Brain Strain!: Yes! I’m still recovering from the Quiz of the Year!!! It was a great evening at the Memorial Hall last Saturday, with a lovely atmosphere, fab food, glasses of wine, friends to play alongside, and to wind up at other tables..! A fantastic Raffle which, along with the entrance fees, made a total of over £550 towards the Hall refurbishments, and a brilliant Quizmistress, Jan Wood, aided and abetted by Martin and Liz, who all made sure the questions were delivered with clarity and scored correctly..! All just wonderful...except for our team’s final result...which was NOT brilliant...not bottom, but bloomin’ nearly!! It’s the taking part that counts! Thanks Jan, it was good fun!

Ours is one of the oldest horticultural societies in the country – and one of the best!! Make a note to join in the Autumn Show on 8th September – you’ll enjoy it.

Iden

IDEN PARISH COUNCIL MEETING: The meeting on Tuesday 3rd April, in Iden village hall, was chaired by Ray Griffin, who said that Iden was saddened by the recent death of Derek Barham, a much-valued Iden resident. Keith Glazier, Chairman of East Sussex Council, said that potholes in the road have been particularly rife since the latest snow and ice. There are now twenty three gangs out repairing them, rather than the usual twelve. Keith asked for large potholes to be reported. There are discussions ongoing regarding the high speed rail link. Councillor Paul Osbourne from Rother district council spoke about parking issues in Rye. Roads are required to be kept clear for ambulances, fire engines, and refuge trucks. Police cannot oversee all irregular parking due to costs and manpower, and there has been discussion about council intervention regarding parking. The Iden village signs are being cleaned and painted. The dog-waste bins in Iden’s park cannot be emptied along with other dog-waste bins, because of their distance from the road, therefore a solution is being sought. The bin by the bus stop opposite the war memorial is to be replaced. The parish council is waiting for a visit from Inspector Russel, who is to talk about neighbourhood policing. All will be invited to attend. The next council meeting will be in Iden village hall on Tuesday 1st May, at 7.30pm.
