No bonfires!

No bonfires!
The Parish Council has received several complaints about bonfire smoke. Please remember that Mid Sussex District Council is asking us to not burn garden waste, or any other waste, during this period. Recently they said: “People are experiencing breathing problems due to the Covid-19 illness and bonfire smoke aggravates these symptoms. We can issue fines of £100 if you continue to burn despite being asked to stop”. Since recycling centres have reopened and garden waste collections have restarted this week, there’s now even less reason to burn waste. Click here for the MSDC guidance.

With thanks to my friend Kirshanda of

The recent meeting arranged by Samantha bringing Fulking, Edburton and Poynings villagers together to exchange ideas on how to tackle Climate Change was a great success and will produce many ideas that we can all share and indeed implement.

The very recent upsurge in local parish level concern is very gratifying in spite of the total denial by some world ‘leaders’. I do urge everyone in Fulking to join us in this very rewarding crusade at the next meeting which is scheduled for Sunday 8th of March in the village hall at 7pm (please check this date/time on the village website).

Many thanks to Emma Osman and her team. Emma is the editor of BN5 magazine which comes through our letter boxes monthly. It is always a fund of local news and advertisements. BN5 is a very good friend of our village when we want some publicity. Periodicals like this are one of the corner stones of protecting village life as we would wish it to be.
