The funeral service for Miss Emily Hunnisett will be held at 12 midday on Wednesday 15th March in Brightling Church.

On Sunday 5th March, family and friends of Margaret Perring gathered in Mountfield Village Hall to celebrate her 107th birthday. Family members wrote their names on sticky labels and wore them before they went to see the birthday girl who then gave them a shawl or top she had made herself. Margaret had a nice big birthday cake decorated with the number 107. It sounds like everybody who went to the party had a good time including Margaret herself most importantly. Congratulations again to this special resident of Mountfield.

Twelve people dined out with the Mountfield Lunch Club on Monday 5th March. They had a nice meal at Leeford Place and enjoyed seeing the pretty decorations that were still up from a wedding at the weekend.

All Saints Church Mountfield will be closed to the public from April the 16th for approximately 4 weeks for essential repairs to the floor of the Church and services during this period are expected to be held at Netherfield Church with the possibility of one at Brightling Church.

For times and types of service please see the Netherfield Village Voice. The Churchwardens would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by this.
