THANK YOU: to everyone who attended Chailey bonfire night, it was lovely to see so many of you on the procession route and at the memorial service at the green. There were three float entries this year, judged by Rev John Maskell and Councillor Sharon Davey. First Place, The Langley Shield for Best Dressed Float, was awarded to the Barnes Family and second place, The Presidents Shield, Windmill District Guides. Congratulations to everyone involved. The Bonfire night could not have been held without lots of helpers before, during and after celebrations. Plus all those who helped, throughout the year, with fundraising activities too. The Bonfire Society send a big ‘thank you’ to you all, unfortunately the list of thanks is too long to include everyone here. If you have any feedback about Bonfire Night please contact the Bonfire Society via email at contact@chaileybonfire.co.uk with your comments (good or bad). They can’t promise to implement all ideas to improve the Bonfire Night, but they will be read and consider all suggestions. If you have any photographs or videos of the evening that you would like to share, please email them to the Society so they can add them to the archives and share them on their website and Facebook.

As promised, you should have had a leaflet through your door last week with details of the Neighbourhood Plan and the consultation period in respect of the Development Plan which runs from 13 November 2018 to 8 January 2018. There will be a link posted on the Council’s website which will enable you to download or view a copy of it; however, if you don’t have access to a computer, hardcopies can be found in the Hardware Shop, the Parish Hall and the Pavilion in the village as well as The Half Moon in Warninglid, Tim Haynes Flower Shop, Pease Pottage and if you live in Slaugham, get in touch with John Welch on 40014. As I have said previously, it is important that as many people as possible in the parish read this document and any comments, concerns or questions, sent to the parish clerk either by email spcnhp@slaughampc.co.uk or write to her at The Clerk, Slaugham Parish Council, 2 Coltstaple Cottages, Coltstaple Lane, Horsham RH13 9BB. Please note that you will not receive any acknowledgement or reply until after the end of the consultation period and when all comments, etc have been collated and reviewed. I appreciate that many may feel that this will not have any ‘clout’ against further development within in the Parish but I do believe it will go some way to preventing houses going up here there and everywhere!
