FATHER’S DAY: Lime Cross are holding a special event offering Manapés and craft beer, cider and wine at Olive’s Café between noon and 3.30pm plus hand-made wines, rare pine, inspirational books, fire pits and lots more.

FUND RAISING: Herstmonceux Integrative Health Centre has received a very generous donation of £1000 from the Herstmonceux Freemasons. They are currently raising funds for a new ECG machine and this donation goes a very long way to reaching their goal. They use the current ECG machine on a daily basis, this allows the doctors to assess heart conditions during appointments and refer much quicker. A huge thank you is offered to the Masons for their generosity. Thanks also to everyone that attended the quiz in May. Over £500 was raised towards the purchase of the ECG machine. Thanks to all those who helped out on the night.
