At the Parish Council Meeting: last week the Chairman reported on the correspondence between Brighton Bus Company and Highways England. It all sounded very petty, ‘we brought the lay by up’ – ‘No you did not’ in the end Highways England capitulated. They are now saying that the design for the new lay by will probably be ready to be perused in February. We look forward to a progress step forward.

Calendars: are now on sale with pictures of Falmer present and Falmer past, can be purchased from the church for £5.

Now we are again a House with a view: to our great delight the new owners, who have purchased the Park Farm field have had the leylandii trees felled. The view has always been there, but over the 50 years we have been in Falmer the trees have taken it away, and now it is back, it is just wonderful.
