The fun quiz evening held by St Bartholomew’s Church that that I reported on last week, made the amazing sum of £1,300 towards the upkeep of the Church. Well done to all those who supported the event.

The Burwash & district flower arrangement club will have their next meeting on Monday at the Burwash village hall from 2.15pm. This will take the form of their AGM followed by a workshop led by Mrs Pam Fuller. New members and visitors are always welcome.

The next walk for strollers will take place on Wednesday morning, leaving the Bear car park at 9am. This walk is intended for anyone who enjoys walking but is less strenuous than the parish footpath walk later in the month. Ijon Jenner will be pleased to lead the way, so why not go along and join him.
