Hi Karen,

Thanks for your message.

Unfortunately I have had a serious accident so have not been able to become involved in village life as I would have liked to as I am housebound and my husband only comes at weekends due to his business in Hayes, however he has come today due to weather .We have been to D.I.Y and Wills and were impressed.

Welcome to Northiam. Unfortunately, I don't think this site gets visited very often, so sorry if you have felt ignored!
I had a look in O Rare Norgam & can only find a reference to Silverden Manor. If you haven't already, join the Conservation Society, who may have some details. Mervyn Hayes is the Chairman & lives at Rose Cottage opposite the Muddy Duck (now sadly defunct!).
I hope you have discovered the Parish Magazine, which should help you to decide which of our many Societies you might like to join. You will be very welcome, just make yourself known to whoever is running a raffle - we do tend to recycle a lot of bottles of wine that way here!!!!
The Surgery, Dentist & Optician are all brilliant, and Jempsons & the Spar both surprisingly competitive. The DIY is unsurpassed - as I usually discover after having no luck at B&Q - will I ever learn?
Sorry I couldn't answer your question, but I do hope you are very happy here.
Personal plug - JOIN THE BONFIRE SOCIETY! It's a strange Sussex custom.
You are probably fully involved by now, but if you need any help, please contact me 01797 253375

Very best wishes,

Karen Ayling

Volunteer Reading Helpers Needed for Local Schools

21st February 2017

Kate Rumsby:

Could you spare 90 minutes twice a week to make a difference to a child in your local area? Beanstalk is searching for members of the community in Northiam and the surrounding area to help children with reading in local primary schools.

Beanstalk is a national literacy charity that transforms children’s life chances by supporting volunteers to work in primary schools with children who have fallen behind with their reading.

A Beanstalk volunteer will spend 30 minutes 1-to-1 with the child twice a week and try to bring the joy into reading, by reading fun books together, chatting and playing games. Very importantly, Beanstalk sessions are meant to be very different from normal school and are relaxed, informal and fun.

If you have a passion for reading and can share this with a child then do please contact us. Full training and support is provided.

To find out more about volunteering as a reading helper in primary schools call 01622 662026 or apply via the website
