SPRING MUSIC: Now please forgive me if I seem a little premature, but daffodils preparing themselves for a colourful display help turn thoughts to spring in our household. And these thought were reinforced by news of a concert later this month at Isfield’s St Margaret’s parish church. The occasion is a musical event appropriately entitled ‘A Promise of Spring’ to be held on Sunday February 26 at 4pm. It will feature a selection of classical and contemporary music, with proceeds going to St Peter and St James Hospice at Chailey and Friends of St Margaret’s. Tickets at £10 a head include a glass of wine. These are available from The Laughing Fish, Isfield Farm Shop, and Cariena Cartwright (01825 750759).
CLUB TALKS: Isfield Wednesday Club have come up with a cracking list of talks for their fortnightly meetings over the next few months. This week members heard Ann Dunmore give a talk on Cornwall’s spectacular open-air Minack Theatre. At the next meeting (February 15), Moira Harrison will be visiting with her canine buddy Treacle. Between them they will be explaining and demonstrating the work of medical detection dog. On March 1 Geoff Pollard will be talking of his work as an Uckfield Countryside Ranger. Wednesday afternoon meetings start at 2.30pm in the village hall and wind up with a natter over tea and cakes. A fuller programme can be seen on the parish council website – http://www.isfieldpc.org.uk/news.asp
