Wow, what a busy (wet and windy) weekend it’s been!

Starting with Saturday morning, it was the Lindfield Bonfire Society street collection in Haywards Heath. Many thanks to everyone who came out to help and support this and worked so hard for the morning. We raised over £100 from the sale of Bonfire Programmes, merchandise (calendars, mugs, badges and Bonfire Bears) and the street collection. Well done all, your hard work is greatly appreciated!
