Scaynes Hill

Bingo: Calling Anne and Harry in Burgess Hill, the next fantastic Bingo Night will be on Sunday 20 March at Scaynes Hill Village Club. The Bingo starts at 7.45pm and is a special Meat Bingo for Easter.

CARE: CARE is a registered charity operating locally which tries to help those in our community who are unable to get out of their homes to go shopping, visit doctors’ surgeries, hospitals, dentists, etc.

They are looking for more volunteers who could be involved in their rewarding work. Volunteers can offer as much or as little time as suits them. Even one hour a week would be helpful.

If you think you could help and would like more information, please contact them on 01444 455955 or alternatively, email

WI: If you have ever wondered about the WI but always thought it may not be for you ... Think again! They are a friendly group of ladies from all ages and backgrounds who all have different interests and abilities. Some of them even make jam!!! They would love to welcome you to join them. You don’t have to join straight away but can go to at least two meetings to see if it’s for you before you decide whether or not to join. They meet at 2.00pm every second Wednesday of the month and every fourth Wednesday for a craft afternoon where all abilities are very welcome to an informal few hours and a cup of tea, a chat and some craft. They sometimes arrange to go out to lunch once a month too! Any membership or other questions please call Fiona on 01444 891217 or Sue on 01444 831786. The next guest speaker will be on Wednesday 13 April 2016, when Andrew Elms the owner of Lordington Lavender will talk about ‘The Trials and Tribulations of Lordington Lavender’. It should be a fascinating talk and hopefully he brings along a few samples!
