Roadworks December 2012 - AgendaThe road from Lurgashall to the A283 is now nearly finished and is open again to most traffic.
TAKE CARE at the crossways crossroads as there is an open deep excavation there and already a large artic lorry has knocked over the protective barriers. It is also impossible for a long vehicle approaching from the A283 to turn left down towards River Common as the excavation blocks half the road width. I have already helped one long artic reverse back to the A283.. The watermain that runs up Hillgrove Lane has recently been transferred to the new poly main at the crossroads. Work will cease over Xmas/NY and then commence again in 2013.

5th Lurgashall Arts & Crafts Exhibition - November 2012Yes it has come around again already so get your exhibits planned - last one was in 2009.
Broadband SpeedWell, last year we did not get many people signing up for Northchapel exchange BT Infinity upgrade. We now have another chance this time to influence WSCC as to how they will spend their £6.26 million to support Broadband Internet access to West Sussex. You can go to WSCC Better Connected site to find out more and importantly put your comments to them.
So far Lurgashall has had 26 registrations on the WSCC website. (Lodsworth 17, Northchapel 6, Plaistow 63) which I think not only reflects the size of the parish but how good your current connections are.

Sussex Police now 999 or 101The rollout of the national non-emergency police number 101 has at last reached Sussex (you wonder why they did not have a national number years ago). You now have two simple numbers to remember. Emgergency 999 and Non-Emergency 101. Hants was a beta test area and has been on this for over a year but it's become a national rollout. Much easier when travelling not to have to remember local numbers. (101 replaces the earlier Sussex 0845 6070999 number and will only cost 15p from mobile or landline however long your call)
Still use 999 if
