EASTER: Despite the weather a lot of fun has been had over the Easter weekend. The children enjoyed a lovely afternoon at the Wheel Inn, where there was an Easter egg hunt and colouring competition. Thank you to Kelly and Jack Harding for hosting this lovely event. The Burwash fire brigade held a hand car wash on Saturday morning. Lots of families went to Bateman’s to enjoy their Easter egg hunt, and the end of season dinner for the East Sussex county B team which was held in Burwash Village Hall was another great success. It is so lovely that people from the village continue to get together and join in events.

WALK: The April walk for strollers will take place on Wednesday morning. The walkers will meet at the Bear car park ready to set off at 9am. You are all welcome to join them Ijon Jenner will lead the walk and would love to see new walkers. They are a friendly bunch who enjoy a gentle stroll through the countryside in good company. The walk usually ends in time for lunch.
