Mountfield Village Hall is getting into the Christmas Spirit!
The Children's Christmas Party is on Saturday 14.12.19 from 12 - 2pm.  Food, drinks and, of course, that Very Special Visitor.
Again on the 14.12.19, in the evening, there will be a Christmas Quiz with a 7.30-8pm start.  There is a £5 per person entry and this will include a buffet.  There are prizes and a Christmas raffle.  No more than 6 people per team please.
Reserve your table now by emailing - steveclsmith@hotmail.co.uk or phone/text 07895 463231.

As usual over the Christmas period there will be changes to waste collection arrangements with no collections on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Eve.  From Monday 13.01.20 all waste and recycling collections will return to their normal days.
This year RDC will not be sending out calendars to residents, thereby saving £16,000 in postage alone.
To find out when your waste and recycling collections will take place over the Christmas period, please go to the links below - you can also subscribe to My Alerts and RDC will email you weekly reminders and local information.

As in previous years, garden waste collections will be suspended for two weeks over the Christmas period from 25.12.19 to 07.01.20 inclusive.

Rother District Council is consulting on its budget for 2020-21 and has to find over £3M in savings.
They would like to hear your response on the options to change how their services are delivered as this work will be delivering a substantial part of their proposed savings.  The consultation is open until 31.01.20.

Oops and apologies!  I made a mistake in my post about the Mountfield Bonfire and Fireworks yesterday - so I am now republishing a corrected post (correction in bold type).
Our now famous Mountfield Bonfire and Fireworks will be held on Friday 1st November 2019, gates open at  6pm - there will be a barbeque, hot drinks, and other refreshments.
Entrance from Solomons Lane.
It will now be a free entry event this year due to donations from Southern Water and Barhale, but donations gratefully received towards Mountfield Village Hall funds.
