CREAM TEAS: Wendy’s famous Strawberry Cream Teas will be served tomorrow, Saturday, 2.30pm to 4.30pm at Bishopstone Parish Hall. There will be stalls and a raffle. All proceeds from this event go to Christian Aid.

BEACH CLEAN: Tide Mills Community Beach Clean is at 10am to noon on Sunday. Meet at the beach end of Mill Drove (off the A259). Come along, grab a bag and litter picker, and help clean up the area for visitors and the local wildlife.

WATERLOO: Donning our wellies yesterday was a reminder that it was the Waterloo bicentenary (although the eponymous dukes were originally of leather). A lasting peace with France followed, although the unearthing of a figurine of Napoleon in Bishopstone Village a few years ago suggests he also had local admirers. The longest day is on Sunday.
