Runners: Rebecca Kerry (Becky), from the village, is a member of Hastings Runners and took part in the toughest running challenge of her life in Hampshire with Maria Kibblewhite, from the village. Both Rebecca and Maria’s time was 2.22.

Fly-tipping: It is such a shame to see the increase of fly-tipping in Silverden Lane. If anyone sees anything suspicious do not confront them but try and get a registration number and, if possible, details of the van or lorry concerned. Give the details to the police and let us try to stop this very anti-social behaviour.

Minimarket: The mini-market for the St Nicholas Church tower appeal raised £1,123.23. Thank you to everyone who supported this.
