BACKA QUACKA: Because Tillingham and Brede river levels have now dropped again, the annual duck race has been postponed to a later date, to be advertised in this column as soon as it’s known.

UDIMORE CHRISTMAS FAYRE: Tomorrow (Saturday) do be sure to look in at the Hall anytime between 10.30am and 12.30pm (the earlier the better, while there’s still plenty on the stalls). Attractions include real reindeer, Father Christmas (and other fun for children), mulled wine and mince pies, Christmas cakes, puddings and preserves, tombola and big raffles. A great place for some Christmas shopping too: treasures on the Vintage and Valuables stall, gardening kneelers and warm woollen hats, to mention just a few. All this for the price of a £1 lucky entry ticket! Hoping to see lots of you there: it’s a great social occasion too.

BREDE CHRISTMAS CONCERT: As part of this weekend’s Christmas Tree Festival, at 7.45pm tomorrow (Saturday) JAVA-JAM will be performing another of their programmes of Christmas Melodies and Music in St George’s Church. Tickets cost £10.50, to include a cheese and wine supper.

UDIMORE CHURCH SERVICE: For the 9.30am Sung Family Eucharist in St Mary’s on Sunday you’re asked to bring with you a copy of the Bible. The service will be followed by refreshments. All welcome!

MESSY CHURCH will be in the Hall at 4pm on Tuesday, December 6.

CHRISTMAS WREATHS: There will be a demonstration/workshop on Christmas wreath making in the Hall between 2 and 4pm on Thursday, December 8, an event run by the Craft and Chatter Group. Price to be advised, but will include tea and cake. Places will be limited, so please book early by ringing Gill Rothery (01424 882774).
