LADIES GROUP: It was dry but a cold north east was blowing when the members of the Ladies’ Group were sent out around the village on a Treasure Hunt. It was great fun and everyone achieved a high score answering the questions set by Melanie Cutress, the highest scorers lost half a mark because when asked ‘what did the notice say in the middle of the pond’ they wrote ‘no fishing’ which was correct but it also says ‘no bathing’. Everyone was glad to return to the hall for hot soup and strawberry and cream shortcake. Next month Daisy Asquith, who is a television documentary maker, will be coming to give us a talk on her work.

JOHN GLOVER: The war veteran I have written about before, was presented with the Legion d’Honneur on his visit back to Normandy at the beginning of June. Congratulations John we are all very proud of you.

SUNDAY TEAS: Sunday Teas around the pond, remember Falmer, the setting for afternoon tea is just perfect and all the cakes are homemade by villagers and friends, from 2.30pm to 5pm.

ST LAURENCE CHURCH: Flower Festival, one of Falmer’s biggest events in the year. The theme this year is Leisure Time, there will be light lunches and teas being served on both days of the festival Saturday and Sunday, June 27 and 28, from 11am to 5pm. There will be a good clothes stall, bric-a-brac, tombola and plant stalls. Do remember to put these dates in your diaries. Also on the Saturday June 27 there will be a concert in the church at 5.30pm by two outstanding pianists.

BIRDS: We are still enjoying the birds in Falmer, last year we were delighted to have the most perfect House Martin’s nest built in the eaves of our house, this year they are back but one set have built an extension to the original nest. Last year two broods were raised and I am wondering if the second brood have returned to build the extension finding the original nest already occupied? Another village resident has a blue tit’s nest right next to his drive and every time he returns home the bird seems to attack the car or else it is his own reflection he can see in the window.
