n The Burwash Brownies and Guides will be celebrating Thinking Day this week. At their meeting nearest to the date, February 22, this date was chosen as it was the birthday of both himself and his wife Olave. At their Thinking Day event Burwash will remember Guides and Brownies from around the world among it’s activities. In March they will have one of their popular jumble sales, so now is the time to start having a clear out.

n The Burwash Village Hall will have their AGM soon and are looking for either a chairperson or treasurer. Our present chairlady is holding down both jobs, admirably, but we need to divide the two jobs. We have a great, hard working committee who would be delighted to welcome you onboard. Please call Shirley Viney on 01435 882597 if you are interested in either position or to find out what either one entails.
