Rother have ordered road signs for the new road names but no date for siting these has been advised.
Bucking the trend, good news for residents as Parish Councillors agreed to lower the 2019-2020 precept for Whatlington to £7,100, they were able to do this as the money from the now closed Children’s Christmas Party Fund account had been returned to the council.

As two councillors will be retiring the council needs to find two replacements if anyone is interested in becoming a councillor they can contact the Chairman or Clerk to discuss further.
