Sedlescombe village voice

After many months of committee meetings, planning and discussing, the Sedlescombe Fayre and Flower Show scheduled to take place this Saturday July 21 has had to be cancelled due to the condition of the sports field and field used for parking, not to mention the unpredictable summer weather.

Sedlescombe Societies’ Association would like to thank all those who had volunteered to help and take part in this special day and hope that you will once again come forward to support this village event in 2013.
