POETRY & PROSE EVENING: If you haven’t already booked, and don’t want to miss this very popular annual event (in the Hall tomorrow, Saturday, 7 for 7.15pm) please ring Robert Wheeler (01797 222009) or Gary Marriott (01424 882412) as soon as possible.

SERVICES: In St Mary’s Church this Sunday morning the monthly Sung Family Eucharist starts at 9.30am, followed by refreshments, for all ages, in the Hall. On Tuesday afternoon (March 3) the monthly Messy Church starts at 4pm, also in the Hall.

MOBILE LIBRARY: Between 11.45am and 12.15pm on Wednesday (March 4) on its new 3-weekly schedule, the Mobile Library is due to be at the Hall, available to everyone. The more we use this wonderful facility, the more likely it is to survive the next round of local government spending cuts.

LENT LUNCH: At noon on Friday March 6 we are all cordially invited to Brede and Udimore Rectory (next to Brede Church) for one of a series of simple bread and cheese lunches during Lent. No set charge, but donations will be welcome.
