EASTBOURNE MP Caroline Ansell has heaped praise on Chalk Farm Hotel for its Mini fete on Saturday.

She said: “One of my favourite stops this Bank Holiday weekend, a ‘spontaneous mini fete!’ at Chalk Farm Hotel – Learning Disabilities Centre – EAPAG with lovely gifts for sale all made by the students.

They pulled this event off in just days and kept calm and carried on through the wind and rain too!

Well done to these wonderful young people and the fantastic team who support them.

They raised important funds and there’s news of their next event in June, a sponsored Pier-to-Pier walk.

Thank you all for a lovely time, and the delicious caramel brownies.”
