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.

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.
