HISTORICAL SOCIETY: Please join us on Thursday 17th January in the Village Hall for 8pm to hear Tony Turner’s talk on “From Mails to Males!” When WW1 ended, it was expected that the public would start travelling on commercial airliners. However, this was not the case as the railways were so efficient! The only thing that took to the air was post. Then a series of key events occurred which kick-started the airlines and passenger traffic took off. This is the story of those critical years. www.wivelsfield-historical-society.co.uk Visitors welcome. £2.50 incl refreshments.

Neighbourhood Plan: as mentioned last week, you have until midnight on Monday, 14 January to make any comment on the Plan if you disagree with it in any way. I am aware that some feel that we do not need to include any provision for further housing in the parish. Whilst I appreciate that as things stand today and what MSDC have said, our needs are currently met. However, what we seem to have lost sight of is the fact that this Plan is covering our needs for the next 10, 15 or more years not just the next 5 years! So whilst it would appear we are more than covered today, if we don’t show we have thought of what might change in the future, we could get well and truly stung with so much more development with nothing to fight it with. Please, speak to those who have put the plan together if you have any questions as I can assure you that they have tried to consider every possibility that might happen, not just in the next 5 years but much further into the future.
