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.
The secretary role will be carrying out administration tasks for the group, as well as possibly taking notes/minutes. There is also the opportunity to assist with any events or duties the group carry out, as and when you are able to.
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. You can find more detailed information on their flyer below:
