THE PRODUCERS: We were highly entertained at Lewes Town Hall last week with the mad but excellent production of The Producers by Lewes Operatic. Everyone from the cast to the backroom staff gave us a show to the standard of a professional theater .Well done to you all.

NEWSAGENTS: For your information, our Nevill Store shop hours include a closure each day from 11am till 3pm but having said that, they were closed at 10.30am one day last week.

BUSES: Not sure what is happening with our local buses but they don’t seem to be in tune with the timetables and it appears the bus drivers are just as confused. Since the half hourly ones have been reinstated, we have been to catch a bus on several occasions and still been waiting long after they were due. Even more irritating is that just when you have given up and gone back home, they turn up. Hopefully they will get it together very soon and order will be restored or they will be saying no-one uses them anymore.

WALLANDS SCHOOL: If you have any spare bulbs we could use to bring more colour around the school next spring, we would be really pleased to receive them. Ms Honess is hoping to plant lots more bulbs this term with the children; she also has a specific project in mind which require yellow crocus bulbs, but any donation would be gratefully received. Please leave opposite Maddy’s desk in reception. If there is anyone who attends coaching sessions in trampolining and is interested in entering, or is already entering, British Schools Gymnastic Association Regional competition, there is a possibility of representing the school. Do speak to Mrs Taylor if you’re interested.

CHRIST CHURCH: On September 30, at a meeting of the Christ Church Thinktank and Churches Together in the Lewes Area, Professor Richard Vogler and Dr Elizabeth Craig, from the University of Sussex Law School, talked about the European Convention of Human Rights. They showed how the Convention was conceived in the aftermath of World War Two, how it has influenced British and world-wide law, and discussed the background to proposals to be brought before Parliament to amend its application in the UK. The audience of 50 showed their concern about these proposals in well-informed questions and comments. Morning worship at 10.30am on Sunday will include Holy Communion and will be led by Rev John Gordon. This will be followed by a church walk at 12.30pm. Today, Friday, our Tots group is meeting. We have spaces for new people so if you are a carer with a pre school child do pop in and see us. It is just £1 per family and for this you will get refreshments.

JUMBLE SALE: Lewes Borough Bonfire Society will be holding a jumble sale tomorrow, Saturday, at St Mary’s Supporters Club from 2pm.
