It will start from the Village Hall Lockerley on Butts Green at 1000.

The walk takes 5 hours including the lunch break and is about 7 miles. The terrain is benign, firm ground and there are no styles just gates. Tim and Tish.

200 CLUB - Year 2018

This popular village draw is organised for the Memorial Hall by Carole Woolley,Willingale House, Butts Green, Lockerley 017 94 34 08 67. Thank you to all members and a big thank you to all those members who steadfastly pay their subs by standing order. Your contributions help our hall considerably. Now is the time for existing members, and NEW members, to join for 2018. The annual cost is still £12 and there are two monthly prizes of £20, except in June and December when there is one prize of £50. Additionally, there are currently two extra quarterly of £25 and now one of £20 and three of £25 in November. Overall it amounts to £800 in 34 prizes. However the prize pot does depend on membership numbers. If numbers fall, so do prizes. All members or couples may have more than one entry. Everyone must be over 16. All profit goes to the Memorial Hall funds – there are no expenses. Please let Carole have your subscription as soon as possible, but at least by 31st January 2018 if you want to be in the January draw. Cheques are better than cash, or best of all, standing orders which must be at your bank before January 1st so do it now. Call Carole for a form and your number. Cheques should be written to “Lockerley and East Dean Memorial Hall” and posted or delivered to the above address which is behind Richmond at the Dunbridge corner of the Green. Please try and help to make Carole’s job that much easier. It is a very big task for one person. In 2017, for the first time, we had our full complement of 200 members but we have had changes during the year. We need new entrants and more standing orders so that more can be done for the Village Hall. Good luck to everyone. The odds are excellent and you will be helping our Hall. I am required to tell you that your details – name address and telephone number are held on my computer – but you probably realise this!

200 Club Draw

The winners for October 2017 were: Mrs Dot Mornington-West £20 and Mrs Elaine Collinson £20
