Accommodation Required

I am a nutritionalist, Reiki healer and run workshops. I am looking for accommodation in Forest Row or surrounding areas as I am studying acupuncture in East Grinstead.

Would be useful to work from where I am living offering Emotional Freedom Technique, nutrition advice etc, but not essential. If you think that you may have something suitable or know someone who might, please pass my details on - 07746 900 280… Continue

Forest Row has its own electric vehicle charging point --- and it's free!

Forest Row has its own electric vehicle charging point  --- and it's free!

 Over the last year there has

been a increase in electric

vehicles in and around the

village. WiredThing, a Forest

Row based software company,

32amp charging point was 9

miles away. With that in mind,

they decided to approach

Forest Row Parish Council to see if they could

Backyard biology

Becoming aware of the diversity of life on our doorsteps is another side to our developing understanding of where we live and our interdependence. Wildlife isn’t just something that exists in far-away places that we watch on TV. There is an astonishing variety of life in our gardens alone, and it is much more complex and diverse than we might imagine.

Over the weekend of 1-2 June, there is a national wildlife…

Notes re: meeting of Community Orchard Group 14/1/12 at the proposed site near children's swings on Rush Green

I was a bit late, coming from work, and when I got there the others were in the little copse to the west of the Green, talking about maybe taking down a few of the trees to put apple trees in there instead and my heart sank as I wouldn't really want to be part of removing any healthy trees.


Anyway in the end we were favouring Wendy's plan to plant trees along either side of the path just beyond the swings which would be a great plan, I feel, as it would add something new to…

Forest Row woman urges volunteers to get stuck in to community garden project

Mieke Vierling has spent the last two years restoring her 19th-century home, a former doctors' surgery in Lewes Road.

She is turning it into an "educational centre" where she will carry out yoga and acupuncture.

But outside she is creating a space for residents to "take responsibility for their own healing", with a garden full of medicinal plants and herbs.

The edible hedgerow has been planted alongside a public path, made up of trees including…

Navigating Change

While change is constant, we are not always clear about how change happens in society and what we can do to bring about the change we want. So where do we start? One way is by adopting new ways of doing things ourselves, "being the change we want to see in the world". So how about '…
