New Village Hall

We are currently working towards creating a sustainable future for the village hall and the playing field by: re-locating the new community centre to the playing field and providing one space to accommodate sports and other community users;
promoting greater usage within the parish and increased self-generated income by making the facilities more attractive and in the case of the playing field, ensuring that the drainage is improved.

Improving heating and lighting systems and making greater use of renewable energy sources, thereby reducing hall running costs and its carbon footprint.
We are a Charitable Incorporated Organisation:

The New Inn

John Booth – The Drinking Man’s Guide to Sussex & Kent 1974 “Let us have no polite hesitations about this statement, no careful conditional reservations, let the claim be made loud and boldly – The New Inn at Hadlow Down in Sussex is the best pub in the county and probably in England”.

The Village Pub  Activities include some occasional drinking of ale!! And occasional traditional events such asThe Ashdown Morris, folk music, indy, rock blues and not forgetting the Quiz held every second Tuesday, teams of up to four persons. 7.30 for 8.00pm start. Winning teams get to donate the winnings to a village organisation. Sandwiches provided. £5.00 per person entry.

In the mid-1880’s a fire destroyed the old New Inn in ‘suspicious circumstances’.  It was started just as the bailiffs were taking away anything saleable. The rebuilding design was undertaken in 1885 by Denman of Brighton.  Throughout the latter half of the 20th century the pub earned itself a reputation which could be described either as ‘enviable’ or ‘non-enviable’ depending on what the customer’s idea of a village pub should be! The interior has a long public bar at the front and a small public room behind. ‘This is a rare example of a rural public house and hotel which retains its original fittings virtually intact’.

The Kit Wilson Trust

The purpose of the Trust is to promote the welfare of animals – To Rescue abandoned, unwanted, ill-treated and neglected animals – To care for these animals and provide them with any necessary veterinary attention until they can be re-homed.  From a modest beginning the Trust has grown, and in 1986 set up its own Animal Rescue Centre at Hadlow Down, near Uckfield, in East Sussex. In addition to the animal rescue and re-homing work, the Trust has become increasingly involved in wildlife rehabilitation, and operates a wildlife emergency help line. Over the years, the Rescue Centre has also become a permanent home to many animals which it is not possible or desirable to re-home: these include horses, donkeys, cats, goats, birds and small rodents.
