Father Christmas at Country Gardens, Handcross
(on the A23, half a mile north of the Warninglid junction) by courtesy of the
Rotary Club of Cuckfield & Lindfield. Every Saturday and Sunday
December until Christmas a Rotarian Santa is on duty from 11am to 4pm,
accompanied by a Rotarian elf or clown.
Each member has
had to undergo training, which included memorising the names of the eight
original reindeer. They also have to know the latest in kids' gismos &
movies, for ages under three to over six a challenging task indeed,
helpful in deciding present for grandkids.
In return, Country Gardens are giving up a substantial share of the proceeds to
charities supported by Rotary. This Christmas the main donation will be to
Sussex Air Ambulance.

Cuckfield Christmas Tree
The Club was
again allocated a tree at the Cuckfield Christmas Tree Festival. Chris Bosker
and David Wilson made decorations and the tree was on show at
Cuckfield church on the weekend of 8/9 December 2007.
