CHRIST CHURCH: Worship on Sunday at 10.30am will be led by Rev Martin Miller with Sunday Club for children. At 6.30pm our evening worship will be led by Rev Geoffrey Whitfield. On June 24 more than 40 people attended a meeting of the Christ Church Thinktank to hear Professor Robert Harwood talk on Climate Change: can technology fix it? Should it? He outlined a number of proposals that have been considered to counter rising average global temperatures and the immense problems in putting them into operation. Participants in the ensuing discussion stressed the need to take urgent action and the political and commercial pressures that make effective action difficult to initiate. The next Thinktank will be on Wednesday August 5 when we will be welcoming Katy Bourne, Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner who will be leading the session on Pressures on the Police in Modern Society.

WALLANDS SCHOOL: We are still looking for someone to run a French and/or Spanish after school club here at Wallands; you would need to be someone who is prepared to organise everything to do with the club independently. To find out more please contact Jo Taylor on 07842085246 / As part of National School Sports Week, over 200 KS2 children had an amazing introductory session of Tag Rugby hosted and organised by volunteer coaches at Lewes Rugby Club. For the majority of the children this was the first time they had participated in anything like this; the children were completely engaged by all the different activities that were so superbly organised, despite the weather. Mrs Taylor who coordinated the event wishes to thank every adult who helped to support; having extra help is essential to the smooth running of huge events like this and the smiles on the children’s faces said it all!

The FA are trying to encourage more girls to take part in grass roots level football and, as part of their push, they invited local schools to come along to the Albion’s 3G training ground in Lancing to an activity afternoon. Nine of our girls participated in 4 friendly games of football against others schools in the area. They received referee skills and goal keeper coaching and met one of our ex-coaches who is now playing for Millwall Lionesses, amongst many other activities. The girls had a great time and Mrs Taylor said how impressed she was at the improvement they have made this year. She wants to encourage them, and any other girls, to join our local girls’ team Lewes Bridge View; they are always looking for new players especially under 10’s. If interested or for more info please contact Sheila on Thank you to Sheila and Mrs Spencer for their support on the day.
