Village litter picking Cancelled

Due to it being Mothers day on Sunday, this weeks litter picking has reluctantly been cancelled.

Do not despair, it will be done next Sunday, April 2nd. Same time, same place. Full details below.

Join the Great British Spring Clean in Poynings on Sunday April 2nd at 11:00. We want to clear the Poynings streets of all litter. Our plan is to have two small groups, one beginning at the western village boundary of The Street,  and the second starting at the roundabout. We’ll include Mill Lane, the Causeway and Church Lane as far as Saddlescombe Road. It shouldn’t take long – maximum 2 hours. Volunteers please register with John Digby (johndigby@saffronstar.co.uk). Places are strictly limited, so hurry to avoid disappointment!  10 lucky volunteers will be suitably kitted out,  with litter pickers,  gloves, hi-vis tabards, bags and bag hoops, and we have tubs of antibacterial handwipes should they be needed. We plan to have someone in front of the pickers and someone behind to manage traffic at all times. Pickers will be rewarded with biscuits and juice for children and a pint for adults.

Gather at Dyke Farm House at 11:00 Sunday April 2nd.

This is a Poynings Parish Council initiative.

The Villages Read

Over the hill in Brighton they have “The City Reads”. Now we have the “Downland Villages Read”

We will be holding a “meet the author” evening later this summer, as a fundraiser for local churches, but in the meantime we invite all villagers in Edburton, Fulking, Newtimber, Poynings and Pyecombe to read the book.
Maybe if you are in a book group you could choose it as your next read.

Belonging  by Umi Sinha has been chosen for this inaugural event. It is partly set in a small Sussex village in a fold of the South Downs and I am sure that you will all recognise the locations it describes in Sussex.
This fascinating book tells the interwoven story of three generations, from the time of the British Raj to the aftermath of the First World War, and their struggles to understand and free themselves from a troubled history steeped in colonial violence. This is a novel of secrets that unwind through Lila Langdon’s story of exile to England, through her grandmother Cecily’s letters home from India, and through the diaries kept by her father, Henry, as he puzzles over the enigma of his birth and his stormy marriage to the mysterious Rebecca.
Umi was born in India and moved to England when she was fifteen and manages to bring the settings both in India and Sussex alive.

Pondtail Wood Appeal Hearing

“Please come and join a protest demo to show our concern at 9.30am on Tuesday 4th April outside the Pondtail Wood hearing at Mid Sussex District Council building at Oaklands Road, Haywards Heath, West Sussex, RH16 1SS!

We should be there before the start of the hearing, to make sure they know we care and we won’t give up on restoring Pondtail Wood! The hearing is at 10am.

Do come along even if it is only for 30 mins to show your support. The owner has good representation at the hearing and the people who make the decisions need to know that there is a strong local opposition.

Let me know if you want a lift or if you can offer a lift as parking isn’t brilliant.”
