By Laura Heales, Action in rural Sussex - What is the state of volunteering in the Heathfield area? On one level, the answer to this is ‘vibrant’ however, there does seem to also be a theme emerging, both locally and nationally, that volunteers are needed more but available less. The idea of Volunteer Centres is not new. However, the idea of developing one for Heathfield is recent and has grown from the concerns of its voluntary community. A steering group has now been formed in order to develop the idea and see if it can be made to work. This is being supported by the Parish Council but led by the community. You can contact us (see below) to add your name and email to the list of people who will get updates and invites to events and consultations. For more information please contact: Laura Heales, Village Agent, Action in rural Sussex, 07940 275611, laura.heales@ruralsussex.org.uk or Jenny Watson, Development and Representation Manager, 3VA, 01323 639373, Jenny.watson@3va.org.uk 4 www.heathfieldchamber.co.uk www.heathfield.net

Hailsham and Heathfield Scout District Each Scout Group caters for Girls and Boys: Beavers 6-8yrs, Cub Scouts 8-10yrs, Scouts 1014yrs and the District Explorers Unit 14-18yrs (lovell1009@btinternet.com). The District consists of 6 Scout Groups, the 3 in this area are: • 1st Broad Oak and Punnetts Town (lovell1009@btinternet.com) (acting Group Scout Leader) • 1st Heathfield (jackie@octoberhouse1.idps.co.uk) (Group Scout Leader) • 1st Horam (horamscoutgroup@uwclub.net) (Group Scout Leader) Recently these three groups joined together at a camp site near Tunbridge Wells with scouts from Holland and Sweden to enjoy what is called Tri-Camp; suffice to say it was the English that hosted this year. This occurs every three years and each nation taking it turn to host the event, next time (2018) Sweden will be the hosts, so plenty of time to save up. This is just one event that makes scouting fun, however, to be able to continue offering varied and fun programmes we are always on the lookout for leaders/helpers to assist in giving quality programmes that encourage self-confidence, friendliness and skills/activities the young people might not otherwise experience. If you or someone you know is able to give time to help please contact the Group Scout Leaders, as above, or call 01323 840099 for more information. The Heathfield Partnership Sports and Leisure Committee - We are now looking for new opportunities to raise capital for the build and to that effect have written letters to the Secretary of State and Minister regarding funding. ICT Committee - We are recording just over 6,500 hits a month and the target is still 7,000 hits a month. The Facebook page (www.facebook.com/heathfieldabout), and Twitter account (https://twitter.com/heathfieldabout) are up and running so please use this social media to promote your club/group/event. Transport Committee - The “Youth Express” is continuing with providing one-off trips for Youth Centre members to attend local venues and events and also Heathfield Works! use this service. Strong liaison is being made to ensure the commercial bus services for Heathfield are retained. We are also looking to co-ordinate services provided by the third sector which are of benefit to residents either of Heathfield or people who wish to visit the town to shop. Inward Investment - We continue to look ahead for new locations on which to base a bid for funding to secure an enterprise centre. It remains an important priority for the Partnership. Police Local Action Team - The local committee made up of representatives of the whole Parish community continues to liaise with our Heathfield area Police team to ensure all 6 needs of the community; business and residential, are being met. A new investment in a fifth camera is being investigated with sponsorship on offer ahead of commencement. The Heathfield team are continuing to monitor serious car parking offences where obstruction is dangerous. Farmers Market - The market continues to be successful. The market is held every third Saturday in the month in The Co-Op Supermarket car park, Heathfield, between 9.00am and 12.30pm. Heathfield Works! - Cohort 17 started on the 5 October and will finish on the 11 December. We are now seeking to review the model being used to open more flexibility. Already we have opened the door to widen the age range from 16-24. Some young people now need more support than ever before to get to a stage of being employable. We still have wonderful support from the Parish Council and the business community. We are still seeking funding now for 2016/17 to cover the total cost of the project.

Her contact details, as well as all other Members of the Council, can be found on the Parish Council’s website, www.hwpc.org.uk.

