Charity Shop

There is a new manager at the shop in Cornfield Road who has refreshed the shop's layout. It is urgently in need of good quality clothes, shoes and handbags. It also needs more volunteers: can you help, ideally by working a shift from 10.00 am to 2.00 pm or 1.00 pm to 5.00 pm? If so, please ring Elaine Waight on 01273 832963.

Report from local worker

Gail attended our October FSW Eastbourne Deanery meeting and reported that she is extremely busy helping some challenging families with complex needs. She particularly thanked Eastbourne's Fort Fun that has been very generous in donating entry vouchers which provided lovely days out for her clients.

Food Box

Please remember the food box at the back of church when you are next shopping:  particularly appreciated are dried and tinned items, especially meat and fish products, cereals, tea, coffee, washing powder, etc.  All items will find good homes!

Bridge Afternoon - 21st February 2018

The bridge afternoon will once again take place at Saffrons Bowling Club, Eastbourne. Play will tart at 2.00pm with a break for a delicious tea, sandwiches and homemade cake, all for just £28 per table. Free parking available. If you are not interested in bridge, perhaps you could spread the word, offer a homemade cake or a raffle prize? Your help would be much appreciated.
