Petersfield news in brief

Egg rolling

Queen Elizabeth Country Park will host this year’s annual egg-rolling event on April 5. Eggs to roll are available from the Visitor Centre and cost £1 each.

Following huge confusion, disappointment and queues at last year’s event, the organisers wish to make it absolutely clear that egg rolls are not available from the Visitors Centre - only eggs for rolling.

Easter is relatively early this year so participants are being reminded to check that their eggs have actually been laid in time for the event. Experience shows they roll less well when they're still inside a chicken as the birds tend to get snagged on tufted grass as they tumble down the hillside.

Romance of the era before email

Max M E Cross will be giving a talk next Monday, at Liss Area Hysterical Society, entitled “The Romance of the Letter Box” explaining his sadness at the demise of the written letter in favour of electronic mail.

Anyone wishing to attend the talk must contact Mr Cross by emailing him at
