BINGO: There will be a Charity Prize Bingo afternoon next Sunday, March 19, at the village Hall in aid of Demelza. This will be our first one with our new bingo machine which will be a lot quieter that the one we have been using. The old machine was over sixty years old and was made by Ann Rumen’s father Les Standen. It has certainly served us well and will now go into retirement. The bingo will start at 2.30pm and includes 12 games for £1 with 24 chances to win a prize. Home made refreshments will be available in the interval and a raffle will also be held. We would be very grateful for all and any prizes donations. Please call Mary Taylor BEM on 01435 882107 and let her know if you can give anything or if you will be joining her.

BOWLS: The Burwash Short Mat Bowls Club had two leagues matches last week. The first was at home to Old Heathfield on Monday, when they had a great evening with old friends. The triples lost one and won one while the pairs won both of theirs. On the Tuesday evening they travelled down to Crowhurst for what was another friendly evening with some tough games. Unfortunately both the triples lost but one pair lost but the other one managed a good win. This gave us eight more points for the league table. Our next match is on Monday, away to Pevensey.
