SW CONSTRUCTION: We will be back in sunny Mountfield by the time this column is published but at the time of writing, we are tucked away in a Devon farmhouse with not a care or road closure in sight. No news of any disasters has reached us so assume all is going well. There have been some murmurings about the state of road sign at the start of Church Road but we’ve been assured that Site Engineer, Glen, has this on his list of things to do when the landscaping team come back to tidy up after the works there.

MOUNTFIELD CLUB: Good luck to all for tonight, Friday November 18th, when Jodie and Elliott will host an Auction of Promises Charity Night with all proceeds going to Children in Need.

HARVEST FESTIVAL: A final reminder that this Sunday, November 20th, there will be a belated Harvest Festival service, following the recent closure of the church for roof work. The service starts at 10.00 am. Although there will not be the usual floral offerings round the church, it is hoped that people will donate tinned or packeted goods as all donations will go as usual to the St Nicholas Fellowship in St Leonards-on-Sea for the young people in their care.

MOUNTFIELD VILLAGE HALL BIG SCREEN SOCIAL NIGHTS: Eddie the Eagle kicks off the season next Friday, November 25th, with refreshments and plenty of time for socialising. Doors open at 7.30 pm and there is a suggested donation of £5.00 per person towards the upkeep of the hall. All welcome.

CHILDREN’S CHRISTMAS PARTY: This year’s party will take place on Saturday December 10th in the Village Hall from 4.00 till 6.00 and will be run by DNA Kids who are THE kids party specialists. Oh, and there will be a special visitor at the end of the party… The event is open to all Mountfield children of primary school age or under. As ever, the grandchildren of anyone living in the parish are welcome in return for a small contribution. Please can they email or ring 01580 882147 to book places for an event that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
