To find out more go to the website of DMH Stallard, who are representing the developer, Greenplan Designer Homes Ltd before Wed 27th April and comment by Tue 3rd May.

Scaynes Hill Village Club:

We really are spoilt for choice in Scaynes Hill. For those of you that don’t already know the village also has a very active social club based down Church Road opposite the common. It is a members club but membership is very reasonable and gives its members access to all the club’s facilities, including a Snooker Room. Forthcoming events at the club will be listed next week so watch this space.

The Sloop: After a long refurbishment the Sloop has finally reopened and it was well worth the wait from what I hear. The food is predominantly fresh fish, offering a wide range of dishes although we meat eaters are also catered for. Good luck to Nicky and Gary.

WI: If you have ever wondered about the WI but always thought it may not be for you ... Think again!
