Coffee on the green - we've bean waiting patiently





We are assured by Paul that fresh coffee will soon be served in Rushlake Green village shop.

Credit in Reserve

Providing free credit places immense pressure on small local shops like our Stores, especially now that many suppliers no longer offer shops 28 days credit. In response to requests from loyal customers who want to support their local shop, The Stores now offers 'Credit Reserve' - which allows you to deposit an up-front payment with the shop, which you can then draw upon when you do your shopping on the Green - and no need to take your wallet every time you pop down to the Stores. We think 'Credit Reserve' is a great idea and hope others will want to take it up.

Heathfield Swimming Pool Plans Submitted

A Planning Application for a new swimming pool with improved leisure and fitness facilities, on the Heathfield Community College site, has been submitted to Sussex County Council. This marks a significant milestone for this community-led campaign, which raised more than £40,000 for a feasibility study and planning application. If the application is successful, work can begin on raising the funds required to build the new facility, which will be available for everyone in the Heathfield area.
