We are indebted to a local funeral directors for coming to our rescue. The church was seeking a pair of coffin trestles for use at funeral services, rather than having to borrow some every time they were needed. “Cooper and Son came to our rescue with a generous donation”, explains Churchwarden Trevor Butler. “Part of family-run CPJ Field, the Lewes firm kindly presented us with our own solid-oak trestles which we can use at our services; it is exceedingly kind of them to help out in this way.”
