Local Community Websites
The Parish website includes Parish Council meetings and planning issues, and encompasses Rushlake Green and Bodle Street Green, together with the hamlets of Warbleton and Three Cups as the main areas of settlement within the parish of Warbleton.
The Burwash village site is run by the Parish Council and is very comprehensive – with plans for further enhancement over time. Some useful local trade entries, a good section on local attractions (including Batemans of course) and some interesting editorial, contributed by talented local people, on topics such as sustainability.

In response to the twin pressures of Peak Oil and Climate Change, some pioneering communities in the UK, Ireland and beyond are taking an integrated and inclusive approach to reduce their carbon footprint and increase their ability to withstand the fundamental shift that will accompany Peak Oil. One of those communities is Mayfield. The goal of the Transition Mayfield is: “a sustainable future, achieved through community led projects, which will enhance the social, environmental and economic well-being of our village”.
The Punnetts Town website acted as a focus for the campaign to raise funds for the new village hall and surgery.
