Roving Crows visit Beechwood Hall

(published by: website administrator)

16/09/2014

Don't miss the chance to see The Roving Crows.

They are a 5 piece Folk Fusion band based in Gloucestershire and Herefordshire, England. Since forming in 2009 they have released two full length albums and received a number of awards.

Due to differing musical backgrounds between band members, the band's musical influences are widely varied and include traditional Celtic music, Klezmer, Ska, Latino, Jazz, Reggae, Country, Americana and traditional Folk Music.

In late 2011 the Roving Crows went into Rockfield Studios to record their debut album with producer Nick Brine (who also worked with acts such as Ash, Oasis, Bruce Springsteen, Seasick Steve and The Darkness). Bacchanalia was released on the 17 March 2012 with a release party at Gloucester Guildhall and an ensuing tour of the United Kingdom and Ireland including performances at Cambridge Folk Festival.

In 2012 they won ‘Best Folk Act’ at the Exposure Music Awards as well as being noticed by both national and regional BBC radio stations, including airplay on Mike Harding's Folk Show.

Don't miss the chance to see them now before they play the larger venues with the high price tickets!

Service cuts may affect you

(published by: Hamsey Parish Council)

11/07/2014

East Sussex County Council are seeking your views on a number of changes they are proposing to our subsidised bus services.

The proposals would save £1.79m of public money.

However, the proposal for Our parish includes a reduction in service from one bus per hour to one every two hours with some bus services cut to just two days per week.

There are also plans for a large rise in fares.

The parish council will hold a public meeting to discuss these cuts and the fare rise, along with the proposed cuts to our meals on wheels service. Check this website for the date, which will be early in September.

ESCC are keen to hear the views of everyone in the community, which includes businesses and organisations, as well as individuals.

Go to - https://consultation.eastsussex.gov.uk/economy-transport-environment/individualsbuschanges

and if you would prefer to print, complete and return your survey via the post or to an East Sussex library please download the Survey for Individuals.

If you do not have access to a printer, contact ESCC or the clerk to Hamsey parish council and we can arrange to send paper copies to you.

This consultation starts on 7 July and you have until 28 September to take part. We hope that you are able to find time to complete the survey as these cuts will affect many residents in this parish.

Council workers strike - a load of rubbish

(published by: Hamsey Parish Council)

11/07/2014

Residents did not get their recycling bins emptied yesterday because of a strike by some council workers. LDC have said that there will be no extra collections to take the backlog and residents are asked to pile up their recycling until the next scheduled collection in two weeks.

If you cannot store your recycling, it can be taken to any of the mini-centres or the Lewes tip. Bottles and glass can go to the mini centre at the Rainbow, Cooksbridge.

This is quite a nuisance for residents but the parish council has been unable to get LDC to arrange any collection before the fortnight.

Because the parish is trying to get a share of the funds available to parishes which reduce their household waste, we ask that you please don't put the recycling into your weekly waste sack. All the household waste gets weighed and unfair as it is, extra waste will count against us and could cost us a share of any funding.

If you get a chance, do visit the zero for heroes website and vote for your preferred scheme. The group running Beechwood hall are hoping for funding towards replacing the old fencing around the play area and your vote will count.
