THE Bridge Community Cafe will be open on Wednesdays, 10am-noon at the Langney Village Hall in Etchingham Road for residents of the Langney Community.

THE Catholic Church of Christ the King in Princes Road, Langney, will hold a Summer Fair on June 16, 10am-12.30pm. Tombola, toys, cakes, bric-a-brac, plants, DVDs, books and much more will be on offer. The McManus Academy of Irish Dancing will give a display at 11am.

WE ARE now in Euro mode with the football and after the success of the Jubilee, I want to see Langney and Shinewater sticking their bunting out for St George and supporting the team with flags on the cars. A house did a great job on the corner of Etchingham Road, with the Union Jack spread around the sides and England’s pride large on the front. If you do something similar, let me know and I’ll be proud to mention you!

AS part of the lead up to the Olympic Games 2012, Causeway school students were offered many ‘Olympic Opportunities’. Sports not generally on the curriculum were on offer and many took up the opportunity and challenge.

The sports included diving, martial arts, skiing, kayaking and mountain biking. The instruction was fantastic, venues amazing and a great deal of fun was had by all who took part. The students were a credit to the school.

THE Kielder Challenge is a national event where students from mainstream and special schools work together, competing against other teams in team building outdoor activities.

The Causeway School teamed up with Hazel Court School to take part in this year’s challenge event, held in Friston Forest.

The team consisted of four Causeway students (Mahalia and Marika Roberts, Charlotte Goldsmith and Abi Dudley) and four Hazel Court students. Their team was the ‘Red’ team.

The students were absolutely amazing and managed to be inclusive, communicated brilliantly, listened well and led each other to gain outstanding scores in every event, finishing in first place overall.

After more local heats Causeway will find out whether their scores were high enough to go through to the finals to be held in September – so fingers crossed.
