Cuckfield’s Play Meadow Users Association is urging people to back it to the end as it battles to buy the amenity land and stop the district council building a house on it. Flis Irving said: “We have raised over £100,000 so far and donations are still coming in. Our bid will be submitted this Friday and we hope that MSDC will interpret the word “value” in other than monetary terms.
“The Play Meadow is of huge value to the groups and individuals who use it. MSDC will try and tell you that the council is desperate for cash, but one look at the published financial statements will show you that it is in a very comfortable position.”
