The High Sheriff of West Sussex Special Recognition Volunteer Award

Rudgwick Parish Council and Holy Trinity Church are delighted that their nominations for four Rudgwick parishioners to be awarded this recognition has been successful. later this week, Dr Fooks, High Sheriff of West Sussex will personally present Ariane, Graham, Paula and Vicky their award. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, this is to be a very "exclusive" event at Rudgwick Hall. The four volunteers were pleasantly surprised to not only be nominated but also to be successful. they stressed that this award is not just for them, it is for all those people who have (and still are) volunteering during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Council and Church are certain that you would all wish to join them in their congratulations.

Loxwood Clay Pits Ltd

A company known as Loxwood Clay Pits aims to extract the clay for use in brick-making and also wants to build a construction materials recycling facility on the site over a 33-year period.

It is currently seeking views from West Sussex County Council and local parishes/ residents and has issued a scoping report on its proposals before submitting a formal planning application.

The proposed site is on the old Pallinghurst Estate, north east of Loxwood and west of the A281.

On the 25th August Protreat Ltd (consultants to Loxwood Clay Pits Ltd) ran a Zoom webinar (see link for contents) to provide information regarding the plans for the development of the Loxwood Clay Pit (a pre-planning application has been submitted) . It has been confirmed that Loxwood Road will be used for vehicle movement.

A second webinar has now been arranged for Tuesday 27th October at 5pm.

Should you wish to register for this webinar, please use the following html link or scan the QR Code using your smartphone or tablet camera. Unfortunately, some people who registered for the last webinar shared their registration link, resulting in some multiple log ins and one ‘anonymous’ attendee. Therefore, additional steps have now been taken to authenticate all registrants:

  • Place all waste in a plastic rubbish bag and tie it when full.
