PLEA TO THE RESIDENTS OF EAST WORLDHAM
One of the problems about the traffic speeding through East Worldham is that motorists do not perceive it as being a settlement with lots of people living here. It was once described as a ‘hamlet on a bend’. Most of us live behind hedges or fences so that our houses are barely visible from the road.
At the Parish Council meeting in July, the appearance of the village was raised, as councillors had received complaints that ‘the place looked like a tip’. Concern was expressed at the weedy state of the pavements, over-hanging branches and brambles coming from the gardens of neighbouring houses and unkempt verges.
Since then EHDC workmen have been to mow the grass opposite the village hall and other areas. The Lengthsman (a service the Parish Council is given by Hampshire Highways up to a total amount per year of £1000) has been asked to cut back the vegetation growing over the path between the village hall and the Three Horseshoes and to deal with brambles on the pathway between the Playground and Old House Gardens. Some other minor works will be carried out by the Parish Council which has very little funds to spend on this work.
SO the Parish Council is asking householders to look OUTSIDE their own properties to please make sure these areas are safe and pleasant to look at and that East Worldham looks as if it is inhabited.

MISUSE OF THE PRIVATE ROAD BETWEEN B3004 AND BLANKET STREET AT EAST WORLDHAM
There are have been a number of instances recently when walkers and more particularly cyclists have been found on this road which at the top of Worldham Hill by the Village Hall, leads to Manor Farm and comes out on Blanket Street by Drove Cottages.
This is a private road, for access only, and should not be used by members of the public unless they have the express permission of the owners.
MISSING WINE GLASSES
Until recently there was a box of wine glasses stored in the kitchen in East Worldham Village Hall for general use. These seem to have disappeared.
If you have inadvertently failed to return them (probably before March of this year) please could you contact Kate Denyer Tel 01420 541362 so that they can be returned to the Village Hall.
