PARISH COUNCIL: Cllr Graham Peters took the meeting as the vice-chairman was unable to attend. Graham, your day will come when you may be the chairman of the best parish council in East Sussex.

TRIBUTE: A very good tribute went round the village to our vicar Gordon, who died on June 12. It was in the form of a very small book and contained Ecclesiastes 3, 1-14 - ‘To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heavens’ What was the purpose of Gordon to die? He is now at peace. We will remember Gordon. He is sorely missed.
