Scaynes Hill

Allotments: After many years of waiting Lindfield Parish Council are now the owners of a small parcel of land in Clearwater Lane. They are currently undergoing planning for the best possible layout after which the allotments will become available for rent. The Council are pleased to inform that the waiting list for allotments is now open and that applications are welcome from both within and outside the parish. Please contact Cllr. John Dumbleton (482633) or the Parish Office (831499) if you are interested.

Household and Garden Waste Collection: There will be a collection on Sunday 11 May at 10.00am until 12.00 noon. The waste truck will be at the North end of the Common.

Inn on the Green aka The Farmers: The Inn on the Green has finally reopened and has hit the ground running. The new general managers are Ben and Amanda Marks. They have already reorganised the layout of the pub with the ‘large’ dining room now being a pool room with two pool tables. The old pool room is a cosy lounge. Free pool is available every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 6.00pm onwards. There is a new menu with typical tasty pub fare and a specials board and a great Sunday Lunch Menu. The next big event will be on Saturday 17 June when there will be two fantastic bands playing at the pub from 7.00pm onwards; the absolutely magnificent Magic Taxi supported by Dirty Rollers. On behalf of the village I would like to wish Ben and Amanda the very best of luck but I have a feeling they won’t need it!

Scaynes Hill Summer Flower Show: This year’s Scaynes Hill Summer Flower Show and Plant Sale will be on Saturday 1st July starting at 2pm. There will not only be exhibits and plant sales but you will also be able to buy yummy teas, provided by the WI and there will be a raffle.
