Annual Parish Meeting in May

The next Parish Council meeting will be our Annual Parish Meeting, where as well as the election of officers, we will be opening important discussions regarding the future plans for the development of our village. All villagers are urged to join us for the meeting and refreshments, and to have your say on future village life.

The meeting is on Tuesday 8th May and starts at 7pm in the Parish Rooms, Lockerley.

Working Group Meeting in June

The Working Group meetings have no agenda and are not for discussing official parish council business. They are organised to give villagers a chance to get together and arrange social events or organise other projects to improve any aspect of life in the village

The next meeting is on Tuesday 12th June and starts at 7pm in the Parish Rooms, Lockerley. All welcome.

A new project for the village!

At our last Parish Council meeting we were delighted to welcome members of the committee for the Jubilee Field Playground project - a new venture to create a playground near Lockerley Green for the children of Lockerley and East Dean.

Councillors agreed to support this new project in two ways. Firstly, by allocating S106 funding from recent building projects in the parish to the fund raising effort, and also by creating a space on our website for new of the project to be made available to residents. Find out more about the progress of the project and how you can get involved in the fund raising efforts by visiting our new Playground page.

Our Railway Survey is still running!

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.
