The Woodingdean Lions would like to thank those kind people who donated to our highway collection at the Downs Hotel crossroads on December 10 and 17.

The total donation amounted to £1,275.08 and will go to local charities, an annual dinner and to the elderly of our village.

We hope we didn't delay you too long, that you had a merry Christmas and we bid you the best for 2006.

-Councillor Geoffrey Wells, Brighton
