Fireworks - Rushlake Green - Sat 21st October 2017


The Warbleton and Rushlake Green fireworks are always a tremendous success and offer a brilliant spectacle after an atmospheric torchlit bonfire procession from Rushlake Green.

Everyone will be gathering on the Green from 6.30 - 7.00pm for the procession to the bonfire site, where the fireworks will begin around 7.30 - 8.00pm. Drinks and food will be available (subject to demand!) at the bonfire site. Torches are available to over 18yrs+ members only (for insurance reasons). Anyone wanting to join up as a member on the night will need to turn up early. Membership forms available locally.

Gary and the team at the Horse and Groom will also be pleased to welcome attendees for pre-bonfire procession drinks, so why not turn up early and make a night of it.


New Publicly Accessible Defibrillator

- for Three Cups Corner


A resourceful team of local volunteers recently cleaned up and re-painted the phone box at Three Cups Corner so that a Publicly Accessible Defibrillator could be installed, for use by local residents in a medical emergency. For ResuscitUs, the voluntarily run group behind the efforts to get more defibrillators in local rural areas, this was the culmination of a long process to enable this defibrillator to be installed. After efforts to find a local host location fell through, the Warbleton Parish Council kindly agreed to adopt the phone-box for the purpose. Then, when sufficient funds from local grants and donations had been found, the defibrillator, cabinet, paint and equipment for the phone-box conversion were purchased. Now the equipment is fully operational and ready for an emergency, so please spread the word so that everyone living locally knows about it.

This defibrillator is the final stage of a community-led effort that ResuscitUs has been coordinating for some three years. As a result of the ResuscitUs project there are now defibrillators in:
Rushlake Green - at Osborne House
Bodle Street Green - on the White Horse Inn
Three Cups Corner - in the Phone Box
Punnetts Town - on the Community Hall
Cade Street - on Goward Hall
Broad Oak - on the Village Hall
Old Heathfield - on the Star Inn
Warbleton - on the Black Duck Inn

South East Coast Ambulance, and the local Community First Responders team based in Heathfield, strongly support the idea of local defibrillators to assist with resuscitation after a cardiac arrest. For every minute without CPR and defibrillation after a cardiac arrest, the chances of survival reduce by 10%. So having a local defibrillator can make a vital difference in the period until an ambulance or a community first responder arrive on the scene.


A woman of no importance


The Village Players present a theatre supper production of 'a woman of no importance', by Oscar Wilde, directed by Helen Halliday. At the time of going to press, there were still some seats available for each of the four nights of the production. Tickets (£20 inclusive of a three-course supper) can be purchased online via the village players' website
