POST OFFICE: Heard a new suggestion to solve Heathfield’s PO-less problem.What about asking the parish council to make some space in their offices for at least a temporary Post Office to see us through Christmas? One of our bright shopkeepers came up with idea and it would seem to fit the bill, being central, flat, already having disabled access and with telephone and internet connection. When the council’s front window was broken recently, some of the staff had to work upstairs so it can’t be impossible to make a bit of space. Not to mention of course that the council would be hugely popular with every one of their local residents if they could help us all. Please?
MUSIC: Like buses, gorgeous concerts in October come not in single events but two on the same night. This coming week we have three performances, no less, of Aida with Southdowns Opera and our very own Heathfield Choral Society (in which many Waldron singers perform) on Tuesday October 13, Thursday October 15 and Saturday October 17. Tickets are available on line from www.wegottickets.com/southdownsopera. Or if you happen to know someone from Heathfield Choral Society. They cost £20 for the Saturday performance but I have no information whether it is possible to buy on the door. On that final performance night (Saturday), however, we also have Music for Magna Carta at All Saints’ Church Waldron at 7.30pm with the Mayfield Consort, directed by Andrew Benians with Jon Rawles (organ) and Fr John Caperon (reader).It’s an evening of choral music, poetry and readings celebrating the themes of liberty, justice,peace and citizenship marking the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta. Composers featured will include Palestrina, Byrd, Wesley, Stanford, Mendelssohn and Tippett. Tickets are £12.50 and are available from the Parish Office from Benjamin Tyler (07505 650754) or from Mayfield Wines.
STAR EVENTS: This month at the Star String Theory will perform on Sunday October 18 at 12.30pm and Folk Night will be on October 30.
SERVICES: This weekend’s Sunday services will both be at St Bartholomew’s and will take place at 8am (Holy Communion) and 10am (Parish Eucharist) followed by coffee.
