Mayfield festival has changed its line up to maximise appeal

More potholes in Eridge and Crowborough could be filled in, now a £1.2million road repair fund has been agreed.

This is East Sussex County Council’s share of a £100million government grant and was announced last week by Wealden MP Nus Ghani.

The Minister for Transport said she had written to the authority to ensure her constituency was ‘given its fair share’ of the money.

‘The state of the roads in Wealden is one of the most pressing issues to my constituents and me,’ said Ms Ghani.

‘Potholes and roads in a poor state of repair cause untold issues for cars, vans, cyclists and lorries. They can cause serious damage to vehicles as well as becoming a safety risk for all road users.

‘I am delighted to see the Government has continued to commit to repairing potholes across the country.

‘It is vital that East Sussex County Council ensures the roads in Wealden receive the repairs they so desperately need, as they serve as major trunk roads not just for East Sussex but for the entire South East.’
