 The Hadlow Down Festival Minimize
Breaking News – Hadlow Down Festival 2017 is underway
Some great news for the village – Hadlow Down Festival is underway and will take place over the summer period. It will be launched at the Village Fair on Saturday 17th June and go through to the closing weekend of 15th September 2017. The Parish Council was successful in its bid to the Big Lottery Fund under the “Celebrate” banner and has been awarded a small grant to deliver Hadlow Down Festival. The Festival offers a unique opportunity to bring local organisations and the community together in providing a range of events, activities, workshops, sports and celebrations. 
Each organisation will plan and self-manage their own event but will be supported by me, Denise Leary who will pull the events and activities together and support as needed. 
If you are interested in holding an event or activity, do contact me to chat about it and to complete an Event form. If you would like to volunteer and have a specific interest, again do let me know and I can put you in touch with one of the Event organisers.
Help needed: 
We need a graphic designer to design our booklet and leaflets. Do let me know if you can help or know of anyone who can assist us with this task. Please contact Denise Leary at deniseleary86@gmail.com or telephone 07462 790 210. Looking forward to hearing from you.

The following is an extract from the latest Wealden Police Update:
Buxted – an outbuilding on a farm in Howbourne Lane was broken into, resulting in the theft of tractor batteries last Thursday 1 December. The owner saw a small silver hatchback, partial registration number of X32, speeding away from the property at approximately 2.30pm that afternoon but did not suspect anything untoward due to the driveway being a shared space. Shortly afterwards however, the burglary was discovered with the loss translating to approximately £300. The driver of the silver car was described as being about 40, dark haired and unshaven. 
Lines of enquiry are being followed and witnesses to the incident, or anyone who thinks they may have related information, is asked to contact us and quote reference 468 of 06/12.

Thursday 29th. September.  A drizzly, murky morning in Hadlow Down.

The following Neighbourhood Watch alert has been received from Sussex Police:

Bogus council visitor in Mayfield
An elderly resident received a visit on Friday 16 September from someone claiming to be from Wealden District Council. The caller asked to inspect the decoration inside the property and proceeded to give the whole place a thorough look over, including the loft space and they then left.  From enquiries made later, the district council did not arrange any such visit. This was clearly a bogus caller and although nothing was stolen at the time, the visit may have been to check out valuables or to work out how to gain entry on another occasion.
