Bodiam Village Voice

Many people ask me do you see or know Dr C J R Lewis who for many years was a local GP and has a home in the village. Most of his time is spent on the Rye Gold Course and in his garden and shopping for food. After all this time many people have not forgotten him. I know when my mum died my sister and myself were only too glad to see Dr Lewis turn out and at that time you are glad to see a GP you know, not one at the end of a phone and you are just a number. Will we return to the days the local GP comes out to you late at night or the weekend perhaps?

Due to retirement, St Giles Church is looking for a couple of new flower arrangers. The young ladies who do the flowers in St Giles’ do not go over the top. The flowers are just right. The church is not just about flowers - phone me if you can help on 01580 830211 and I will pass your name on.

The Senlac Classic Car Show and Craft Fayre takes place, with proceeds to Rotary charities, on the Bodiam Recreation Ground with permission from Bodiam Parish Council with parish clubs on duty for all the event on June 16, start 10am to 5pm.
