Sedlescombe school PTA hosted a very successful Autumn Ball at the Brickwall hotel last weekend. The meal and service was up to the usual high Brickwall standard, this was followed by some lively dancing by those attending. Everyone appeared to have a great time whilst raising funds towards the I.T needs of the school. Well Done to the organising committee and everyone involved.
