Parish Council Meeting

Our next parish council meeting is on Tuesday 14th November at 7pm in the Parish Rooms, Lockerley. At this meeting we will be saying a sad farewell to our Clerk, Sam Owen, who has served us wonderfully for the last 2 years but who is now emigrating to New Zealand. We wish Sam and her family all the very best for their future down under! Why not come along to the meeting to hear whats going on in the Parish and say your own farewell to Sam.

Our Railway Survey is picking up pace!

There has been lots of frustration voiced about the wait times being experienced at the East Dean level crossing, and so back in June we opened a Railway Survey to gather your comments.

Many thanks to those of you who have already contributed your thoughts and experiences. We will continue to keep the survey open until such time as we decide that we have sufficient input to contact Network Rail again about the crossing.

To read what has been contributed to date and to add your own experiences please visit this page .
