.
The tennis courts have been resurfaced and plans are afoot to sort out the croquet field though there is still some research to be done.
