Heathfield Works! which has been doing a wonderful job of training and mentoring local young people for apprenticeships, jobs or further education since 2011 is losing its government funding .There is much concern but also optimism that it can be kept going and indeed expanded to ‘Wealden Works!’ and secured for at least three years. However this will require much fund raising in the local area. CTH & D has agreed to make a donation of £500. now to help with this very worthwhile project.

Christian Aid Week this year is May 14th to 20th . Watch for lots of publicity and opportunities to help or contribute nearer the time. Phil Hinde (Etchingham Church) is doing a sponsored walk from Etchingham to Chichester (!) from Fri. May 12th to Tues. May 16th stopping at various churches along the way and he may join us at the Welcome Brekkie. Phil can be sponsored at www.justgiving.com/Philwalkstochichester
