TENUOUS LINKS: In my quest to relate all things of importance relating to our Estate, the tenuous link this week goes to Patricia Fellows on receiving an MBE. The link is that her husband lived in Middle Way cul de sac where I grew up.
RIVERSIDE CLUB: The club reopens at Cliffe Church Hall next Friday January 20, when we will be renewing membership for the usual fee of £10 for the year. We hope to see our regulars back and if you wonder what you have been missing and wish to become a member, please come along and join. As well as the yearly membership fee, it will cost you £2 each week for a varied entertainment programme and afternoon tea/coffee and biscuits. Our first brilliant speaker is Ray Hale with an interesting talk on Gideon Mantell MRCS FRS who was an English obstetrician, geologist and palaeontologist, born in Lewes.
CHRIST CHURCH: We have another Christ Church Tots session today (Friday) from 9.30am to 11.30am for pre-school children and their carers. All are welcome. There are two church services on Sunday, at 10.30am, Rev Dr Graham Campling leads the Sunday morning service and at 6.30pm Rev John Gordon leads an evening communion service. On Wednesday, the church is holding a Day of Prayer, focusing on its future direction and priorities. The church will be open from 9am to 9pm for silent prayer, with prayer led by church members on the hour.
The church has been running Messy Church sessions in school holidays and half terms for some time now. These have been very popular with young families. As from Sunday January 22, we will be running Messy Church sessions on the fourth Sunday of every month beginning at 9am. These will include breakfast, craft activities and a brief act of worship, lasting about an hour overall. All are welcome.
NEVILL BONFIRE: We will be collecting jumble on the Nevill Estate after 6pm today, Friday. The society will be holding a jumble sale at the Ringmer Village Hall tomorrow, Saturday. Our next jumble at Ringmer will be Saturday March 11.
