Bodiam Parish Council Assembly: was very good. It was good to have a report from the little people from our Bodiam Church of England Primary School; Bodiam Pre-school group and many others. I must say a big thank you for the refreshments and small buffet. What two great Rother councillors we have in Sue Prochak and dear old Graham Browne, who will go on to great things in Rother but does need help.

Moon Walk: Tony and Lynsey Willard and Kate Water are doing the 26 mile London Moon Walk on May 14 in memory of Vera Sims, a very special lady who was a big part of Bodiam. Vera was sadly taken from us on October 9 2013 after a brave fight against cancer.
