Year 6 Bibles
Every year we give the children in Year 6 a Youth Bible to take with them when they leave us at Newick school and set forth on their path to secondary school. The bibles cost £10 – if you would like to make a donation towards these we would be very grateful. Cash or cheques can be given to Rev Paul.

Sussex Hospice Trail
A 200 mile route connecting 12 hospice areas.
The Sussex Hospices Trail is made up of 26 mapped walks and was created to raise awareness and funds for our hospices. It covers a total of more than 200 miles of Sussex from Chichester in the west, via Brighton & Hove to St Leonards in the east and it reaches as far north as Horsham. Each walk is available as a downloadable leaflet or via AllTrails. Click HERE for the website.
Amberley to Halnaker
Walk number: 25
Length: 9.6 miles
Sussex Hospices Trail Part 25: Amberley to Halnaker is a 15.6 kilometer point-to-point trail located near Arundel, West Sussex, England that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and nature trips.
A linear walk from Amberley to Halnaker, forming the 25th stretch of the Sussex Hospices Trail. This stretch begins along the South Downs Way, crossing the pretty River Arun, before quickly joining the Monarch’s Way which leads you gently uphill through the beautiful Houghton Forest to reach Bignor Hill. From this point, mid-way along your walk, you will be rewarded with outstanding views down to the south coast. The journey continues by following the line of an old Roman road, Stane Street, which today leads you through pastures, woodland, a vineyard and scrub to reach the tiny village of Halnaker. The hospices of Sussex are dedicated to providing specialist end-of-life care. Friends of Sussex Hospices has worked with partners and supporters to create the Sussex Hospices Trail, a 200 mile long-distance path to support and raise awareness of the thirteen hospice care providers that serve the adults and children of Sussex. The route has no steep sections, but there is a very long and steady climb for the first half and the equivalent descent for the second half. The paths are almost all unmade and can get very muddy at times. Whilst most of the paths are well-walked, towards the end some of the paths are very narrow and are prone to becoming overgrown in late summer, so wear long trousers and carry a stick at this time of year. There are some busy road crossings and a couple of 200m stretches along the edges of roads so take care of traffic at these points. You will need to negotiate several gates, kissing gates, bridges and 8 stiles (6 of which have large gaps alongside, but 2 of which have only medium-size gaps so larger dogs may need a lift over). You will be sharing some of the fields with sheep and two fields may be holding cattle so take care with dogs. Allow 5 hours. There are no facilities for the bulk of the route. If you are looking for refreshments, The George and Dragon pub in Houghton is 1 mile into the route, there are benches for a picnic on Bignor Hill at the halfway point or you will find The Anglesey Arms pub in Halnaker at the end of the route.
If you believe you have been the victim of fraud or identity theft you should report this directly to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040. Where the victim is vulnerable,report it to Sussex Police online or by calling 101.

Scam emails and Phone calls
As we all know scam telephone calls and emails are becoming an increasing problem but these appear to have intensified over the past few weeks. We all need to be on our guard as they are becoming more sophisticated but the bottom line is that they are after your money. Please be extra careful when replying to emails purporting to be from a friend. Check the email address and never give out your bank details or personal information.
Below are a couple of links to government website that highlight what to be aware of.

For example, St Mary’s Church Newick is located with ///rehearsal.caressed.tweed
As a Church, we support FSW, the Family support charity helping children and families in Sussex.
Our particular support is giving food – cans, pasta etc to the Uckfield branch of FSW to distribute through their food bank. The current Covid pandemic is causing a sharp increase in the demands on the foodbank – there is real suffering, hurt and hardship out there.
Ron and June Perou collect donations in the porch at the Church each Sunday and deliver them to the food bank.
If you have a chance to pick up an extra item at the supermarket or are able to add an additional item to your online delivery please be assured that they will be very gratefully received.
A lot of small donations make a big difference https://www.familysupportwork.org/
Collecting for the homeless
I will once again be collecting for the homeless this coming winter. Warm winter clothes please. Coats, shoes, boots, trousers, jumpers, underwear. Ladies toiletries needed. Tents, sleeping bags, roll mats.
Sorry but no duvets or blankets for the homeless.
However the dogs home will welcome these! So can be left with me!
Thank you for your support we made a big difference last year.
