Warren Clarke Golfing Dreams charity, based at Horne Golf Club, is seeking to build a centre to help young disabled and disadvantaged young people through playing golf.
There is both a Crowdfunding scheme that can be donated to as well as a collection of unused foreign currency. Please see the links if you can assist in any way.

A bit of physical activity is well known to enhance the quaility of life at any age and it’s never too late to start. It also offers the opportunity to make new friends in the local community.
At the Centenary Hall there is an activity on every weekday, which are always looking for new people to come along and participate in.

Volunteers work improve the foothpath along Plough Road

Burstow Parish Council are working in conjunction with Community Volunteers to improve the accessibility of the footpath along Plough Road.

Over time the width of the path has narrowed to the extend that for much of it it is not possible for 2 people walking alongside each other. This is due to overgrowth on up to a third of the width of the path.

Whilst we can’t do anything about the telegraph pole in the middle of the path, the Community Volunteers will be working to clear the overgrowth to help pedestrians, particularly those with children who walk to and from the school.

Hopefully everyone will appreciate the work being done and be supportive to those doing the work if you see them.

The Police have noticed an increase in the number of ‘close pass’ incidents lately, with reports both of horses running loose on country roads, and of drivers passing too close to riders.

We investigate every report we’re made aware of. If you’re a driver and come across horses running loose in the road, or a rider who has been involved in a close pass incident, we strongly encourage you report it to us. Riders can also use the Horse i app to report incidents to the British Horse Society: https://www.bhs.org.uk/go-riding/report-an-incident/incident-report-form/

Tips for drivers: (Highway code Rules 163, 166, 212, 215 et al)

  • Slow down to a maximum of 10mph when passing horses in the road.
  • Please don’t sound the horn or rev your engine around horses.
  • If safe to do so please put at least 2 metres between yourself and the horse when passing.

Tips for riders: (Highway code Rules 49-55)
  • Make sure you and your horse wear high vis clothing when out riding so you can both be clearly seen.
  • Consider wearing a body camera to capture any evidence of dangerous driving on the roads.

Rural Crime Officer PC Laura Rowley says “As road users we all need to work together to provide a safe environment for everyone, including vulnerable road users. I would urge anyone with information to contact us or, if you don’t wish to speak to police, to contact independent charity Crimestoppers.”
