PARISH COUNCIL NEWS: Last week’s Parish Assembly was a pleasant meeting with twelve local parishioners attending. As there had been problems with the dates the speaker could attend there was for the first time no speaker. This gave parishioners the time to discuss any matters from the reports from councillors and local organisations, packs with copies of all the reports were given out at the meeting. The reports are on the council web site. In the Chairman’s report he advised that the council needed more people to come forward as parish councillors, Nomination forms for this can be obtained from the clerk, on clerk@whatlingtonparishcouncil.com and on completion have to be hand delivered to Bexhill Town Hall between 26th March - 3rd April.

The March council meeting followed the Assembly with a very small agenda covering, as well as council matters, East Sussex County Council clearing, this month, all our storm water drains, reviewing of Equality policy and the giving of grants, these were £50 to cover the Good Companions annual rent of the village hall, £50 to Rother Rural Trust and £515.26 to our Parochial Church Council for purchase and installation of two heating system thermostats.
