NEWS ABOUT LIFE IN BUXTED

This is our own take on news as we see it in Buxted. News items are based on our observations and / or information found in publications widely available in the village and are not designed to be reporting specific facts for debate and are also not intended to offend. However why shouldn't we all have a view? after all we do live here. If you have a view or a comment to make you can do so on our blog - just click the blog link on the main menu or contact the Parish Council.

WINTER CHAOS or WINTER FUN? [main page picture]

Not for the 1st time did we see the village grind to an almost halt because of heavy snow fall. However why does the A272 seem to be way down the gritting order? Tons of grit and salt kept only 2 miles away does leave a bitter taste when we cannot get to work.  

NEW MEDICAL CENTRE OPEN

The new Doctors Surgery is now open on the corner of Framfield Road which provides excellent facilities and is a much brighter atmosphere than April Cottage. However, it would seem opinions are divided as the the external look of the building. It is nice but is it in keeping with Buxted Village?

ROUND AND ROUND WE GO.....

The new roundabout still catching people out, is it me or has everyone forgot who has the right of way? and this is before we get traffic coming from the new houses. It was a shame that it took about 6 attempts to build the roundabout, kerbs in then out, islands in then out, paint the roundabout, hump the rounabout, paint it again, kerbs done again, paths tarmaced then dug up then done again, roundabout done again, then when all seemed quiet the whole road was dug up again and resurfaced!!!! Ever wonder how much that must have cost? 

CRAFTYJANE RECEPIES

Our new recepies section will go live soon, traditional recepies using 'free' food collected from hedgerows etc. tasy recepies using our free range eggs and much more...

SPRING - AT LAST?

Is spring finally about to appear? We hope so, following a rather extended harse winter we are now back to familiar weather albeit wet  but somewhat milder.
