Rugby: With the 2017/2018 season fast approaching the Club is looking for new players.

Many years ago the then landlord of the Royal Oak made his debut in his 40s playing agains the French.

The Ouse Valley Footpath: Last week we spoke about the route from Newick to Lewes, ending at Tesco’s coffee bar. After passing through Lewes you can choose which bank of the river to follow. The official path follows the West bank, but there is a fairly lengthy detour around Piddinghoe. The East bank hugs the river but ends up in Newhaven industrial estate. Finally you can get the train back to Lewes and a bus on to Newick. There is an escape rroute at Southease ater three miles, where there is a rail station and bridge over the River. Six miles for this stage, making a total of fifteen from Newick to the Sea.
