Parish news jokes: I’m very happy that the editor of the parish news has some jokes in hoping to provoke laughter. I liked them but to the best are: Weight Watchers will meet at 7 PM in the first Presbyterian Church. Please use the large double doors at the side entrance and don’t let worry kill you off - let the church help.
Bodiam preschool: Bodiam preschool is having a hamper raffle and would like to receive donations for the Christmas party of December 21 at 2 PM in the parish room. The phone number for the preschool is (01580) 830615.
Carol service: the service of nine lessons and carols will take place at St Giles on December 18 at 6 PM. To reward everyone for singing you’ll get mulled wine and mince pies afterwards. The guest organist will be Jackie Spriggs. The Christmas Day holy Communion is at 11:15 AM.
Waste collection: I’m sure the Bodiam has had the waste and recycling collection calendar 2017. Our normal collection day is a Wednesday but when it comes to December 28 the collection is December 29 this year. Please ensure that containers are put out of the edge of your property by 7 AM on the day of collection.
Bus times: I have the bus times for the Christmas and New Year period and as I understand it there are no 349 services on December 25, 26, of 27. There is a normal service from the 28th to the 31st. No service January 1,and second. Normal service resumed on January 3.
