THE NEW WADHURST RESIDENTS' ASSOCIATION
Who are we
Local Residents who came together as a result of a questionnaire that was
circulated. As a result of this, those who answered the questionnaire were
invited to a meeting and helped set up what is now The New Wadhurst Residents'

We managed to get the footpaths in Washwell Lane, Snape View
and Courthope Avenue dug up and completely re-laid, and while this was being
clone to get Dropped Kerbs installed at convenient points to help the Elderly,
Disabled, and less mobile residents and the Younger Mums with their toddlers
easier access to the footpaths when crossing the roads.
We were involved in discussions to try and save the Post Bus, which
unfortunately failed to happen, but following on with these discussions the
idea of a new bus service was born and was eventually to lead to the introduction
of a New Bus Service funded by Wadhurst and Mayfield Parish Councils and E.S.S.C.
We have been promised an ongoing programme of repairs to footpaths
in other area's of Wadhurst starting this year (2008) albeit, subject, as with
most things nowadays, that the funding still remains available.
We also produce a quarterly newsletter which is distributed
to over 350 homes
we would like done
More Policing in and around Wadhurst, stronger action taken
on illegal parking which is responsible for a lot of the congestion in Wadhurst.
We want action taken against motorists who continually park across the dropped
kerbs in the footpaths.
Firmer action to be taken against Anti-social behaviour and vandalism
