After 28 years working as a full time partner at the Wish Valley Surgery, which takes in Bodiam, Dr Clive Dewing will become a half time partner as of February 2014.

From March 2014 Dr Dewing will be working all day Monday and Tuesday. On Mondays he will continue to offer routine face to face consultations with patients; on Tuesday he will continue to fulfil his commitment to minor surgery all day and will not be available for routine enquiries.

Happy Birthday, for July 31, to Phyllis Landels who, as we can all see, is not in the best of health but still gets around as we all hope she will do for many years to come.

Bodiam Church of England Primary School holds a boot sale on the August bank holiday in the garden of the Castle Inn. To book or for more information, call Katie on 07940 986207 or 01580 830451.

School is out for the long summer holidays and returns on September 4. What is good is that we have more children to start the new term - but can we take more?
