Already looking forward to a beautiful spring and a hot and dry summer! Cricket matches, picnics, parties, working weekends...
The Rudes are already booked for the 5th August and the Bonfire & Fireworks will be on the 4th November.
More dates soon.
We had our first "Walk On The Wild Side". A really enjoyable experience. Mind you, the weather was perfect and we can't guarantee that on future walks!
The walk was about 7 miles, which sounds a lot but we went at a leisurely pace, with plenty of stops so that Mark (a very knowledgeable local historian) could point out interesting facts and observations so it did not seem at all difficult. We started at 11am at the Playing Field and were back by about 3pm. All of the route is on lanes or public footpaths.
There were about 10 of us and 4 dogs on the walk. We stopped for a packed lunch (a cheese salad bap and a slice of flapjack) about half way round.
Thanks to funds raised by Peter Smythe doing a marathon (on his treadmill), plus extra donations from villagers, friends and family and an additional contribution from Sussex Police, Hadlow Down now has an automatic defibrillator at the Playing Field. Together with the device at the Village Hall, Hadlow Down now has two defibrillators in the village.
East Sussex Ambulance Service knows the exact location of this device and the door lock code. In an emergency always call 999 first, ask for ambulance, explain the situation and your location. Instructions will be given.
This defibrillator is available 24/7 and can be used by anyone, not just users of the playing field. So if you live nearby, get to know exactly where it is - just in case of that unlikely emergency!
