APOLOGIES: I am really sorry that my column hasn’t appeared for the last two weeks, I would like to blame the time I am having with my Canadian visitor, but alas it is computer troubles that caused the problem. I know that there have been so many events over the past two weeks and I am really sorry that I have been unable to give them the coverage they should have had. I hope you all had successful events.

VILLAGE FETE: The Burwash Common Village Fete seems to have been extremely successful. Always a good one to visit there is some much to do and see and buy. With competitions for children, a dog show and lots of fun there is something for the whole family to enjoy. Music was supplied throughout the afternoon by the 1066 Pipes and Drums. At the end of the day over £5,000 was raised for the funds of the Burwash Common playing fields and Pavilion. Well done to all the organizers, thanks to the stall holders and helpers and thank you to everyone who went along to support the event.

MUSIC: Tonight, Friday, is music night at the Pavilion in Burwash Common. Local talented musicians and singers will be there to entertain you. These are always great evenings when the family can relax with a drink from the licensed bar with friends while they support the different acts. If you think you would enjoy being a part of the evening either as an entertainer or in the audience, please do go along.

LOVE BURWASH DAY: Burwash Parish Council would welcome any volunteers for the autumn cleaning of the three villages in the Love Burwash Day tomorrow, Saturday. The volunteers will work in teams and clear over grown footpaths etc, wash down road signs and generally make the area pleasing to the eye and signs readable by all.
