Parish Council: The next meeting of the parish council is on January 19 at 7pm in the Parish Room. The people of Bodiam are most welcome to come and hear what the parish council gets up to. Please do not stay at home and watch Coronation Street.

Library: The mobile library will now come to Levetts Lane every three weeks from 11.15am - 11.45am. The next date is Thursday January 22.

Primary School: There is some very sad news from Bodiam Church of England Primary School. There will be no football club at the school this term. The school has been making a loss on the football club and can no longer afford to run it if they do not have enough children signed up at the beginning of term. The governing body of the primary school are seeking to appoint a self-motivated and friendly staff member to join the current team. Call the school on 01580 830342 for more information.
