RAMBLERS: Our walk on November 13 was a five-miler, from Firle Beacon car park heading South towards Stump Bottom. We then headed North West that took us back up to the Bo-Peep car park and then back along the ridge of The Southdowns Way. It was a glorious sunny day which enabled us to have fantastic views of the sea all the way to Eastbourne. Our next walk will be on Sunday November 27, meeting as usual in the car park behind the village shops at 10am. It will be about 5 miles around Rushlake Green.

PAST EVENTS: The Brownies recently visited the church and enjoyed a visit to the bells and to have a go at hand bells. They had a fabulous time and went away with a smile and a sticker.
