CARE GROUP AGM: takes place on Wednesday 27 July at 7.30 pm in the Parish Room. Please come and support this fantastic village institution. The Care Group organises volunteers who take Balcombe villagers to various appointments in and around the area eg to Handcross Surgery, the Princess Royal Hospital and sometimes to East Grinstead. They are always on the lookout for new drivers – the more there are the fewer times you are called upon. So come along to the AGM and get involved.
