Fancy some locally grown, award winning sparkling wine?

Our wonderful supporters at Woodreed Vineyard are making a 10% donation to us from all orders of their award winning sparkling english wine. What could be better, than sitting down to enjoy a delicious glass of locally grown fizz whilst supporting our fundraising effort at the same time, cheers !

The vineyard is perfectly situated on a south facing slope, sheltered from the elements by the remnants of the ancient forest that covered the High Weald of East Sussex. First planted in 2013, the vines have thrived on the rich soil and have been allowed to develop unrushed, with the first harvest coming in 2018. The grape production and wine making systems are fully organic, certified by the Soil Association, allowing Woodreed to produce a high quality wine that is full of character without the use of chemicals.

To place an order please contact Rob Hunter 07748 047143

Race Night Postponed

We are disappointed to announce the cancellation of our Race Night scheduled for Saturday 23rd Oct at the Village Hall.  We were taken aback with the generous support of so many – all the races and horses were sold and Julian Michaelson-Yeates was busily preparing a delicious curry for an expected eighty people.  Unfortunately, the take-up of bookings did not match our optimism and with such a low number, we decided to cancel.  There may be several reasons to explain this but we suspect that continued anxiety about gathering in a confined indoor space with others was a real issue.

We have re-scheduled the Race Night for Saturday 26th March 2022.  Thanks for your continued support for our new hall and please continue to visit our website and Facebook pages to keep in touch with our progress.

Best wishes,
