Netherfield CE Primary School summer fair takes place on Saturday May 18 from 12.30 - 3.30pm. We have a great selection of stalls including face painting, an obstacle race, welly wanging, cream teas, a barbecue and plants (tomatoes, cucumbers, chillies, courgettes, raspberries, french beans etc). We also have some exciting live acts lined up including Dende Nation, which is an infectious Afro-Brazilian Samba Reggae style drumming band, a demonstration by Westerleigh Judo and students from Stagecoach will also be performing.

Netherfield Church – This Sunday May 12 is a Holy Communion at Brightling with the following week at Mountfield and the final service for May at Netherfield. All services commence at 10am.

A last minute reminder that we are holding our quiz in the church tonight, Friday May 10 starting at 7pm. Ideally, teams of four, costing £7.50 per person to include a bangers and mash supper. Please ring 01424 774233 to book your team in as without a booking there is a chance no supper will be available! We look forward to seeing you there and would be grateful for the support in helping raise church funds. Paul Smith, Churchwarden.

Ladies of Netherfield - Did you know that there are bra recycling facilities in Battle? We are collecting unwanted bras, washed but in any condition for good causes. The bras are sent out to Africa where women have increased status and less likely to be abused if they are wearing one. Through this brilliant scheme, we are also able to support Breast Cancer Research and local walking and cycling projects. There are collection points in Knickknicks, in Old Ladies Court and in the Post Office, both in Battle. Please join in and tell your friends. So, when you come to Battle remember your unwanted bras. Thank you. Sue Burton, Chair - 1066 Cycle Club, Sustrans Volunteer Group Coordinator - Hastings and Rother. Telephone - 01424 775592. Mobile - 07952 166819 www.1066cycleclub.org.uk
