Get the newsletter in print
The December newsletter includes important news and comment on the plans for the new community hall and health centre, as well details of Christmas church services and photos from Halloween, Remembrance Sunday and Mayfield fireworks. The adverts are, as usual, a valuable source of details about local shops and services.
The print edition is available from Five Ashes Inn, Five Ashes Village Hall, Heal's Farm Shop, The Shopping Basket, Pink Cabbage, Leppard's Butchers, St. Dunstan's Pharmacy, Mace, and now also from the Hospice in the Weald shop & Mayfield Post Office.
The digital versions is available to download below.
Whether you read the digital or the print version, please donate (£1 is the suggested amount) so that the organisers can afford to keep on producing this valuable and much-appreciated magazine. Note that all editors and all the support staff provide their time free so contributions go towards other running costs.
And the two previous editions are also still available to download
