Scaynes Hill

Bingo: Calling Anne and Harry from Burgess Hill, the next fantastic Bingo Night will be on Sunday 4 October at Scaynes Hill Club, starting at 7.45pm.

Early Notice: There will be a fund raising and awareness night for Alzheimer’s and Dementia at Scaynes Hill Club on Saturday 17 October 2015. Both illnesses are likely to touch most families at one time or another in the future and support for these causes is vital. Not a nice thought but a realistic one. The format for the evening is yet to be confirmed but it will involve a quiz and food. Both Bridget Pepper and Steve Allott are supporting and promoting this event. More information will follow in the coming weeks. Just keep the evening free

Fruit & Veg Share: The Fruit & Veg Share scheme, which allows those with excess produce to leave it for others to collect, is back again for a third year. Look out for the Share stall with the green and white stripy awning, which will be on the grass in front of the Church every Tuesday until September. Leave or take produce with no money changing hands! Last week this year so make the most of it!

Quiz Nights: There has been a change to the Inn on the Green Quiz Night. It will now be held on the first Wednesday of the month and not weekly. It starts at 7.00pm, with a £2.00 entrance fee and a maximum of 6 players per team. Why not go along and test out your brain power?

Rugby World Cup: It’s that time again when if you don’t like sport you need to hibernate! The Rugby World Cup started on Friday 18 September with England v Fiji starting off proceedings. All the matches will be shown at Scaynes Hill Club, Church Road (opposite the common).

St Augustine’s Church News: 
Youth News – a message from Emily Ludgate - Thank you to those folks who have chatted with me about our Knitted Nativity project. I now have a knitting pattern book, money to buy the wool and a few people have offered to help with knitting. If you fancy knitting some sheep, maybe a few angels or shepherds please have a chat with me. Our Christmas Posada, travelling nativity is looking like it’s going to be a lovely church and community project. Please speak to Emily 07825235907 or email her at
