Doctors’surgery: Peasmarsh - Due to low demand these have now been reduced to one per month which will be the first Tuesday of the month between the hours of 11.30 am and 12.30 pm. To book an appointment contact Rye Medical Centre on 01797 223333.

Crackling Telephone Lines and problems with internet in Peasmarsh: The Chair of the Parish Council (David Pankhurst) has written to BT and a copy of his letter can be viewed on the Parish Council website under Council News, and also on the Parish Council Notice Board at Brickfields. Any replies when received will also be posted on the Parish Council website and on the Parish Council Notice Board.

LOCAL BUS SERVICE: The Parish Councils of Peasmarsh, Beckley and Northiam started to fund a new 313 bus service at 9.03 from Northiam to Rye in April of this year for a trial period of six months. This time is now up and the three Parish Councils have agreed to continue to jointly fund this for a further six months. They will be monitoring the usage of this service and indeed other 313 services, and hope you will give the buses your support, as this will definitely be a case of “use it or lose it”- so keep travelling on your local bus. Incidentally, concessionary bus passes can be used on the 9.03 bus and the Parish Councils need to persuade East Sussex County Council that we do indeed need and rely on our buses both now and in the future.

Mobile Library: The next visit of the Mobile Library will be on Thursday 19th January 2017.
