Dermatology Services – We want local views
Skin problems and issues affect all ages and we are keen to hear from people who have experienced local dermatology services, whether themselves, their children, family members, or as carers for someone who has.
The reason is that High Weald Lewes Havens Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is reviewing dermatology services as part of a joint initiative with East Surrey, Crawley, Horsham and Mid Sussex CCGs.
We need to understand how services can continue to be delivered and improved over the next five years.
Please find attached a flyer with information about Dermatology Forum which you are invited to attend at Uckfield Civic Centre on 27th April.
Please come along and share your views.
For those people who can’t attend in person there will be the opportunity to provide feedback via a survey that will be available on the CCG website in early May.
If you have any questions, please contact the CCG at email@example.com.
To open the invitation, please “right click” on the link below (Dermatology Invitation) and select the option “open link in new tab”.
Please contact the membership secretary if you experience any problems.
It is with much regret that I have to announce the passing of one of long standing members, Helen Livings, on Saturday 3 March 2018.
Helen was a highly valued member of many local voluntary organisations in The Havens and up to a couple of weeks before her death, was a Trustee and Chair of C.T.L.A – one of Helen’s passions.
As well as C.T.L.A, Helen was also for many years a Trustee of Kempton House Day Centre in Peacehaven, and we mustn’t forget that she was Mayor of Peacehaven and a Peacehaven Town Councillor for many years, and very recently had agreed to take up the reins as Treasurer at Rowe Avenue Surgery Patient Participation Group.
Helen’s sudden death came as a huge shock not only to her devoted Husband, John and her family, but also to the members of the community that knew her so well, or even not so well.
John has now advised of Helen’s funeral arrangements – the funeral will take place on Thursday 29 March 2018 at 3.30pm at the Woodvale Crematorium, South Chapel, Lewes Road, Brighton BN2 3QB.
The family will then return to the Telscombe Civic Centre, 360 South Coast Road, Telscombe Cliffs, BN10 7ES where you will be more than welcome to attend.
John has asked that there be FAMILY FLOWERS ONLY – any donations to Helen’s Charities (C.T.L.A. or Kempton House Day Centre) – these donations may be made direct to: c/o Rachel Ford at the Co-op Funeral Care office in the Meridian Centre Peacehaven BN10 8BB. There will also be a collection box at the crematorium for LIFEBOATS (Helen was rescued from a yacht in her younger sailing days).
All are welcome to attend to pay their respects to Helen – John would be delighted to see you there.
Carers Week is an annual awareness campaign which takes place in June to celebrate and recognise the vital contribution made by the UK’s 6.5 million unpaid carers – people who look after a relative, friend or neighbour who couldn’t manage without them.
Each year, Care for the Carers, along with partner services, organisations and community groups, host a range of events around the county to celebrate Carers Week and recognise the vital contribution that the estimated 65,000 carers in East Sussex make to their families and communities.
We are delighted that as part of their ongoing support for the Care for the Carers building Carer Friendly Communities and to highlight Carers Week, Meridian Senior Forum are hosting an event to celebrate Carers Week on Wednesday, 13 June 2018 from 10.00am to 1.00pm in the Main Hall of the Meridian Centre, Peacehaven BN10 8BL.
We hope to see as many of you there as possible in order to help support Care for the Carers and all carers in the area covered by the Meridian Mature Citizens Forum.
Please see the attached information leaflet from the East Sussex Against Scams Partnership.
It may be a bit too late to arrange attendance at the free event at Eastbourne on 15 March 2018, but I would encourage you to give it a go if you can – very informative.

I am writing to let you know that the 12-week public consultation on our Household Waste Recycling Site Service has now started and ends at midnight on 15 May. The online survey is now live on the Consultation Hub.
Links to the survey, as well as FAQs and the full Service Review, are available here on our website.
We are consulting on these proposals:
- The introduction of charging for certain waste types that are not ‘household waste’ (i.e. rubble, soil, plasterboard, tyres and asbestos) at the Household Waste Recycling Sites
- The possible closure of the part-time recycling sites at Forest Row and Wadhurst
- A review of recycling site opening hours against demand for the service
We would like to hear from anyone in East Sussex with an interest in the recycling sites, particularly if they feel they would be affected by our proposals.
If you don’t feel it is appropriate for you to complete the consultation survey, but you have comments on the proposals and the consultation, please let us have your feedback by email before the consultation period ends.
After the consultation has ended, the views people share with us will be analysed and presented to East Sussex County Council’s Cabinet later this year to help the Members make a final decision on what happens to the service.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
