Another Lent lunch takes place this Friday February 22 at 2 Forge cottages, The Green and continue on for the for the next five weeks.

This Saturday, February 23, there will be a fantastic boot sale at Sedlescombe village hall, TN33 0QN. Everyone is welcome to come along with doors open from 2 to 4pm. Refreshments will also be available though the afternoon. If you would like to be a seller rather than a buyer, although it seems the two are rarely seen apart, stalls are still available for this event at £10 per table, set up from 1pm, so if you would like to book then please contact Karen on 883550.

Sedlescombe’s Got Talent night will now be on Friday June 14, not March 1 as advertised earlier, at the village hall to showcase great local talent and beyond. This will now give even more performers a chance to take part in 2013. Talented performers are requested to come forward as soon as possible to secure their place to perform on the night. There is no entry fee so can you sing, dance, juggle, play, recite or maybe you have another surprise for us? The £100 first prize is available to the overall winner, so don’t be shy. Places are limited so please contact Anthony on 870722 or Jean on 882438 for further information. This is organised by the Friends of Sedlescombe Church Heritage Trust to benefit your local church building.

Date for your diary. Pestalozzi will be hosting an International Celebration day on Saturday March 9 from 1 to 4pm. More detailed information will follow in next week’s voice.

Is there anyone in the village who would like to take a few photos at some of the village events that take place?

Please use the contact details below if you think you would like to help.
