SPRING SHOW: Last week the Burwash Horticultural Society held another successful Spring Show. There were some beautiful entries in all the categories. The afternoon visitors were amazed at the show of daffodils. One visitors wondered how they kept them alive when most of the one in her garden were done. I guess that is the knowledge the horticulturists have that we don’t. I don’t have the list of winners yet, but I congratulate all the those who entered the show and especially the winners. The gardeners will next have their Sweet Pea, Delphinium and Rose Show in June.

FLOWERS: The St Bartholomew’s Flower Guild will be decorating the church tomorrow, Saturday, morning ready for Easter. As always they would b e delighted if you could help donate lilies and spring flowers and foliage. If you are able to help with a donation in memory of a loved one they would be very grateful.

AFTER EIGHT: The After Eight Club will have their April meeting on Wednesday evening in the Pavilion in Burwash Common at 8pm. This month they will have someone from the Jubilee Sailing Trust visit them and explain how disabled people are given the chance to sail a tall ship along side able-bodied people. This is a fantastic charity. I was lucky enough to be given a tour of the ship they sail when it was docked in London. It is a really great idea and I could tell how much work had gone in to making sure that everyone had a great time but was kept safe. The members will also be planning for their coffee morning which is being held on April 22.

SHARKS TRAVEL: If you enjoy cricket then this is for you. The Sharks Travel have arranged for coaches to pick up spectators from the villages. To find our if this is viable and how much interest there is, a meeting is being held on Tuesday at 7.30pm at the Bear Motel. The travel is for T20 matches. If you want to know more do get in touch with Tesky O’Neal on 01580 560625. To make this worthwhile there needs to be enough interest. If you are interested but can’t make the meeting do let Tesky know.
