Newtown Action Group was created 14 years ago with Selby Meadow becoming a community garden, but has since grown as the local council asked various areas across the county to take greater responsibility for their communities. Along with tending to tasks such as dealing with grit bins, paths and parking, they act as a conduit for local residents to raise concerns or potential issues, which they will then take up with the relevant authorities. They also work with a children’s group in Uckfield, who provide a weekly small child and mother group.
They are looking for individuals to help out, with a wide net for what they are seeking in any applicants. From those with handy skills such as fencing or gardening, able to help maintain the community gardens, to anyone who’d be interested in helping run small local events. There is no age in particular they are looking for, as the tasks are so varied there is bound to be something to suit anyone interested.
Newtown Action Group are going to be holding a meeting at the Alma Arms (Framfield Road) on the 6th of December, for residents to raise any concerns, but this will also be a perfect chance to meet the current organisers and ask any questions about the group.
