Easter Services: at St Giles, all at 11.15 a.m., Lay Reader Liverton will take the Good Friday Service and the Easter Sunday Service Reverend Graham Attfield. Graham is full-time Chaplain at Conquest Hospital, assistant Minister at St Mary’s Church, Rye and Chaplain to the Police and Ambulance Service in Hastings.

Theft from van: sorry to hear that Robert Lyne (Percy) had his work tools stolen from his van in Levetts Lane. I do feel sometimes that people do see suspicious people around, I know it was dark, the criminal element must know about the tools in Percy’s van. Remain alert Bodiam.

Mothering Sunday Service: it was a good Mothering Sunday Service at St Giles when the Bishop of Lewes, The Right Reverend Richard Jackson took the service. It was a very memorable Mothering Sunday in so many ways.

Church decoration: If anyone would like to help with the decoration of St Giles Church on the 26th March or to make a donation for flowers please phone Sarah Peters 01580 830478. Start will be 10 a.m. on Easter Saturday.
