RAMBLING ON: Despite the doubtful weather forecast and indeed the cloudbursts in the morning our Right Royal Ramble went ahead last Sunday afternoon with over 50 ramblers and their dogs enjoying the route through the woods and fields between St Bart’s and All Saints’. Refreshments at the end were much appreciated thank you for the tea, scones and cake courtesy of the WI and other expert cake-makers of the parish. I hear that over £300 was raised for the Friends of Waldron Churches to help with the cost of re-ordering of our two churches.

VINTAGE MOTORBIKES: There’ll be a gathering of vintage motorbikes on Wednesday evening at the Star. Would-be bikers and those who’ve already got the biking bug can enjoy the sight of the ranked machines, polished, restored and loved.

ROAD RUNNERS: Less of the horse-power but plenty of enthusiasm and physical effort will fuel the Heathfield Road Runners on their Midsummer 10k on Sunday June 26. The event starts at the top of Back Lane at 10am and follows the usual route via Browns Lane, Fir Grove Road, North Street and the centre of Waldron before running through Lions Green, past Burnt House Farm and Hanging Birch Lane and Back Lane to the finish. The majority of runners will be through within an hour and any encouragement from bystanders taking an early Sunday morning walk will be most welcome. Equally, drivers are asked to be patient and careful. Anyone who would like to help with the event please contact info@heathfieldroadrunners.com

QUIZ NIGHT: After a break last month the Pub Quiz will take place again this month on Monday June 27 starting at 7.30pm. Teams of up to six as usual, make up your own team or come prepared to join up with others. One course meal included in the evening.

BEST WISHES FOR HOLLY: Another lovely village wedding this Saturday and best wishes for health and happiness to Holly and her husband-to-be.

SERVICES: This Sunday there will be Holy Communion at All Saints’ at 8am but the main morning service will be a special one for Churches Together in Heathfield when our congregation will join with others in the area in a united act of worship. It will take place at the Heathfield Community Centre in Sheepsetting Lane, Heathfield at 11am.
