This year Peasmarsh Christmas Community Bazaar will take place at the Pavilion at the Maltings from 2pm to 4pm on Sunday December 9. This will be your chance to buy cards, cakes and other seasonal goodies, jewellery, table decorations and gifts, enjoy mulled wine and mince pies, tea and coffee - and support local charities like the Memorial Hall and The Oliver Curd Trust at the same time. Come and join in the fun.

There was a splendid response to the Toy Service held in our sister church at Beckley last Sunday with children bringing a marvellous collection of toys which will go to the children’s hospice, Demelza House.

Please come along and join Peasmarsh and District WI Choir for carols at Christmas in Rye Methodist Church at 7.30 pm on Thursday 13th December. There will be light refreshments and the collection will be in aid of Rye Memorial Hospital.
