BBC Sussex will have full live commentary of the game on its website, www.bbc.co.uk/sussex, from 3pm, while a full report and pictures will appear in next Wednesday’s Eastbourne Gazette.

SOME bicycles have disappeared from Wroxham Road in Shinewater recently. If anyone knows the whereabouts of a Petro Zillia Electra Cruiser and a Blue BMX, please contact Ruth or Marcus on 01323 461061 or 07939697156.

The bikes were taken from the couple’s shed and they are of course, very keen to get them back! The Cruiser is very distinctive being covered in rainbows and is also a limited edition. I look forward to hearing about the safe return of their property!

CONGRATULATIONS to The Friends of Langney Primary School. We reported a few weeks ago on the scheduling and then rescheduling of the Christmas Fair! Despite the setback caused by the snowy conditions faced, they managed to collect £980! (To make it sound even more impressive, that’s only £20 off four figures you know!) The money ever-so generously donated will go towards a farm trip for the children and also a theatre production for the School. Who says this country gets halted by the snow?!

TWO Year 7 students from Causeway School have taken part in a sponsored walk to help raise money for children living with HIV/AIDS in South Africa. Dominic Walter and Liam Rakow rose over £100 by walking, running and jogging 25 laps, in the pouring rain, around Princes Park. The money raised will certainly have helped to make Christmas special for children who need basic things like milk and nappies. Well done guys! Reminder: The Causeway Year 11 parents evening is tomorrow (January 13).

DON’T forget, the Langney Shopping Centre market is open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
