NEW ART CLASS FOR CHILDREN: If you have children interested in art then this could be for them . We are on the look out for kids of all ages who may be interested in attending an after school art club at Sedlescombe Village Hall on Wednesdays from 3.45 - 6. There will be lots of different things to learn from cartoons to pottery to graffiti, and all things in-between. We are really keen to get kids and teenagers involved with getting creative but without it being like a school lesson. This is all about fun, and finding the inner Artist that every one has inside them. Classes will cost £10 per lesson, and you will be able to come and go as you like. We would really like to hear from you if you would be interested so that we know rough numbers before committing. So please get in touch with Luke on 07756327766 or email and we can follow up from there. Classes are likely to start from mid February

VILLAGE DIARY: Please note there is a new Village diary for 2015 in the village shop available for you to enter your club, organisation event dates and hopefully this will help avoid clashing village events .

IF YOU HAVE AN EVENT: coming up in the local area or would like to have a small piece, outlining your club or organisation aims, activities, membership etc. then please contact me by email to or by calling 870344. Please allow a couple of weeks notice before an event to allow for full coverage
