Bingo: What fun afternoon we all had at the latest Charity Prize bingo afternoon. There is such a great feeling of joining in amongst those who come. They help with all the preparations. during the event and with clearing up. My grateful thanks to the two gentlemen from the snooker club who so kindly put out the tables for us, I don’t know if they realise what a big help this is to us ladies, but we really do appreciate it’ Thanks to Wendy Hardy, Gill Saunders, Marjorie Axell, Wendy Woolgar for their help setting up. Big thank yo to Carly Hopkins and the other ladies who helped with checking the winning cards, to Tracy Langford with the teas, Eileen Craddock for selling the raffle tickets and all those who helped put away especially Diane King and her two young nephews and niece. The new electronic bingo machine was a big hit, it made us realise how noisy the other one had become. I am pleased to say that the 60 year old machine has not been broken up but sold on for others to have fun with. The result of another great event saw us make a profit of £279 which will be sent to Demelza. Thank you everyone who supported us by giving us so many lovely prizes and just for being there.

Music: To night it is music night at the Pavilion in Burwash Common. This means that local talented singers and musicians will have a chance to show us what they are capable of. If you have recently taken up an instrument or like singing and want to spread your wings and perform to an audience this is a great way to start. The fun begins at 8pm and the licenced bar will be open. Do go along and support these amazing artists, they would hate to perform to an empty room.

Love Burwash: Today is the day you get the chance to show how we love Burwash and take up you bucket and sponge with you shears and secateurs and join like minded people and give Burwash, Burwash Weald and Burwash Common a face lift for the summer. You will all be given a piece of the area to cut back brambles and edges, clean signs and make note of items in need of repair. If you haven’t registered your interest do so today then go along tomorrow morning. It was very noticeable that everyone had done a great job after the last Love Burwash day. Contact the Burwash Parish Council if interested.