The Hub will operate very much in partnership with the new Volunteer Centre so that all aspects of services in the parish can be improved and strengthened and their Steering Group will be working towards this. One of the objectives of the Volunteer Centre will be to inform potential volunteers of vacancies which exist in the local area, as well as providing information to those who might need such services. Planning - There have been some recent major planning applications in the parish, including the redevelopment of Holdenhurst (currently at appeal stage) and new development at Dad’s Hill, Cross-in-Hand, which the Parish Council objected to for several reasons including inadequate access onto the B2012. Wealden District Council are consulting on their Issues, Options and Recommendations paper, which forms part of their Local Develwww.heathfield.net opment Framework and includes proposals for 800 houses in Heathfield. We are holding a Public Meeting to discuss these proposals on Wednesday 11 November, 7.00pm, in the Main Hall at Heathfield Community Centre. Budget - The Parish Council are currently considering their budget requirements for the 2016/2017 financial year. There are increasing pressures on us to undertake additional services and the cost of these have to be balanced with the Council’s existing responsibilities and the Parish Council will be making every effort to make the budget as fair and reasonable as possible. Season’s Greetings - As this will be the last Heathfield First edition before Christmas, all Members and Officers of the Council hope you have a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful, healthy and prosperous New Year.

Cross-in-Hand WI This has been a busy year for Cross in Hand WI. There have been the usual visits to local places of interest as well as meals out at different venues. Earlier in the year, we had a very enjoyable lunch at Eastbourne College where the students worked hard to provide an excellent meal which was beautifully presented and served. Our annual garden party was this year held in the Mayfield garden of one of our members .As well as enjoying afternoon tea in the sunshine, ladies were Invited to take control of the model railway which was laid out under the trees at the end of the garden. Following this, there was the usual Cross in Hand Fun Day where our stall attracted lots of buyers for our cakes, jams and plants, etc. As this has been theCentenary Year for our organisation, we decided to mark the occasion with afternoon tea at the Holy Cross Priory. Posh frocks and hats (if available) were dusted off for the afternoon and a most enjoyable time was had by all. Future visits include a garden centre and lunch at a golf club. If you would like to find out more, please phone Joy on 01435 812819 or go to www.esfwi.org.uk. We meet on the 4th Wednesday of each month in the village hall at Cross in Hand.

It was such a privilege to have been there and to listen to the band of the Grenadier Guards playing the National Anthem in the grounds of Buckingham Palace. 8 www.heathfieldchamber.co.uk www.heathfield.net

Heathfield Community Police Team Lock up your vehicles – and leave your valuables at home. No matter where you park your vehicle, opportunistic thieves are easily tempted when they see property on show. I would like to use this article to ask car and van owners to review the security of their vehicles to reduce the risk of them becoming victims of theft. When leaving your car: • Don’t leave anything on view inside – items such as clothing, cigarettes and even a small amount of loose change can encourage a break-in. • If you are leaving car, even for a short length of time, take any valuables with you – or even better don’t bring them with you in the first place. • Don’t think items will be safe in the boot or ‘hidden’ under seats or in the glove box – these are the first areas that thieves will look. • Close windows, doors and sunroofs; lock all doors and the boot and activate your car’s alarm. Van owners can also be targets for thieves who want to gain access to the tools kept within. The monetary value of the equipment stolen in these incidents is considerable, but the knock-on effect in terms of reduced earnings, because of the loss of essential tools, can be even greater. When leaving your van: • Always ensure that you leave your vehicle properly locked and protected by a good alarm, even if you are leaving it for a brief amount of time. • It is always best to remove tools and other items of property from your van overnight and store them somewhere safe. If this isn’t possible, a lockable cage fitted to the inside of your van can provide an extra layer of security. • Keep your van keys safe while working and never leave them in your van. • Security mark all tools and equipment and place a sticker in your van window to say you have done so. • Keep a list of your tools and equipment, along with serial numbers and any identifying marks; you can do this for free at www.immobilise.com To finish, I would also like to ask residents to be vigilant and report any suspicious behaviour that they see around parked cars. Information from a member of the public was one of the elements that led to the recent discovery of a huge number of items, suspected to have been stolen from cars and vans, as well as a number of arrests. Enquiries are ongoing but this is a great example of how you can help us prevent and detect crime. So, the next time you see anything you think is suspicious, no matter how small, please report it via the Sussex Police website, 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101. If a crime is actually in progress, always call 999.
