Deer management strategy consultation from DEFRA

Just had notification from ESCC Highways that a carriageway patch repair will take place on Hoath Hill.  This repair will be approximately 46.2 metres.
The works will take place on Thursday 25th August.
Hoath Hill will be closed to through traffic between 0800 and 1600 from New Cut to Solomon's Lane.
Traffic will be diverted via New Cut, London Road (A2100) and Solomon's Lane.

I don't live in Mountfield and have just heard today that many properties have no water.  I've contacted South East Water and the outage is due to burst water pipes.
Bottled water is available at the station at Corner Farm Close, Flimwell, Ticehurst TN5 7FE and it is open until 9pm.
South East Water will deliver bottled water to the elderly and vulnerable if water has not been available for two mealtimes.  Their number is 0333 0000001.
You can get updates on the situation by going to the link below.

The teams will be one from Mountfield Cricket Club and the other eleven made up of Mountfield residents and neighbouring villages. If you would like to play, please contact Tom Tidmarsh on – tomtidmarsh@outlook.com

The emphasis will be on fun, so we do hope you will come along and join us. The Parish Council will be offering wine, beer and soft drinks to all who attend – so bring a picnic with you and enjoy the best of village cricket (20/30 overs) in a beautiful setting.

After the main match, there will be an opportunity for local youngsters to play “short-cricket” with expert coaches on hand to advise. Bats and balls will be provided or bring your own.

Sounds very interesting, especially with all the excitement created by the fabulous images from the James Webb telescope.
