LOVE BURWASH DAY: Burwash Parish Council are hoping for lots of volunteers to join them tomorrow, Saturday, for the Love Burwash autumn clean up. Teams will work in Shrub Lane, the High Street, Highfields, Bateman’s Lane, Spring Lane, Burwash Weald and Burwash Common. They will begin work on cleaning up litter, washing road signs and generally cutting back grass and hedging to make the village look tidy and loved, at 9am. Free coffee will be available in The Bear, The Rose and Crown and the Wheel Inn to volunteers. If you are unable to help with the actually work maybe you can provide fresh water for the cleaning. Call Jackie Nash on 07787 863117 if you can help in any way.

QUIZ: Tonight, Friday, is quiz night at the Pavilion in Burwash Common. Teams of six players are welcome to go along and join in the fun which begins at 8pm.
