Parish assembly: what a very good parish assembly Bodiam had with good reports from the children of our Church of England primary school, Bodiam preschool, Claremont senior school, and many other groups for the village and both our East Sussex counsellor Angharad Davies and our rather district councillor Sue Prochack. District councillor Graham Brown took to his bed. I hope he is now up and running around Hurst Green. Refreshments were very good from the Castle Inn, the best we’ve had, and what about parish councillor Richard Mitchell? On the day of the assembly it was his wife’s birthday but Richard but the assembly first. Both still talk to each other I am told.

Parochial church meeting: the annual parochial church meeting the St Giles took place and I hope to have a report in due course.

Dora Churcher: Dora Churcher has died. Her main home was at Northiam but she had a home at Bodiam, Her main interest was Bodiam and she had a lot to say about the village and the church. Condolences must go to Tom, her husband who is at home at not in not in the best of health.
