The Playspace: at the Maltings, Peasmarsh, has now been replaced and improved, and is already being enjoyed by the younger children and by the “ young at heart” who have been trying out the adult exercise equipment. There will be a formal “Opening Party” later in the year but in the meantime please use it, enjoy it, respect it (put your litter in the bin) and be grateful to all those who have worked hard to make it happen.

Jempson’s 2018 Bank Holiday Charity Boot Fairs: All the money that is raised from the sale of the pitches is donated to local charities. Last year’s events raised over £1,700 for local good causes, but pitch sales depend on the number of Booters attending and, naturally, Jempson’s would like to attract more! The first one of these this year will be on Monday 2nd April – 7.00 am to 2.00 pm Hard-standing pitch from £5 (donated to Rye Bonfire Society). Gates open at 7.00 am. Free admission and parking for visitors.

Families with children, however small, will always receive a friendly welcome at any of our 10.00 am services.
