Church Services: After the flurry of Christmas services, this Sunday there will be just one service in St Mary’s Church, the celebration of Holy Communion at 8am.

Winter Lunch Party: Please make your bookings in good time, while there are still some tickets left! Very good value for only £8.50, they are available from Liz Turgoose (01424 882657) or Judy Edwards (01424 882222).

Food Bank in Rye: Many other people in our district are now very grateful for this newly opened service. When you’re next shopping in Jempsons, please have a look at the collection box behind the checkout. On it you should be able to see a list of the various items which are needed at present.
