Thirty Years in Wilderness Wood is the story of Anne & Chris Yarrow's time in one of our village's greatest assets.  The launch will be in Wilderness Wood on Saturday 26th. September between 3 and 7 pm.  The book will be available to purchase and be personally signed.
Anne and Chris would be delighted if you could join them.  Speeches will be made at 5 pm followed by a complementary 'Woodland Punch' and then a pay bar.
So that they can have a rough idea of numbers, it would be very helpful if you could let them know if you can attend.  If you are unable to come, and would like a copy (which early responses indicate is an enjoyable read!) write with a cheque payable to C & A Yarrow, or transfer by BACS to acc no 00039976, sort code 30-95-01, with your name as a reference, and email to yarrow@hmill.plus.com
 that you have done so.  The discounted price to friends is £15.00 in person from us, or £17.95 by post from us.

The Playing Field drainage project starts! Contractors will be on site 21st Aug applying herbicide to the football pitch area. Machinery will be on site from the 27th August.
The football pitch area (the upper part of the field) will be fenced off and there will be no access through the gate from the houses further up School Lane. 
Affected residents have been advised but a mention on the Village web site would be useful.
The rest of the Playing Field including the Playground, cricket outfield and the car parking area will be open as usual. However, there will be contractors plant moving around so users please take care. Small children must be closely supervised!
The contractors (Bourne Amenities) are responsible for H & S on the site. The work is expected to take about 4 weeks.

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.

Did you know that there are over 20,000 dogs in the Wealden area? Just imagine if only a small percentage of those owners were keeping an eye open for people up to mischief as they walked their dog.

Received today from Richard Lloyd, Executive Director of Which?

People suffering from slow broadband will now be able to leave their provider without penalty.
This morning, Which? hosted an event with the new Chief Executive of Ofcom, Sharon White. She announced a revised Broadband Speeds Code of Practice that has several measures we've been campaigning for.These include -
Giving customers more accurate written information about the speeds they will receive.Making it easier to exit contracts if you get slow speeds.

We know unreliable broadband speeds drive consumers crazy. That's why 71,000 people have signed our petition for faster broadband and they will welcome these first steps to help.
People deserve to get the broadband speed they pay for. We'll keep the pressure on, but I wanted to let you know about today's good news.
