This Saturday April 20, two Sedlescombe Girl Guides, Natasha and Maya, are organising a quiz night to be held at Sedlescombe Village Hall. The evening starts at 7.30pm and tickets cost £6 per person and include a jacket potato with a choice of fillings. You can make up a team of 6 maximum so why not go along and support these young people in their fundraising in aid of their trip to an international Jamboree in Belgium in the summer. Tickets are now on sale in the village shop.

The Scout movement shouldn’t be outdone, so although we have no scouts in Sedlescombe, I have heard that Westfield have vacancies in their Beaver colony and would be very happy to welcome you. If you have a son or daughter between the ages of 6 to 8 looking for fun and wanting to make new friends in the area, why not give it a try? They meet on Tuesdays during term time between 5 and 6pm. for further details please call Rose on 01424 754080 or Sue on 01424 425492

The next meeting of Sedlescombe Green WI is in the village hall on Wednesday April 24 when Mr Rhoderick Jones will speak about the History of Ashburnham Place, as always new members and visitors are very welcome to attend. The competition this month is, as always, the flower of the month, so please bring your beautiful specimens but also bring your favourite shell for all to enjoy. I’m sure most people have at least one of these items if not both so the table should be full this month. for any more details please contact Margaret on 870808.

Don’t forget there is still time to donate to the jumble sale taking place on Saturday April 27 in Sedlescombe village hall in aid of church funds. All items gratefully accepted however please do not leave your donations at the hall prior to the date of sale, instead please call 01424 870808 for collection Thank you
