BOBs Recreation Ground Committee – Competition

You will by now have all seen the latest addition to the play equipment at the recreation ground. Our boat has weathered the stormy winter well, at times we were scared she was actually going to set sail heading for the river Brede. But she stayed steady and is looking forward to warmer weather and welcoming lots of children to come and play this Summer.

Huge thank you to Chris Allum, our resident village carpenter, who took Julie and Bruni’s sketches and measurements and made them into a reality. It is great to have such a unique piece of play equipment and something celebrating the local maritime heritage.

Now the drier weather is here (hopefully) she can have a coat of paint and be officially named.

To be in with a chance of naming the boat and getting your picture in the paper write your name suggestion along with your own name, address and phone number on a piece of paper and put it in an envelope with a minimum 50p donation (towards more play equipment).

Return it to:

Ashville (between bakery and school)
Udimore Road

Or

Elm Tree Cottage
Rhias Glade (behind bakery)

By 22nd of April. The names will be put to the BOBs committee to choose and the winner will be notified by the 1st of May.

Good Luck!

Rye NPT Monthly Report October 2013

I have found the following incidents for the month of October. As usual I have not included domestic incidents, internet crime or weather related matters.

Broadoak Brede.

On the morning of the 9th, two door to door sellers were active on the Northiam Road just north of the crossroads.
On the 21st, sheds in the grounds of two homes in Furnace Lane were entered by offenders who went through the garden of an empty property, over a fence and broke in to two sheds. A mower was their intended target.
Two road crashes involving deer on the B2089 have been recorded. Read the rest of this entry »

BROADOAK BREDE.

On the 11th of September just after midnight a single vehicle crash occurred on the B2089 close to Broadlands Row. The driver was slightly injured.

On the 16th, the owner of a property situated near Sowdens found that his fence had been damaged by a vehicle which did not stop.

On the 20th, again on the B2089 close to the junction with Hundredhouse Lane, a car left the road and hit a pole. The driver suffered shock.

On the 25th, some bags containing bones were found dumped in Pottery Lane. Possibly they came from a deer which may have been butchered elsewhere. Read the rest of this entry »

Rye NPT Monthly Report August 2013

PC Nigel Collins is no longer compiling your monthly reports. It therefore remains with me to report crimes and incidents. I hope I get it right and on time.

UDIMORE.

No crimes recorded in Udimore during August, however a road traffic crash on the A259 Winchelsea Road on the 9th caused traffic to use the lanes as a diversion causing gridlock. I am continuing to liaise with supervision in an effort to remedy this.
A speed check on the B2089 road on the 21st resulted in a number of offending drivers receiving advisory letters. Some outstandingly high speeds were recorded. Read the rest of this entry »

Broad Oak ‘kindest people in England’

A letter published in the latest Rye and Battle Observer reads:

The villagers of Broad Oak must be some of the kindest people in England. My brother Robin Pegler was found on the floor of his lounge having been there all night and unable to get up. A neighbour (aware of his problem) saw him through the window and phoned the emergency services. He has been in The Conquest for several weeks and has been diagnosed as suffering from Parkinson’s Plus which apparently is incurable.

Hitherto he had for a long time been falling periodically when out shopping and in his house. Many villagers had occasion to pick him up but as he was so stubborn he always refused any further help. A keen gardener and often winner of The Brede Tidy Garden Competition, he was lucky to have one neighbour who latterly came to his aid with the lawn etc., and his other neighbour has been so informative that I feel I’ve known her all my life.

He has two male friends of long standing from outside the village who have made my problem of distance (living in Worcester) much easier,and I hope many of Rob’s friends from Broad Oak will read this as a small token of my appreciation of their help.

Robin is very unlikely to be able to return home but he has been extremely lucky to have lived in such a friendly place. My thanks to all concerned.

Philip Pegler

Summer Butterfly Walk in Beckley Woods

There will be a public walk in Beckley Woods on Saturday, 10th August 2013, meeting initially at 10:30am. Enter the wood via the entrance on Horseshoe Lane.

The walk is intended to be a casual, guided wander around Beckley Woods looking for – and hopefully finding – some of our wonderful summer butterflies. We could see Silver-washed Fritillary, White Admiral, Peacock, Red Admiral and more. Plus, there are dragonflies galore! Much conservation work has been done in this Forestry Commission Wood, using funding from Butterfly Conservation, over the last few years and the results are beginning to pay off.

Children are very welcome – in fact, children are actively encouraged to attend, but no dogs please as they tend to frighten the butterflies and sometimes other visitors. We look forward to meeting you.

Rye NPT Monthly Report July 2013

Udimore
There are no incidents of crime to report this month however there were two road traffic collisions that did occur. The first was on the 7th July when a car and motorcyclist collided and minor injuries were suffered by the rider of the motorcycle.

The second collision occurred on the 26th July when a single vehicle travelling on the B2089 left the road close to Tibbs Farm and ended up in a field. I am pleased to say that the occupants of the vehicle involved only suffered minor injuries as a result of the collision.

Broad Oak/Brede
Only one incident of crime to report to the residents of Brede this month Read the rest of this entry »
