ANNUAL JUMBLE SALE: We all seem to have too much in our cupboards and drawers so now is the perfect opportunity for a declutter. The annual jumble sale will take place in the village hall on Saturday October 20 , doors open to buyers 11.30 am. Jumble to sell and helpers on the day are both needed and wanted, if YOU can help with either please contact the numbers given. For collection please give a call on 01424 870808 or 870688 or please bring to the hall after 9am on the morning of the sale. This is one of the main fundraisers in the year for the church, please show your support. It does seems a win, win situation, you have a more organised, tidier life and the church have extra funds.

ST JOHN THE BAPTIST PARISH CHURCH: Margaret writes “Thanks to everyone for supporting the recent coffee morning, it was a busy happy morning helping to raise £126 for church funds”

SEDLESCOMBE SCHOOL PTA: The School PTA have taken on the mammoth task of trying to raise £50,000 to have the sports area resurfaced.
