VILLAGE FAIR 2015: Sedlescombe Societies Association will be holding their AGM on November 3 in Sedlescombe village hall committee room 2 at 8pm. This year 2014 it was not possible to have a village fair on the Sports field due to lack of interest in forming a committee to organise and run the event. This year we were fortunate to have a couple of events on the Green but it would be nice to see the sports field used by the whole of the community at an event next summer. Therefore if you or your village group would like to see the fair back in 2015 then please make a date to attend the meeting on November 3 at the village hall. If we all do a little then we can achieve a lot.

MINI MARKET AND COFFEE MORNING: The next mini market and coffee morning will be at Sedlescombe village hall on Thursday November 6 at 10am to 11.30am . All the usual stalls will be there plus a chance to check your weight, in confidence of course. There is no entry charge. Coffee, tea with cheese scone or buttered bun will be available for £1. This monthly event is run by St John the Baptist Parish Church and they look forward to your company on the day. Foe more details or request for transport please contact 870808.

QUIZ NIGHT: Congratulations to the winning team at the quiz night held last Friday at the village hall. It was well attended and it appeared that everyone who came along had a good evening, fish and chips were excellent and the questions certainly made your brain work!
