The latest from Rother on the reopening of public conveniences is this –
“For now we have opened a select number of disabled toilets in Bexhill, Battle and Rye for general use and also opened Camber Central PCs over the weekend.”
No mention of Pett Level I’m afraid.

Last week the Pett bin men helped me when I was late getting the rubbish out. I always get a thumbs up and a smile through the kitchen window from them and think we probably take their work for granted in this difficult time.
My neighbour Chloe has drawn a lovely poster for me to stick on top of my bin next week! With Chloe’s permission (and her parents!) I have made the poster available here https://bit.ly/pettbinpic if anyone would like to put a copy on their bin to express the village’s appreciation. If you do not have a printer at home you could always draw your own thank you note!

We stopped charging in our car parks during the height of the pandemic to reduce the risk of infection from use of the parking machines and to allow free and easy parking for key workers and families who were isolating at home. With Government restrictions now relaxed and allowing greater freedom of movement for exercise we will begin charging in our car parks from Monday 18 May.
The exception to this is Camber where we will only open Camber Central car park to allow local people to visit the area and park safely.
Don’t flock to our beaches, visitors warned
We are urging visitors not to travel to our beaches for days out following the changes to Government guidance.
With people now allowed to travel for exercise, we are concerned that an influx of people to Camber and Bexhill beaches could put the district’s residents and visitors themselves at risk.
As well high numbers of people flocking to the coast making social distancing impossible, there will be no lifeguard service at either beach until later in the season due to the RNLI being unable to roll out their normal seasonal lifeguard service.
We will continue to put contingencies in place to manage an increase of visitors to our beaches and are working with Sussex Police to ensure we can do everything in our power to protect local residents and local visitors.

We live at Mill Cottage on Pett Road near the church. We had our shed broken into on Sunday / Monday during the night (I believe) with 2 x chainsaws a blower (from my former life as a tree surgeon) and drill etc stolen. Best to let everyone know to keep things locked up. At the end of last week I had also noticed a tipper transit acting suspiciously along the road which drove off quickly when I approached. Keep safe and many thanks

Just to let neighbours aware that our garden shed was broken into sometime last night (Sunday). The padlock hasp was levered off and door hinges ripped. Fortunately nothing was stolen as we only keep some gardening tools, deckchairs and grand children’s beach toys in there.
