DROP-IN SURGERY: Lewes House of Friendship offers a drop-in surgery for anyone wanting advice for their i-Pad or tablet, on Wednesday mornings, 10am to noon. Just call in at reception, we’re on School Hill, beside Flint Owl Bakery.

Can you help? We are looking for a volunteer Treasurer, to take care of our accounts, anyone interested would probably need to spend around three hours per week on doing invoices, updating spreadsheets, etc but much of the work could be done from home. You could however choose to come in at lunchtime and enjoy one of our home-cooked lunches. Anyone interested should contact our chairman, Heather Hicks, on hoflewes@aol.com, or leave your contact details at reception, 208 High Street, Lewes, tel: 01273 476469.

FOOTPATHS GROUP: On Sunday, June 5, we took the train to Pevensey and Westham, and then set off in glorious sunshine in a northerly direction across Pevensey Levels until we reached Pevensey Haven. The banks of this picturesque little river were covered the whole way by white and pink hawthorn in full bloom, together with occasional attractive yellow water irises. We followed the waterway for about a mile and a half until we reached the pretty hamlet of Rickney. Our return route led us across more of the Levels, where sheep and cows were grazing peacefully, to Chilley Farm. Here we were pleased to be able to buy ice creams to cool us down before the final leg to Pevensey village. We had a restful picnic lunch in the Castle grounds, before returning to the station. The five-mile walk was led by Alan.

Our next walk around Pyecombe will be on Sunday. Meet at North Street car park by 9.30am. Everyone welcome. For more details visit www.lewesfootpathsgroup.org.uk
