Events and Projects update for Ticehurst Village Centre

It has been a great month for village centre improvements.

Three Family Fun Day Events in the Village – 21st July 2019,
1. Fun events for the children in the Village Square. 1 – 5 pm
A carousel, Punch & Judy, Fancy Dress, Face Painting, Lucky dip, Ice cream, Children’s Entertainer
2. Afternoon Tea in the Churchyard, 2 – 4.30pm for older people
St Mary’s PCC has kindly agreed that we can have a marquee in the churchyard. The afternoon tea is being provided by the WI who did a such marvellous job at the village fete. Anyone who wants to join in the event as a participant or helper is most welcome. Please contact Ticehurst Community Friends if you need help to get there.
3. Jazz in the garden of The Bell 1pm – 8pm  will be the third attraction on the day and is an event run by The Bell; so there should be something for everyone.

Planting.  We hope that you like the flower baskets on the lamp-posts and the undersill window boxes. They will be flowing once we get some more sunshine and as the plants mature. As this is our first year, we would welcome your feedback. If they are a popular addition to the village scene, we will expand the scheme in future years.

The Well has successfully been repaired and you can now look down into it without the condensation blocking your view.  Do take a late night stroll as the well is especially attractive at night when the lights are on.

A Taste of Ticehurst went with a swing and people are asking for more events like this.  A big thank you to all who were involved in creating such a happy event and to those of you who supported it.  We would like to hold more events, making our village square a community hub.
On Sunday 21st July we have three events:

Resurfacing the main road. East Sussex Highways has confirmed that due to the necessary repairs needed to the drains, the resurfacing will now take place in the next financial year 2020/21. It is hoped that a base layer might be laid in the Square at the same time.
We are in the process of arranging a safety audit for the crossing. With members of SpeedWatch we are also meeting a company which provides speed indicators, in the short term we hope that this will help to slow traffic through the centre.

The New Parish Website

We are very proud to announce the launch of the new Ticehurst Parish Council Website.

Our aim is to use this website to communicate more effectively to the residents of Ticehurst, Stonegate and Flimwell.  You will be able to see a range of information past and present, agendas, minutes, current planning applications, your councillors and dates of meetings in the events section and much more.

Information can be edited and posted by the Council itself, so news, notices, local information and news of forthcoming events will be much easier to keep up to date.  The information here will grow with time, responding to your feedback on what is of most interest and relevance to you.

We have a selection of photographs submitted by residents showing the Parish in full glory, but we need more, so please respond to the call for images post, plus interactive virtual tours, information about our villages and other local information.

Should you have any questions or comments about the new website or suggestions for further information or editorials to be featured then please do not hesitate to contact us.

We really hope that you like it.

Ticehurst Parish Council.
