THE Burwash Not So Young Club will have their garden party this week, at the home of Shirley Viney from 2.30pm. Shirley’s lovely garden makes a good back drop for these events and her home is large enough to accommodate should the weather be bad. All members are welcome to attend.

THERE are still a few pitches available to anyone who would like to raise funds for their club or charity at the burwash summer fair on August Bank Holiday Monday, 27th. Steve Mintram tells me that one or two regulars are unable to make it and he is happy to hear from anyone who is interested. Call him on Burwash 882444 for more details and prices. This is always a well supported event with people coming back year after year from many a distant place.
