Bobservation 43: Responsibilities

The village clear up on Sunday 15 April attracted a handful of enthusiasts, mostly as far I can ascertain, the ‘old’ hands.

Now this is quite acceptable and I can understand that newcomers to the village and those of you who are ensconced in your ivory castles do not wish to get involved in any village activities. However, I do think in the interest of cleanliness and the general look of the village  which,  after all, will affect the value of your freehold asset, each householder should take responsibility for keeping the roadside along the boundary of their property free of the rubbish which individuals periodically drop.

Newcomers may not be aware that the Council Tax which is levied on those of us living in the countryside provides a great deal less by way of services than that enjoyed by householders living in a town, in particular, the regular clearing of rubbish along the street. So to conclude this depressing plea, let us all take on the responsibility of keeping our own boundary free of rubbish on a regular basis and, dare I ask, perhaps showing a bit more interest in Fulking and the village activities.

On this note we still need volunteers for the fair on Sunday 29 July and Louise needs bottles for the Tombola.

Have a great summer!

Village Clean Up

Clappers Lane litter

Sunday 15th April 2018 from 10:30am

Please get involved in keeping the village tidy and free of rubbish. There are four meeting points:

  • Party 1 starts at the corner of Clappers/Holmbush Lanes and moves South;
  • Party 2 starts at the corner of The Street/Clappers Lane and moves North;
  • Party 3 starts at the Ram House by the Shepherd and Dog and moves up The Street;
  • Party 4 starts at The Deans in Poynings Road and moves towards The Street.

Take care of traffic and wear bright colours and please bring suitable gloves and bin liners to collect the rubbish. Dispose of collected rubbish in your own wheelie bins. If this time is not convenient choose your own time and do your bit. Perhaps ending up at the Shepherd & Dog for a well-earned pint! Any queries give me a call on 271.

Bob Rowland, on behalf of Fulking Social Committee.

Free Pallets

pallets
Pallet wood available for burning – both broken up and bagged. Bags are located at the side of the small garage in the right hand side of the forecourt of Aviation House, Poynings. Access outside office hours is via a small pedestrian gate on the left. Whole pallets available also, please enquire in the office. Help yourselves but proceed with caution as there are large nails in the pallets.

Christmas collections

Coping with Christmas
There are no garden waste collections between 26th December 2014 and 6th January 2015 (inclusive). For black/blue bins, the changes that are relevant to Fulking residents are that you need to put the relevant bins out on the Tuesdays 27th December and 3rd January rather than the day before. Collections resume their normal pattern on Monday 9th January.
