Please do not forget all the recycling units and the textile banks at Levetts Lane all operate 7 days a week and the Bodiam Secondhand Bookshop at Bodiam Castle. All the income from the shop will be used to fund the pond rejuvenation project. Most of the time it is run by the wife of the number three at Bodiam Castle, Alan Batter. It is very much a team at Bodiam Castle.
