 Welcome to Hadlow Down! Minimize

Welcome to the Hadlow Down website. Many of our village clubs and societies have their own pages within the site.   You will need to register as a user to be able to fully participate in the forums etc. and some of the site pages.  In common with other web sites that use 'Open Source' software we have recently encountered problems  with hundreds of false 'phishing' registration attempts. For the time being to register with the site and be included in the Neighbourhood Watch circulation list and Newsletter please send a request to webadmin@hadlowdown.com with a valid email address and telephone contact number. 
Hadlow Down Online, your community website, is a registered Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator and all members of the community who register on this web site automatically become members of the Hadlow Down Online area Neighbourhood Watch group and will be forwarded by email any urgent alerts, warnings etc. from NHW, Local Policing and East Sussex Trading Standards as soon as they are received. If you have any knowledge or suspicions of criminal activity or anti-social behaviour that you think should be circulated to the rest of the village via email webadmin@aol.com or 'phone 830661.

Since upgrading the site we have been experiencing a few problems with some of the features.   The most inconvenient of these has been with the 'Drop-Down' Menu bar above, please be assured we are working to repair this.  If you cannot see the pages you want or experience any difficulty navigating to the various site pages then please use the Menu links in the panel down the left hand side of this page.  You can return to the Home page from any other by clicking on the Hadlow Down header and picture at the top of the page.  We are also in the process of updating other features of the site.  Please bear with us while these changes are being made.
