Hello Everyone

A big thank you to everyone who came along for the ringing of the gilded shells on the village green. See report below.

Please take a few moments to help Jon Harris by completing the survey on the Quiet Lanes campaign.

There are a couple of ways for you to help with the Church heating fund-raising – book your barn dance tickets now as time is running out and, while you are at it, buy some greeting cards or postcards.

The Foresters Arms are hosting ‘Fair Fest’ on Sunday 27 May to celebrate Dave and Seb’s second anniversary as landlords.

And finally, do come along to the Fairwarp Community Society AGM or even think about joining the committee!

Happy Reading

Ringing the gilded shells a great success

Thank you to all those who turned out on Monday 6 May for this new tradition. A great time was had by all and it seems some Fairwarpians have taken it to heart and with meticulous research have provided a history to this event and, more importantly, the Winkle Stone. Intrigued?

Quiet Lanes in Horney Common and surrounding lanes – your chance to give some feedback

My name is Jon Harris and I live at Greenford House, Old Forge Lane. A number of residents in Old Forge Lane are concerned about speed at which some cars are travelling down, what is effectively a single track lane. We wrote to the Senior Traffic Officer, Kelly Burr at East Sussex County Council, with the response that the lane had it own calming features and that the National Speed Limit had already been reduced to 40mph and there was no need to reduce it further to 20mph and of course there is no budget to carry this out.
So I am contacting you today to canvass your opinion on the possibility of the lanes in the area being designated so called Quiet Lanes status, which has been an initiated by the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England, CPRE. There are projects all over the country and Quiet Lanes have been proposed in Surrey Hills as well as areas of Kent, our neighbours.
