There are forecasts of possible heavy snow overnight Thursday 31 January 2019. The Parish Council has grit/salt bulk bags which we place in 7 locations around Hurstpierpoint and 1 in Sayers Common. The grit/salt is for anyone to use on the public roads and footpaths (but definitely not for private use). Click here for locations.
We follow the weather forecast and also rely on advice from the Highway Authority (West Sussex County Council) to decide when to distribute the grit/salt bags. Today, Thursday, the forecast suggests that the snow will be short-lived and temperatures will rise over the next couple of days. While there might be some short-term disruption on Friday morning, the problems are expected to pass quickly. We therefore do not intend to distribute the bags for the moment.

Nearly 50 acres of meadowland has now been acquired by the Parish Council, for access by the public and for preservation of the natural countryside. This is part of the Council's Neighbourhood Plan which was approved by over 90% of the community in our referendum in 2015.
The area is north of Trinity Road, west of College Lane, and east of Iden Hurst and Fairfield Crescent, with points of access currently from the Millennium Garden (Trinity Road), Highfield Drive, Latchetts Lane and St Georges Green.
Over the coming months and years we will be introducing new planting, to reinforce the indigenous species, introducing a community orchard, improving access and adding noticeboards and maps to help everyone understand and enjoy the areas.
