Due to the current situation with Corona Virus, regretfully Mountfield Parish Council are cancelling the Parish Assembly that was due to be held on 14.04.20.
Very shortly I will be publishing information and help on Corona Virus, particularly how we can all help and look out for each other in this emergency.

Due to the current situation with COVID-19 (Corona Virus), Mountfield Heath School cannot host the Mountfield Parish Assembly this year.  We completely understand their reasons - they have vulnerable children there and school closures may be imminent.  Hopefully they can host the Assembly in 2021.
The Mountfield Parish Assembly will now be held on 14.04.20 in Mountfield Village Hall.
I and other Rother Clerks are waiting for information from Rother District Council (due next Monday) on parish council matters affected by the Corona Virus.
This website will become the conduit for local information on the virus, please encourage people to sign up for email alerts/pass the information on if you can.

Apologies to one and all - item 7 on the agenda should, of course, read Mountfield PCC not Dallington PCC.  Either yet another senior moment or the rotten cold I've had on and off since last November.  A corrected agenda is linked below.

P.S - I've just heard that ESCC Highways have installed traffic lights due to the flooding on the A2100!

A change of venue this year!  The Mountfield Heath School has very kindly offered to host the Assembly 2020 and we all look forward to a great evening.
The Mountfield Heath School is at John's Cross TN32 5JW (with good parking) and their website is at - https://www.mountfieldheathschool.co.uk/
So, come along and join us on Tuesday 14th April for the Mountfield Parish Assembly 2020, enjoy a glass of wine and meet the people from our Mountfield organisations, find out what they are doing and meet up with friends and neighbours.
It's a friendly and informal evening and a great chance to catch up with Mountfield news.
We hope to have a guest speaker - more details later.
This year is the 900th Anniversary of our beautiful church - All Saints - and we hope the Parish Assembly will play a part in this.  It's going to be a busy and exciting year for Mountfield.
The Assembly will start at 7.30pm, it is not a parish council meeting, but a great chance for us all to get together.
Please come back to me - Irene (Parish Clerk) if you need any more information.

Despite heavy rain leading up to the event, a dozen stalwart people turned out to help the first organised Mountfield Village clean-up/uplift on Saturday 19th October.

After gathering at the hall, they were kitted out with specialist equipment, before being shipped out to various pre-planned routes around the village. Each group litter picked their way back to the hall, where a hearty reward of hot food and drinks had been laid on for them. Remarkably for such a small village, over 110kg (250lb in old money!) was collected - and more remarkably was the contents……dirty nappies, fast food containers (that must have Costa lot) enough parts to build a car and a sea of urine contained and discarded in plastic bottles. We all eat, drink and have urgent needs whilst on the go but #PleaseTakeYourLitter Home.

This event was the first,  supported by a grant from Rother District Council, led by members of Mountfield Parish Council and a teenage Duke of Edinburgh Volunteer, initiated to get the Community thinking about their neighbourhood and how they would like it to look, including sustainable planting and verge maintenance plans for the future. We are hoping that this might include families with children in the future as these are the generation that can grow and learn to make a more positive difference. Thanks to Battle Area Community Transport who provided bus and driver to get the happy pickers to their start points and to Mountfield Parish Council Clerk, Irene, for the yummy buffet afterwards and an amazing well done to the intrepid (and muddy!) volunteers…and if the owner of the matching black lacey bra and knickers would like to come forward to collect, we are holding the items…but not for long!
