COFFEE MORNING: On behalf of Lewes, Ringmer and District Social Group for the Blind and Partially Sighted People, I would like to thank everyone who came along to our fundraising Coffee and Cake morning on Saturday November 17. As always, we were so well supported and this time we were joined by Ringmer Library. It was a very successful and enjoyable morning and it all helps to enable us to continue supporting those with sight problems by giving them a social group with various activities and outings, so again, thank you so much for your support and see you at the next fundraiser.
