Fun in the sun and all for a very worthy cause

It’s great to have a bit of fun in the sun and it’s great to be raising money for a good cause – it’s truly amazing when you can put them both together.

That’s what happened last weekend when the Association of Carers managed to raise more than £1,100 with a Charity Obstacle Fun Run at RAW FIT’S ‘The Lion’s Den’ near Broad Oak.

Over 100 people took part trying to see how many laps of the three kilometre course they could complete – split in to a morning and an afternoon session the maximum number of laps completed in each session was five.

This can be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems.

Taking everyone at face value

‘Can archdeacons go to heaven?’ was a question that exercised medieval minds because it was this rank of the clergy – between the parish clergy and the bishop – which dealt with financial matters.  Today’s archdeacons remain concerned with matters of finance and buildings but I hope that the current Archdeacon of Hastings – whose […]
