Pastfinders' 20th Anniversary Year
Since we were founded in 1996, we like to think we have made a significant contribution to the research into, and the celebration of, local history in the two villages since the earliest times.
This year is our 20th Anniversary and we are holding an Open Lancing & Sompting History Day at the Lancing Tabernacle Hall on 16 April.
