Dear Householder

Most people in the village will be aware of the existence of the Hadlow Down Emergency Plan.
Over 18 months ago everyone in the village was sent a questionnaire asking for voluntary information on help and resources that could be useful in the event of an emergency. The response was sadly pretty poor with just over 20 households responding out of over 300.
Although the water outage last week was a relatively minor emergency, members of the Parish Council with the help of several much appreciated volunteers still went to great lengths to obtain and distribute drinkable water to the whole parish. Read More...

A property in Brick Kiln Lane, Hadlow Down was broken into last night. 3 saddles were stolen . The thieves obviously knew an indirect way into the property and managed to deactivate lights and cctv cameras by damaging them before entering the building and making off with the saddles..
If you have any information that may help the police please ring them on 101 or the property owner on 01825831939/07939618003.
Please be alert and report any suspicious behaviour locally to 101 as it seems thieves are targeting our area.

Flight Ticket Fraud

 Fraudsters are attempting to entice victims who are looking for cheap flights abroad.
Victims have reported booking tickets via websites or a “popular” ticket broker, only to discover that after payment via bank transfer or electronic wire transfer, the tickets/booking references received are counterfeit. In some cases, all communications between the company or broker and the victim have been severed.
Fraudsters are targeting individuals who are seeking to travel to African nations and the Middle East, particularly those wishing to travel in time for popular public and religious holidays.

Great British Spring Clean - Litter Picking Weekend  - 2nd-4th March
As people may be aware, for the last few years a dedicated team of volunteers have helped Julian Michaelson-Yeates pick up the litter from all of the main A272 and the majority of the back lanes of Hadlow Down.    Each year the amount of litter that has been gathered has been reducing due to the fact that it has been done on a regular basis.
This year as part of the Keep Britain Tidy campaign, there is a weekend dedicated to picking up litter and it is called The Great British Spring Clean.   This is a campaign with a simple aim: to bring people across the country together to clear up the litter that blights our towns, villages, countryside and beaches.
We would like to ask for volunteers for this task to contact Julian on his mobile (07814-931348) or landline (01825 830688) if you can make yourself available for a small period of time over the weekend of 2nd-4th March (even an hour would be helpful).   Litter picking equipment can be provided such as:  picking tools, black sacks, hoops for sacks, hi viz vests, etc

Grass verges on pavement edges
At recent Parish Council meetings, a problem has been raised relating to the fact that grass verges are encroaching on pavement areas making them very narrow.   This, in turn, causes problems for people with prams, buggies or wheelchairs, etc to use the pavements.   In the past, the job of cutting back the verges was part of the job for a Village Maintenance Team paid for by East Sussex County Council but, due to the severe constraints on their budget, these Teams have been disbanded and there is no resource from the County Council to do this type of work anymore.
The Parish Council are aware that, although Hadlow Down does not have a large amount of pavement area, the pavements that are in place are regularly used by a lot of people in the village.   At the last meeting when this was being discussed, a member of the public suggested that we should try and ask all householders who have properties adjacent to a pavement to take responsibility for their own grass verges and cut these back.    We realise that this in an imposition on people but, if every householder were to do this, then it would make life a lot easier and more comfortable for all the users of the pavements and therefore we would like to make the request and see if householders are willing to do it.
