PARISH OUTING: On Wednesday 5th July we are going to Berwick Church - an amazing treasure near Alfriston which is famous for its 20th Century wall paintings (www.berwickchurch.org.uk). We then move on to Middle Farm where you can get lunch and enjoy the various shops on site. We will again, thanks to Ken Lacey, have the Community Minibus with Ken as our driver. Ken Phillips has also agreed the church will pay the cost of the bus… thank you Ken. We will meet at St Wilfrid's at 10am and be back by about 3pm. Please speak with Ronnie, 07702064231, to put your name on the list to join us. Ronnie Hall
BEE HIVE: It is hard to understand why someone would set fire to the beehive in St Nicolas’ churchyard last weekend, but they did. Fortunately, the bees had not yet been installed. However, thanks to a local doner, it will be possible to re-build the hive and provide a home for some bees in the next few weeks.
CONTEMPLATE & CREATE:
Saturday 1st July, 10-12.30 at St Wilfrid’s Church. Make a creative response to a gentle biblical meditation. Art materials provided or bring own. Come and try something different – no artistic skills necessary! See Clive or Merriel.
