Horticultural Society: This evening (Friday) offers the opportunity to hear Fergus Garret, who amongst other titles is President of Northiam Horticultural Society, speak in Northiam Village Hall at 7.30pm. He never tells us beforehand what the subject will be for his annual lecture, but it is always entertaining and informative - not to be missed.

Bonfire: Thanks to everyone for such a wonderful Bonfire once again this year! Strangely missed the sense of jeopardy provided by Storm Brian last year, but what a lovely evening it was to talk to neighbours, enjoy the spectacle, listen to the music, drink not one but two Northiam beers and thrill to fire and fireworks. We were delighted by the number of creative guys popping up all round the village and the support we received from so many people – notably Perigoes, who paid for the first aid provision (fortunately not called on). Thank you all for joining in – and for your generous donations in our charity buckets.

Harvest: Great to see the school and so many other people visiting the church over last weekend to enjoy the Harvest celebration. Thanks to all the flower arrangers for their inspiring and uplifting displays. This is such a lovely time of year, isn’t it?

Macmillan: On Friday morning, you are invited to support the Macmillan Biggest Coffee Morning. Northiam will be taking part, holding their coffee morning in the Church Centre (opposite Douglas Moloney’s) from 10-1 on Friday 28th September. I think this is a charity very close to all of our hearts, so do pop along if only for a few minutes.

Busy Busy!: What a wonderful week we have just had! The Village Hall was packed for the Fashion Show in aid of Family Support Work, and we raised over £700 for this wonderful local charity, as well as bagging some bargains for ourselves. Huge thanks to Sarah, Nicki, Margaret and Sally for getting out of their comfort zone and modelling for us.

Autumn Show: Once again, we enjoyed a fantastic Show from the Horticultural Society, and it was gratifying to see new faces entering. Most impressive was three generations of one family, all of whom won prizes – congratulations to the Noble-McNaughton family. It would be lovely to see the children’s’ classes revived - I know we all enjoyed getting our entries together as a family, but then, if these youngsters are going to win prizes in the open competition....!

Chitiwiri: Great news! The bric-a-brac sale at Forge House in aid of Chitiwiri raised over £2000! Much of this will go towards building the classroom block planned to enable more children in the community to have access to education in all weathers. Many thanks to everyone who supported this event by donating and buying, and congratulations to Sally, Richard and the team for their vision and hard work.

Badminton: Yes, it’s hot - but exercising in humid heat is the in thing to do! Anyway, there is still badminton in the Pretious Sports Hall on Friday evenings 7.30-9.30pm if you fancy a go. Fun games rather than competition standard!

Water: All my water-butts are full! Sadly that makes me a very happy bunny. It’s amazing how quickly we have changed from people who moan about the rain to enjoying standing in the drizzle with our faces to the sky! However, we are promised clear blue skies again in time for our..
