The History and life of St. Mark’s
From Janet Tourell St. Mark’s Church warden
I’ve just been to St Mark’s Church to put the bin out for collection tomorrow and see that someone has stuck a post-it note on one of the ‘PLEASE CLOSE THE GATE’ signs on the double iron gates. It laments the fact that there’s a possibility that by touching and closing the gate we might contract Covid-19!
Well you might like to know, whoever you are, that a week ago I was asked by the school to put these notices on the gates. During this extraordinary time, parents are dropping children off and collecting them through the churchyard by following a one way system to the small gate on the school playground and then using the path across the front of the church to walk back to School Lane. There had been some concern expressed by parents that both gates on to the road were left open; we had been doing this deliberately because of the risk of infection, however the risk of a child running out into the road and having or causing an accident has out-weighed all else in my mind!
I have a few suggestions for the person who wrote the post-it:
1. Take a path on your walk which doesn’t go through the gates!
2. Take hand sanitiser out with you.
3. Wear gloves?
I hope this is helpful because I don’t want to remove the notices.
We are delighted that Sussex Coffee Trucks will be joining us: 3rd to 6th December and 10th to 13th December, serving artisan coffee, hot chocolate and treats! Weekends are looking very busy as always and we have a booking system in place to ease crowds, but Hadlow Downers are very welcome any time (especially if you are coming on foot)!
Why not come on a Thursday or Friday for a Latte & chat once lock-down has lifted?
We also have decorations and gifts made by local artists and members for sale from The Hatch and courtyard stall. Oh, and Christmas Trees – we have quite a lot of those for sale too!

It also provides information as to how the Council will work with our partners and communities to facilitate proposals for neighbourhood plans or orders.
