Pumphouse Designs (banner picture). Sedlescombe is fortunate to have several excellent businesses within the Village. Pumphouse Designs under the care of Andrew Gerken supplies architectural services. They can be found by taking the entrance next to the shop. See Sedlescombe Directory (within Annual Report 2009) for further details.  

Tea at the pavilion. Everyone must agree that our Village shop and post office provides a wonderful service to the Sedlescombe community. The first week in June is National Independents Week when small shops around the country, together with their suppliers, seek to raise awareness of the important role that local shops play in the community.

This year, Jenny and John Mainwood are inviting the Village to join them for tea and refreshments at the sportsfield on Saturday 6 June from 2.30pm. There will be tastings and a chance to sample some of the local produce available the shop.

The Sports Association see this as a good opportunity to let the Village see the result of all the fund-raising for the new pavilion. Open to all.









Walks. With the better weather, you might feel tempted to take a walk. East Sussex County has a webpage listing all sorts of walks from circular ones to long distance walks.
