SHARKS CRICKET: I have been asked to add to my last input on this, that the coach will also pick up from Hurst Green as well as Burwash through to Heathfield. I am thinking that they would also pick up in Etchingham on the way through. The coach will take you to each of the home games of the Sussex Sharks. Match dates are Sunday July 9 at Arundel, then July 12, 23 and 28, August 2, 10 and 18 all at Hove. Tickets/coach would probably not be more than £40 for adults £30 for under 19’s. To find out more email Tesky and Barbara on tesbar80@btinternet.com or call them on 01580 860625.

HOLIDAY ON ICE: I am thinking of trying to get a coach up for the Holiday on Ice show in January, for Sunday January 14, at 4pm. I will organise the tickets but would be grateful for some feedback to find out if this would be a viable proposition. We would probably have to pay £33 to £35 depending on coach hire. Children around £22. If you are interested, please call me on 01435 882107 or email marybarrytaylor@hotmail.co.uk Tickets would need to be paid for by the end of November. Further details when I have more info and if it is viable.
