Certificate of Recognition
The hard work and effort put in by volunteers from East Dean and Friston's Community Watch group during the pandemic lockdown has been recognised by Wealden District Council with the presentation of a certificate of recognition.
Throughout the first lockdown, volunteers from Community Watch provided support, assistance and practical help to vulnerable members of the community and the Parish Council are proud to have nominated and delighted that they have received this award.
Bus Shelter Rebuild: Following the successful rebuild of the Friston north side bus shelter in 2019, work has now been completed on replacing the bus shelter on the south side of the A259 at East Dean. The old wooden shelter has been replaced by a brick built one which should last for many years. Reclaimed bricks and the original roof were used to give the shelter a weathered "Rustic" look to match the existing bus shelter on the south side of the road.
Friston Safety Kerb Re-alignment Completed At Last: After four years of lobbying by
the Parish Council and a payment of half the cost from the precept, ESCC
Highways have now finished work on a safety build-out of the kerb
next to the Crowlink Lane turning at the top of Friston Hill. This change to
the kerb will allow pedestrians to cross the A259 more safely by preventing
motorists from “undercutting” cars waiting to turn right towards Jevington. The "Before and after" pictures are shown below.
Friston Bus Shelter Rebuilt
The bus shelter on the
north side of the A259 at Friston, near Windmill Lane, has now
been rebuilt following its earlier damage through vandalism. The new
shelter is built in brick rather than wood so it should prove more
resilient and last for many years.
