Here's an update on the Burwash Neighbourhood Plan


VOLUNTEER SCHOOL CROSSING PATROL

Could you spare half an hour a week to help keep the children in our community safe?

Following a number of unsuccessful attempts by East Sussex County Council (ESCC) to recruit a permanent member of staff for the Burwash school crossing patrol, there is now a proposal to recruit volunteers to cover the role across the week

The scheme organisers are looking for ten volunteers, each willing to commit to a specific regular weekly half hour shift. They will be trained, insured and supported by ESCC.

Volunteers must not be responsible for their own children whilst on duty. Anybody over the age of 16 can apply, as long as they are fit and able to stand/hold a lollipop sign for the duration of the shift.

It is hoped that the new team will be able to attend an introductory session with a staff member from ESCC at the end of this month, ready for the volunteer crossing patrol to be in place when school goes back after the Easter holidays on Tuesday 23 April. 

If you think that you might be interested, or want to find out more, then please click here and complete the form - or you can call 07793 052622 for more information

RECYCLING NOTES
Villagers may have noticed their recycled glass being tipped in with other recylables by Rother District Council refuse collectors. In case you felt disheartened that your recycling separation efforts were being wasted, Rother has reassured us that all glass is still being recycled. An RDC official told residents that more glass is being collected than expected and the glass compartment of the truck is filling up more quickly than the recycling compartment. So to allow the crews to stay out longer on their rounds and avoid wasting time by returning to the depot, they sometimes mix glass with recyclables on the truck. Once at the recycling facility, the glass is separated back. But the official urged residents to continue separating glass and other recyclables.
