Fulking Parish Council is an elected civil local authority that exists to represent the interests of the (civil) parish of Fulking. The latter is one of the many parishes that form the constituents of Mid Sussex District whose council (MSDC) has its headquarters in Haywards Heath. Our immediate neighbour, Edburton, is not part of Fulking Parish. It sits just within the eastern edge of Upper Beeding Parish. The boundary between Edburton and Fulking was once the boundary between West and East Sussex although both Fulking and Upper Beeding are included in West Sussex today.
This notice board is located on The Street immediately outside the chapel. It is kept locked and its use is restricted to local government communications.
Fulking forms the largest part of the ecclesiastical parish of St. Andrews, Edburton. It has no church of its own (though maps sometimes incorrectly identify the chapel as a church). The parochial church council (PCC) for Edburton and Fulking is the body that is responsible for the local property of the church, including St. Andrew’s itself, together with the chapel and the village hall. The PCC notice board for St. Andrew’s is also located on The Street in Fulking immediately outside the chapel. It is kept locked and its use is restricted to church matters.
The bus shelter is on the north side of The Street in the centre of Fulking. It houses a large open access notice board. Anyone is free to post anything but your notice may get removed if it lacks a date or is larger than A4. If you visit after dark, you should find that a light comes on automatically.
This notice board is inside the village hall to the immediate right of the main entrance door. As with the bus shelter board, anybody is free to post anything but your notice may get removed if it lacks a date or is larger than A4. You are welcome to post the same notice on both the open access boards. However, unlike the bus shelter, the village hall itself is normally kept locked so you will need to gain brief access immediately before, or immediately after, one of the many events that take place there.
The village hall also houses a small glass-fronted board that is intended for safety notices.
This board can be found halfway up Clappers Lane at the entrance to a small private nature reserve.
This church notice board stands to the immediate right of the drive that leads up to St. Andrew’s.
The porch contains no fewer than four church notice boards including the one visible in this photograph.
Notice boards are not the only way to discover or broadcast local information. There is also a quarterly newsletter, a village mailing list, and the website that you are currently reading.
