Inn on the Green: By the way the Inn on the Green has a new menu for the season and quite honestly it is the best I have seen from any pub for a long time. Keep up the excellent work chaps.

Monthly Quiz: Just a reminder that the pub now holds a very well supported monthly quiz. It is held on the first Wednesday of the month and starts at 8.00pm in the restaurant. The cost is just £2.00 per person with a maximum of 6 players per team. There is always a special meal deal on for those participating. The next Quiz Night will be on Wednesday 6 July so there is no excuse for missing it.

St Augustine’s Church: The Queen’s Birthday Can you help? St Augustine’s are hoping to serve home-made cakes and teas at the church in aid of Family Support Work during the Open Gardens on Saturday 2nd July. Please let the church know if you would be able to bake a cake or if you could spare an hour on the day to help serve teas. Any offers of help would be gratefully received! Many thanks.

War Memorial: As you may have noticed, the War Memorial has been taped off. This is merely a safety precaution and there is not thought to be any imminent danger to its structural stability. The Church are concerned, however, that the condition of the wooden Calvary has deteriorated and it requires some remedial work. In order to access specialist advice they have contacted the War Memorials Trust. This organisation is also a possible source of funding for the project. The WMT is experiencing heavy demand for its services at present and it will take several weeks before more is known. The hope is that work will be able to commence on the repair and conservation of the War Memorial before the winter.

Scaynes Hill Flower Show: This year’s Scaynes Hill Flower Show and Plant Sale will take place on Saturday 9th July 2016. The show will be open to the public from 2.00pm until 4.00pm. Competitive entries must be in place between 9.00am and 11.00am on the morning of the show. Schedules for the show should have been delivered around the village by now but spares are available from the Garage, The Sloop or from the back of the church. For more information please call Dianne on 831676
