Our villages can offer so much choice when it comes to getting out and about and meeting people. From lunch clubs to gardening, from art to model railways and indoor bowls to dancing, there is such a diverse choice that you are sure to find something that suits you.
There are 6 halls that play host and Pevensey Bay Baptist Church also welcomes groups to meet within its walls.
If you are new to the villages you will be welcomed when you walk through the door to find out about and maybe join your chosen group. Some meet weekly while others come together monthly. There is always something going on, somewhere to make new friends.
The villages pride themselves in retaining the old tradition of keeping community spirit up and running, and now, as we find ourselves well into the 21st century, PVP are looking to enhance what we already have, and help provide even more activities and events to entice people out of their houses.
On this page you will find featured clubs. To see a list of clubs and groups available, when and where they meet, and their contact number or email please click here……. Go on be a devil and try something new !

Voices choir is just about to celebrate it’s third birthday. With membership now standing at around 120 over three choirs, this is still the friendliest choir around!
When folks join Voices, they do not have to audition, be able to read music or have any previous experience of singing. The only thing that matters is that you ENJOY singing.
The choir have won the Eastbourne Herald “Best Community Group” award, and can be frequently seen and heard around Pevensey Bay and Eastbourne singing to raise money for good causes. They have raised many thousands of pounds in support of such worthy causes as Macmillan Nurses, RNLI. Eastbourne, Chestnut Tree House, The Salvation Army, and many more. This term’s beneficiary will be Guide Dogs For The Blind…the choir itself votes for the chosen charity each term.
Two major concerts are held each year – the venue currently being The Royal Hippodrome Theatre, Eastbourne. The Summer Spectacular will be on 26th June at 7 pm.
The choir have performed at The Winter Gardens, The Bandstand, the Italian Gardens , on Western Lawns, the Arndale Centre, in various halls, but more unusually, in a shop window, and on the back of a lorry!
Voices have been chosen to accompany the Brit Award winners BLAKE in July, and will be opening the second half of the show with their beautiful rendition of The Rose.
New members are always welcome, and the new term will begin on 22nd July at Pevensey Bay Baptist Church (sessions either at 12.30-2.00 or 7-9 ), There are also choir meetings on Wednesdays at Christ The King Church, Eastbourne 7-9 pm.
choir director Diana Terry FRSA can be contacted on 01323 766994
Stone Cross Royals started on 21st of July 2012 with just 4 kids and now has mixed teams of boys and girls at Under 5s (Foundation), Under 6’s (Year 1), Under 7’s (Year 2), Under 8’s (year 3), Under 9’s (year 4), & Under 10’s (year 5)
We are playing our games at Stone Cross Nurseries, Dittons Road in Stone Cross, Eastbourne where we have access to 2 pitches, The Cafe & of course the parents can also shop at the Garden Centre.
We want to make this club a family club where parents can come along and get involved. we will be holding feedback forums four times throughout the season where parents will have their chance to put their views across in relation to the direction of the club, what we are doing well and what we can improve on. Parents will also have a copy of the accounts on a quarterly basis so that you can see how the club is operating.
So that we bond not only on the field but off it we will be looking at holding events throughout the season. These will include quiz nights, race nights, a presentation night at the end of the season which will include a disco. We will also be looking at having fun days out for the Children including going to watch football matches, days out to help build the family club that we want to bring to the local community.
We believe we will be a unique set up compared to other teams in Sussex as we are all about bringing the local community together and getting the parents and boys/girls to feel very much part of the club and our long term aim is to grow the club and have teams from Under 6s to Under 16s within the next five years.
Our long term aim is to eventually get some land and apply for funding so that we can develop the site by having some all-weather pitches along with grass pitches & a club house with a hall.
The idea here is that we can then push these facilities out during the day to local schools in the area providing them with the latest facilities in the community; we can also then hire the hall out to other groups during the day and evening for example, Dance Classes, Karate, Weight Loss Groups & Parties.
In the evening we can then hire out the all-weather pitches the idea here is that we are then not only providing the local Schools but also the local communities.
Any profits over and above the on-going maintenance of the grounds etc would then be pushed back out to local schools & charities to help them in the future.
This model is a win, win for all and there is no reason if successful why this model could not be rolled out across other towns/communities.
