Annual Village Meeting (Assembly) - doors open 7pm
3rd April 2017



All residents of Salehurst and Robertsbridge are warmly invited to this annual community gathering.


There will be displays and information from representatives of local groups and organisations, and a short presentation about the Living Garden project at Robertsbridge Community College. And there will be a delicious (free) finger-food buffet and glass of wine.




This is a meeting for the whole community - it is NOT a Council Meeting and no ordinary Council business will take place. However, your local Councillors will be present and after their brief reports you will have an opportunity to ask them questions on parish matters or make comments and suggestions.


They will also be available to meet and chat to informally if you would like to.


This is your chance to see and hear about all the great things going on in our lovely village, so do come along - and encourage family, friends and neighbours to come along too.
