Breaking News
Hadlow Down Village Committee has installed the new Dog Excrement Atomising Device at the Village Hall and Playing Field sites.
For those not familiar with this US invention it is worth issuing a warning to all dog owners in the area.
The device is activated when a dog within the pick up range of the device, which is set at 50 metres, defecates.  The device has an extremely sensitive odour detection element which only recognizes dog faeces.  If the faeces are picked up, placed in a plastic bag and put into a designated dog ‘poo’ bin within 30 seconds a receptor device within the dog ‘poo’ bin cancels out the device activation.  If the faeces are left on the ground or placed in a bag that is not put into a local dog ‘poo’ bin within 50 seconds then the device picks up the direction in which the dog and any accompanying owner/walker have headed and the faeces and container bag are atomised through a minor explosion which is also automatically directed toward the dog and owner/walker resulting in the faeces covering and settling on said dog and persons.   The odour strength of the original faeces is also increased by the device making it impossible to remove the smell from fur, clothing, skin etc. by washing but will dissipate naturally after 3 or 4 days.

The Parish Council has received complaints about owners not picking up their dog’s faeces. Despite the majority of people kindly clearing up after their dogs, there is a very small minority who are either leaving the offending item where it has been deposited or placing it in a bag and leaving it hanging in the hedgerow. 
This is especially a problem near the Village Hall, despite a dog bin being provided and residents paying for it to be emptied.  It makes it very unpleasant for residents and users of the hall and is a health hazard. Can owners please either place the dog’s faeces in the dog bins provided at the Village Hall and at the playing field or take it
home with them.  
Thank you for your support in solving this issue

They go on to state that the individual has won a Good Citizen Award – of typically £8,000 – and that the grant can be released for a fee (of around £210).

A mean theft that took place on Wednesday outside the Village Hall.  The "TN22 PLUS Club” had a juggler visititing to entertain and at the end of the session he was loading his van which was parked right adjacent to the side fire exit doors. He was in and out several times to load up. He also had his van passenger door open. His wallet was stolen from the passenger open glove compartment. Very sadly for him it had a significant amount of cash in there (£300). He thinks a car sped past about that time, coming from the direction of the Walkers/Mines houses. Another volunteer saw someone walk past at that time too. The incident has been reported to the police by Jimmy ( the juggler) but it was a real wake up call as to the vulnerability of even a sleepy dead end lane like Hall/Hut Lane.  Anyone who has any information that may help or saw anything suspicious should ring the police on 101.  It may also be helpful to contact Wendy Coleman on  07961 450357 or Janet Tourell  on 01825 830478 who can contact the victim who will have a Police Incident Number.
