Marion Lovell, Abingworth, New England Lane, Playden

The people in Iden have rather dropped off the radar at the moment.

The invitation to view the year’s work by Richard Adams and Jane Beecham should be of interest, especially as Richard has a studio in Iden. White Cottage, Rectory Lane, Playden will be open on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th September from 11 am until 5 pm. This is an excellent opportunity to purchase directly from the artists. If you wish to contact them, the telephone number is 01797 22 55 89.

There are activities at Rye Harbour Nature Reserve for the coming week.

On Sunday 25th you could go “Pond Dipping at Castle Water.” Meet at Camber Castle at 3 pm and dip until about 4 pm.

On Tuesday 27th it is “Shrimping at Rye Harbour.” Meet at Lime Kiln Cottage at 10 am. Booking is necessary for this one, on 01797 22 77 84.

On Thursday 29th go “Pond Dipping at Castle Water” from 10 am until 12 noon.. Meet at Brede Lock, walking about 2 miles.

The 9.30 am service will be the next Summer Special Service, Eucharistic but with no hymns. It will be a quiet, contemplative service with lovely music to help you to pray and reflect upon any concerns you may have.
