Thank you: it was a busy day in Burwash last Saturday with the charity car wash, Good as New sale and of course the firework display. Each event was held by a very hard working few and all the proceeds were given to local organisations. The car wash money went to the local playing fields and we thank Troy and his men for doing thing. I hope he had lots of cars to wash. The Good as New was in aid of the new roof for the Guide hut. There was a fabulous amount of very nice items for sale and thanks to the few mums and the Guide supporters for manning the stalls. The firework display by the Burwash Bonfire society was awesome. What an amazing display lit up the sky. Well done to everyone involved with this. But a big thank you to all of you who supported these events, without you going along it wouldn’t be worth holding them.
