LUNCH CLUB: Herstmonceux Lunch Club is held in the village hall on the second and fourth Monday of the month. The Lunch Club offers not only a delicious home cooked meal to Senior Citizens in the community but also an opportunity for people to socialise and catch up. Without the help of volunteers this group would not be able to run and a great asset would be lost. If you are able to offer assistance, the group is looking for cooks and general helpers and would be very grateful for your help, it is approx. two to three hours every four to six weeks. For more information please phone Angela 01323 833261 or Anthea 01323 832204.

PIANO ANYONE?: Does anyone have a piano that they no longer require and would like to kindly donate to the Herstmonceux Health Centre. They would like to put one in The Great Space for Patient sing-a-longs. Please phone Bea on 01323-833535.
