Keen to avoid a comfortable middle-aged existence, forester Chris Yarrow and his wife Anne dreamed of a countryside venture where they could be their own boss and create their own destiny. Thirty Years in Wilderness Wood tells the story of how they bought Wilderness Wood in Sussex and set about earning a living from just 63 acres, without compromising their darkest green credentials.

The book is now on sale direct from Chris & Anne (01825 831972 or yarrow@hmill.plus.com) and at the Wood and New Inn.   Local bookshops in Uckfield, Crowborough, Lewes and Tunbridge Will also stock it.  It can also be bought from the publisher, at  http://www.troubador.co.uk/book_info.asp?bookid=3506.

We are advised that the defibrillator is now in place on the outside of the village hall next to the entrance.  The Parish Clerk is working on organising training and we will let you know dates and times for this when available.  It is however alright for someone to use the defibrillator without training as it tells you exactly what to do and won’t work on someone who is breathing.

The Parish Council are trying to find out who is in housing need locally and for which type of property they would be looking (e.g. 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, 3-bedroom, etc).    By clicking the link below you can download the housing needs survey which we would ask anyone who is interested or could be interested in acquiring affordable housing within the next 5 years to complete.  
With the information from the survey, we hope to discuss with Wealden about what could be done to increase the amount of suitable affordable housing for people living in the village – so we ask that you encourage as many people as possible to complete the survey so that we can get a good picture of what is required.
The survey can be returned in three ways:
 Email – please scan and send an email to the Clerk at hadlowdownpc@btconnect.com
Post – please send it to the Clerk at the following address:  73 Swaines Way, Heathfield, East Sussex TN21 0AN
Collection – please telephone the Clerk on 01435 860959 and she will arrange for a Councillor to come and collect the survey from you at a convenient time.

East Sussex County Council have spent time and money this summer in improving the ditches and gullies in Hadlow Down with a view to trying to stop excess water causing damage and flooding on the roads.     We are trying to get a timetable from ESCC about how often and when they will be carrying out clearing work on these ditches and gullies and, if we receive accurate information, we will let you know.  However, we would be grateful if residents could help to ensure that the ditches and gullies close to their residence are kept as clear as possible AS LONG AS IT IS SAFE to do so (we would not want residents living on the A272 to do this….).   ‘Kicking in the grips’ used to be something that school children did on their way to school (e.g. clearing the small run offs between the road and the ditch to allow the surface water to flow away from the road) and we would ask parishioners, where it is safe and practical to do this, to help keep the ditches & gullies running smoothly.  We would suggest that high visibility/bright clothing are worn whilst clearing the ditch and gully.

ESCC have had further reports of more bogus contractors knocking on people’s doors, claiming they are working on behalf of East Sussex Highways or Kier (their contractor). Residents have reported that these contractors are offering to fix their driveway as they either have left over tarmac that needs using up or they are having issues with their machines and need to put the material somewhere. Unfortunately residents have been tricked into having tarmac laid on their drive and then have had demands and even threats made on them to pay out for the service. Needless to say that none of ESCC's contractors working for East Sussex Highways would ever approach people offering any service in this way and demand payment for it.
