LAST Saturday’s spring supper was great fun. The meal was delicious, fresh home cooked by the committee. The Entertainment was both hilarious and enjoyable, with great music from captain ray and his side-kick the black bearded Popeye. As Ray took us on a journey across the sea Popeye, aka John Rumens, Was ‘trying’ to sail the ship. Words cannot adequately describe the fun. Thanks guys, it was hilarious. After expenses, which are still coming in it is hope to have made over £400 for repairs and refurbishing the fabric of the village hall. . Thank you to all for supporting it.

THis Thursday, there will be another game of Whist in the Burwash village hall. Games start at 7.30pm and you are all invited to attended. Age and skill are no barrier to this game, no partner is required just a joy in playing and a wish to be among congenial company. Entry is £3 per person to include a light supper.
