What a great evening was had by all who came and enjoyed the Swing Street Band featuring Jane Reeves and Matt Bell last Friday. Thank you to everyone who supported the event, the committee along with honorary members John Cook and Mike Davies all worked to create a swinging time and what a supper buffet , fantastic plentiful food for all . It was difficult to know if people would still be able to dance after it but they did, thank goodness. Hope you enjoy the photos from the evening which raised £350 for the Friends of Sedlescombe Church Heritage Trust .
