Festa della Madonna del Carmine 2015

The annual Festa della Madonna del Carmine was held in Mortale last night and a good number of people were in the village to celebrate evening mass, followed by dancing and festivities in the village hall afterwards. Despite heavy rain, which cancelled the procession of the statue through the village, spirits were far from dampened as celebrations continued into the early hours.

Photos can be found in the Gallery section of this website.  A film is available in the Festas on Film section.

Iolanda Forte

We were all saddened to hear the news that Iolanda Forte from Bexhill had passed away on 22nd September.  She was a loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother, a dearly loved relative to so many family far and wide, and a much loved character in the Bexhill community.  Iolanda was the wife of the late Olimpio Forte, and daughter of the late Silviano and Alessandrina Forte, all originally from Mortale.

A funeral service is to be held at St. Mary Magdalene’s Church, Bexhill, on Thursday 8th October at 12 noon.

Condolences go to her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
