SUMMER FETE: Sue and Jane (Bishopstone Summer Fete Organisers) report: The annual Bishopstone Summer Fete took place on Saturday, August 5, once again, we were lucky with the weather and crowds of people enjoyed a traditional day in lovely surroundings. The amount raised for the upkeep of St Andrew’s Church was £4018 after expenses. This is a magnificent total and we are so grateful to all who supported the day by helping in the preparation (setting up in the kitchen and on the green), selling all the kindly donated goods, bringing all those lovely craft stalls and games, providing artists and entertainers, and of course coming to the event. The advertisers (publications, web sites, poster displayers) ensured that the day received such good publicity and reached so many people which is much appreciated. Finally, without the support and help of local people, family, friends and neighbours, this wonderful contribution to the church would have been very difficult to achieve. Thank you all so much.

FREE HORSE MANURE: Is available on west (Newhaven) side of Bishopstone Road between Bishopstone Estate and Bishopstone Pond. Help yourself, but please return or replace the bags.
