Church: The next service at St Giles is the family service at 11.15am on Sunday march 1 and will be taken by Gordon the Vicar.

Do please phone Gordon with any questions about baptisms, weddings or other matters.

The Rectory phone number is 01580 830268. If there is no-one to take the call you will get a response to any message within a few hours.

Hop Lunch: The Guinness Hop Farms Lunch takes place at the Castle Inn on March 5 at 12.45pm. The pub is very easy to find as it is right opposite Bodiam Castle.

I hope all have an enjoyable time and catch up with old colleagues.

Rent increase: Amicus Horizon is to put up rent at Levetts Lane and when you read the service and personal charges and the grounds maintenance fee, the residents of Amicus Horizon pay for the grass cutting in Levetts Lane, but residents who have their own home do not. Is this fair?

Conservatives: Huw Merriman, the recently selected Conservative prospective parliamentary candidate for Bexhill and Battle, is at Sedlescombe Village Hall on Saturday February 28 from 11am - 12.30pm

Bodiam residents are invited to go along and enjoy a chat over a cup of tea or coffee,
