Bank holiday weekend. Grey skies. Nowt special at all.

September tomorrow - season of mists and all that, but the mellow fruitfulness will be poor this year. My own trees have few apples and many little bugs inside the fruit causing it to go rotten. This is all apparently yet another indication of the peculiarities of the weather.

Cranbrook Town Band will be playing at Rye College tomorrow, Saturday 1st September at 7.30 pm. Tickets are £10 to include a Ploughman’s supper. All proceeds are for Rye and District Day Centre.

The Mobile Library will call at Poppyfield on Monday from 11.30 to 11.50.

Playden Parish Council will hold the first meeting after the summer break on Thursday 6th September at 7.30 pm in the W. I. Hall. Every parishioner is welcome.

News of a free service brought to Rye. East Sussex Hearing Resource Centre is a registered charity working in partnership with Adult Social Care to provide a no - charge mobile information and advice service for deaf, deafened, and hard of hearing people living in East Sussex. The bus, which is funded by the Big Lottery, is equipped to offer demonstrations of assistive equipment and hearing screening tests (if time permits.)

The mobile unit will be visiting Rye on Thursday 27th September, and will be in Budgen’s car park from 10.30 am to 3.30 pm.

The bus is accessible to wheelchair users, and representatives from both the East Sussex Hearing Resource Centre and Adult Social Care will be available to provide individual information and advice on all aspects of hearing loss.

There will not be a meeting for Morning Prayer or Evening Prayer this week.
