On Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings we have begun a pleasant habit of ordering a takeaway (with very good options) and eating together in St.John’s. This is not only cheaper for us all, it also means we stay together to talk over and thus digest some of the rich, intellectual nourishment that has been offered. People can, of course, choose to eat out if they wish.

Places to Stay: By far the nearest is the Travelodge over the road about 100 yards from St John’s, http://www.travelodge.co.uk/hotels/481/Havant-Rowlands-Castle-hotel . This is very basic, without breakfast, but this can be obtained at the Harvester next door, or people can bring their own food to St John’s kitchen. You would need to arrange morning access with Nicky or Anton. Otherwise, as stated, there are comfortable guest houses and hotels in the area which you can find online
