Lingfield and Area Community News

Lingfield & Area Community News is a non-profit making, free newspaper, which has been going since 1976. Now published 4 times a year, it is distributed to every household in Lingfield, Crowhurst, Dormansland, Dormans Park, Felcourt and parts of Newchapel, Haxted, Horne and Baldwins Hill - in total over 4200 copies. It carries local news, articles, reports from organisations and letters, bringing an enthusiastic response from many of our readers. Lingfield and Area Community News is able to do all this because of advertising revenue, donations and grants, but most of all because of the voluntary work carried out by a large team of people from our community.


Hello again friends, and welcome to this, our Summer 2018 edition of Community News, bringing you the local news and information you need and want.  It’s a pleasure to have my office window open and some (thankfully tepid) fresh air blowing in, after several ‘Beasts from the East’ paid us all a visit in March. 

My garden’s flora and fauna had a mixed response to the cold weather – lots of flowering plants sadly didn’t make it (looks like that second cold snap really took its toll), but the squirrels, rats and field mice seem to be thriving! Swings and roundabouts, I suppose.  So, who else is looking forward to some proper sun, longer evenings, and building up a lovely (albeit probably short-lived) tan? Surely it can’t be long now, especially as I managed an hour of vitamin D absorption last week. Maybe I’ll manage two hours next week?
