IMPORTANT ROADWORKS INFORMATION                           

Chick Hill, Pett                                                                                              20 December 2023

Dear Resident ,

Balfour Beatty is working in partnership with East Sussex County Council to manage the highways service across East Sussex. As part of this, we will be carrying out drainage works in Chick Hill, Pett.

Once completed, these works will help alleviate flooding to the carriageway and private property.

When do they start?

Work will begin on Monday 15 January and continue for 10 days. We will inform you of any changes to the dates or times via advanced warning signs on site.

How will this impact highway users?

The road will be closed to through traffic between 9am and 4pm.

A diversion route will be in place via Pett Level Road, Battery Hill, Fairlight Road, A259, Friars Hill, Pett Road & vice versa.

If you need vehicle access, please discuss this with the team on site to see if this is possible. Please bear in mind there will be delays whilst the area is made safe and your vehicle is escorted by site marshalls.

Information for residents and businesses

Parking: If required, we will put out ‘no parking’ signs and cones on the site to advise where parking is restricted. Please avoid parking in these locations as it will delay our works.

Weather: All of these works are subject to favourable weather conditions, for example heavy rain may affect the progress of the works.

Properties close to the carriageway may experience a temporary disturbance as this can be a noisy process and those properties may experience flashing lights and reversing sirens.

We would like to take this opportunity to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption this work may cause, however this forms part of our continuing improvement for the East Sussex highway network.

Coffee Morning and Community Library Notes

Pett PC thanks to Vivien Ford for running the Library

Pett PC thanks to Vivien Ford for running the Library

It was a bright and chilly day for the December coffee morning and it was lovely to see so many of you come along to enjoy a hot drink and delicious slice of cake.

During the morning we said a fond farewell and huge thank you to Vivien who has stepped down from the Community Library after five years. We very much hope she will continue to come along each month to see us and have a cuppa and a chat. I (Jane) have now taken on this role and very much look forward to welcoming some new members to our Library in addition to the two new members this month. It is free to join and we have a wide range of books for all tastes so please do come along and support us.

Our Book of the Month for January is the wise and gloriously big-hearted debut novel “Thrown” from the much-loved broadcaster Sara Cox. Concealed passions and heartaches are uncovered, relationships shattered and formed and the possibility for transformation is revealed. All the things that go on in a local community!

There are plenty of other reasons to come along other than supporting local charities when you buy drinks and delicious homemade cakes, why not borrow a jigsaw puzzle or two from Pett Puzzles or have a chat to a member of the Parish Council. Robert will also be on hand from East Sussex Hearing to assist with any hearing aid needs you may have. So please do come along and support us we are a very friendly bunch and look forward to welcoming you.

Next Coffee Morning 10am – 12pm Wednesday 3rd January

Wishing you a very Happy and Healthy New Year
