Mary Hitchins, 2 The Old Hop Gardens

A number of residents have expressed an interest in starting Short Mat Bowls sessions at the hall during the winter months. At present the equipment for this is not available and before any commitment to purchasing it can be made it would be helpful to know what the level of support for it might be.

If you live in Peasmarsh, Beckley, Northiam, Iden, Playden, Rye, Winchelsea or the surrounding area and are interested in Short Mat Bowls sessions on a regular basis at Peasmarsh Memorial Hall please contact David Pankhurst on 01797 230205 or email

Only a week now until the Christmas Fair at the Memorial hall - it will be great to be able to hold this event in our newly refurbished hall, if you haven’t been along to see it yet then do take this opportunity to do so! There will be lots of stalls selling all sorts of things from Christmas decorations to cakes and sweets, Avon, jewellery, gift ideas; a grotto for the children, Christmas carols from the local WI choir - everything you need to get you into the Christmas spirit (including mulled wine and mince pies!)

Next week is your last chance to book your Christmas Lunch at the Memorial Hall on Monday, December 16. Bookings and payment must reach Jenny Als (230324 or 07789 420841) by December 5 at the latest. The menu is on display at the hall and on the village notice board. The lunch group is growing, why not join them for the Christmas lunch or when the new term starts again after Christmas.

Services this Sunday at Peasmarsh church will be Holy Eucharist at 10am and Evensong at 3pm.
