I am writing to say thank you to all your readers who are doing something during Diabetes Week (June 9 to 15) to help make life better for people who have diabetes or are at risk of developing it.
I find it very perplexing that there are numerous gangs of men replacing working lamp standards with higher efficiency ones, during the shortest nights of the year, but the roads are still full of craters and undulations.
I write with reference to the article in today’s Middy “6-4 6-4 blow to tennis club lights plan”.
Don McBeth asks (Letters June 6) about the meaning of words that are used repeatedly in the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).
ONCE again the wishes of the local community of Lindfield and surrounding district seems to have been ignored and the builders Wates have pressed home the advantage that there was no up-to-date District Plan and a five year supply of housing land.
May I please comment on last week’s Middy item concerning the granting of planning permission for building at Gravelye Lane in Lindfield.
This year’s Volunteers’ Week falls between June 1 - 7.
I am prompted to write by two articles in the Mid-Sussex Times concerning cats and dogs.
In last week’s Middy, Robert Eggleston suggested I, the “UKIP correspondent”, was “hardly correct....to state that this Government is increasingly reliant upon intermittent and unreliable energy sources.”
Many thanks to all who visited Mill Cottage Garden, Mill Road, on May 25 in aid of St Peter and St James Hospice: £457 was raised.
May we through your paper thank all who supported Mid Sussex Riding for Disabled’s charity fund raising event on May 25 and 26 at Southdown Nursery and Garden Centre in Hassocks.
Your excellent report and reader’s letter on next month’s exploratory drilling near Balcombe by Cuadrilla Resources (Middy, May 16) rightly highlight (a) imminent heavy lorry movements and light pollution from methane flaring and (b) fracking that may follow unless our community and the Government refuse it.1 comment
Regarding last week’s front page “Rush for Oil”, featuring an international wine expert from Balcombe, dismissing fossil fuels and saying “We need to get a mix of wave, wind and solar power so that we can ensure the lights don’t go out”.8 comments
Your Hassocks correspondent, ‘Middy’ May 16, might have invented a new rural pastime – ‘spot the pothole’. However, the residents of Lindfield could probably claim that their ‘craters’ in High Street, Denmans’ Lane, Lewes Road and Brushes Lane are bigger and better (deeper).
We are writing on behalf of Hurstpierpoint and Sayers Common Parish Council to thank you for your positive coverage of the efforts being made by town and parish councils to prepare Neighbourhood Plans under the Localism Act of 2012.
Thank you Mid Sussex Times for printing my letter re potholes on May 2.

I have recently moved to Joan Nightingale House which is opposite Beech Hurst Park.
I am delighted and honoured to have been elected as County Councillor for Haywards Heath - Town.
The arrival of four-party politics in England, and the distorting effects of the “first-past-the-post” voting system are woefully exemplified in West Sussex.
