We regret that the Music Night on the 27th September has been postponed. We'll let you know when a new date is set.
A brilliant day. Thank you to all who organised, set up, ran the stalls and, most of all, came along on the day. We expect to have raised over £4,000 including sponsorship, maybe as much as £5,000 once it's all properly counted and Graham's paid all the expenses.

Many thanks to the Pet Food Shop for sponsoring this.
Unfortunately, the Band, sponsored by Coxdown Construction, were unable to attend due to illness. Our lovely friends at Coxdown instead sponsored the inflatables on which the children had so much fun.
If you have photos that can be shared (please no children unless you have the parents' specific permission) please send them to us using the contact button below

Wild About Burwash Group is organising a talk 'Why Don't We Just Turn It Off'
'Dark Skies in the High Weald'
by Samantha Nicholas from High Weald AONB Partnership
Samantha will be talking about the importance of dark skies, different types of lighting which either
contribute to or minimise light pollution and the projects currently underway to measure light pollution
and preserve and enhance our wonderful night skies.
If you would like to attend, please email to register a place firstname.lastname@example.org
or you can also register at the Internet Café, Burwash Village car park.
The talk is free but donations can be made on the evening to help fund on going wildflower
projects in the parish.

The Playing Fields and Pavilion were established after WW2 as a permanent memorial to the men and women of this parish who gave their lives in service of their country. The new Pedestrian Access Gate (see following article) will serve as an additional memorial to those who fell in WW1 but can we do more to enhance the area in ways that pay due tribute to the sacrifices made by our forebears? Ideas Welcome but you can also help by using Amazon Smile in your dealings with the evil empire. Just click on the big orange link above and all will become clear - we hope! Or search for Burwash Weald & Common in the Amazon Smile search box.
If you choose us as your nominated charity when shopping with Amazon Smile, the evil empire will donate 0.5% of your purchase to our Memorial Fund. This fund includes the old Century Club, Friends Donations and monies raised by the After 8s and others towards the permanent memorial gate (see article lower down page) and, with the church, we are also setting aside funds to ensure that the War Memorial in the churchyard will be kept in good order.
