next to godliness, and St Michael’s, Heckfield, needs your help!: Volunteer cleaners are urgently required to keep our flagship parish church shining in the sight of God and men, so if you or you know anyone who could possibly help out a few hours a month as part of the cleaning team, please give Sally Montgomery a ring on 01189 326557, and put another star on your crown in heaven!

SADDLE up...and get ready: For the first-ever live race night in Rotherwick Village Hall next Saturday, the Ides of March, at 7pm for 7.30pm.

Jockeys, touts and spectators most definitely required, and at only £10 per head bring a party in your true-blue racing colours.

Ticket price includes a fish and chips supper and all the fun of a day at the races. And yes, when we say live, we mean live – nominated jockeys will be riding the course and competing against each other!
